Oklahoma Sooners guard Kameron McGusty announced on Monday he's requested the opportunity to transfer from the program following the 2017-18 college basketball season.

McGusty, who would have been in line for a more expansive role next fall with Trae Young entering the 2018 NBA draft, confirmed his decision on Twitter: 

Along with Young and McGusty, the Sooners are also slated to lose fellow guard Jordan Shepherd, who announced his intent to transfer Saturday.

The 6'5", 192-pound McGusty averaged 8.0 points and 1.9 rebounds while shooting 42.3 percent from the field, including 33.3 percent from three-point range, in 32 appearances this season.

The Seven Lakes High School standout from Katy, Texas, signed with Oklahoma in November 2015 as a 4-star prospect in the 2016 recruiting class, per 247Sports' composite rankings. He was also rated as the No. 41 overall prospect and the sixth-best shooting guard in that year's group.

McGusty didn't discuss which schools he will consider as transfer options.

Seniors-to-be Christian James and Rashard Odomes are projected to lead the Sooners backcourt next season following the offseason overhaul.
