Junior transfer guard Umoja Gibson has received a waiver from the NCAA, granting him eligibility for the 2020-2021 season, the OU men's basketball team announced Friday.
The North Texas transfer joins the Sooners as an immediate impact player, as he averaged over 14 points per game and shot over 39 percent from three last season, and was named to the All-Conference USA Second Team.
Gibson led North Texas in minutes last season, giving the Sooners another veteran presence to lean on down the stretch. The 6-foot-1 guard joins a talented backcourt along with senior Austin Reaves and sophomore De’Vion Harmon.
OU opens its season hosting a non-conference game against University of Texas at San Antonio, Nov. 25.
