Sophomore guard Bijan Cortes announced his entry to the transfer portal on Wednesday. The news was first reported Monday by Verbal Commits and The Athletic.
March 22, 2023
Cortes is the third Oklahoma player to enter the transfer portal after sophomore guard C.J. Noland and freshman guard Benny Schröder. The Kingfisher native averaged 3.2 points, 1.6 rebounds and two assists per game this season, while shooting 44.2 percent from the field and 48.1 percent from 3-point range.
He played 59 games under coach Porter Moser. He took a leave of absence from the team on Feb. 21 citing personal reasons before returning to OU’s rotation on March 1 against Kansas State in Manhattan.
Oklahoma will likely see more action in the transfer portal after finishing the season 15-17 without a bid in March Madness, the NIT or CBI.
