Sooners sophomore point guard Milos Uzan set to enter transfer portal

Oklahoma will be in the market for a new starting guard. Sophomore Milos Uzan is expected to the transfer portal, according to a report Sunday evening from Joe Tipton of On3.

Uzan’s decision comes after the Sooners missed the NCAA Tournament for the third consecutive year.

The 6-foot-4 sophomore point guard averaged nine points, 4.4 assists, and 3.4 rebounds per game this season, while shooting 39% from the field. He started all 32 games for OU.

A former four-star prospect, Uzan joined the Sooners in 2022-2023. In that first season with the Sooners, he cracked the starting lineup and finished with 7.6 points and three assists per game. Uzan was named to the Big 12 All-Freshman Team.

Expectations were high for Uzan in his second season with the Sooners. There was even some NBA draft buzz. His numbers improved this year but didn’t quite reach the lofty heights some had anticipated. His decision-making never took a step forward.

One of the biggest knocks against him this year was his three-point shooting. His efficiency from deep dropped from 40.8% in his freshman year to 29.6% this season.

Uzan joins Otega Oweh and John Hugley as key rotational players departing for the portal this offseason.
