The shooting guard helps fill a massive void.

Oklahoma State acquired the services of one of the most sought-after 3-point specialists on the transfer market with California Baptist graduate transfer Ferron Flavors Jr. on Monday.

Flavors, who began his career at Fairfield before transferring to Cal Baptist, picked the Cowboys over Detroit, Wake Forest, Washington State and Xavier. The 6-foot-3 shooting guard averaged 13.2 points per game and shot 43.9 percent from 3-point range this past season for the Lancers.

The list of OSU’s incoming players for the 2020-21 team was already eye-popping, headlined by No. 1 overall recruit Cade Cunningham. Talent shouldn’t be an issue for the Pokes going forward, but outside shooting was.

With OSU losing its three most reliable deep threats in Thomas Dziagwa, Cameron McGriff and Lindy Waters, Flavors will address the Cowboys’ 3-point need immediately.

Adding an experienced guard to OSU’s roster who is a proven shooter is never a bad thing, and Flavors will fit in perfectly for the 2020-21 team.
