Oklahoma State remains one of the more active players in the transfer portal as head coach Mike Boynton works to fill out his roster for the 2021-2022 season.

The latest player that the Cowboys are in on is sophomore Georgia transfer Sahvir Wheeler. According to Jeff Goodman of Stadium, OSU made the cut for Wheeler, along with Texas, Kentucky, Kansas, Gonzaga, Michigan, LSU, Oregon State, Stanford and Wichita State.

Goodman says Wheeler “wants to go somewhere where he can play in the Final Four.”

Last season for Georgia, Wheeler averaged 14.0 points, 3.8 rebounds, 7.4 assists and 1.7 steals per game last season. That said, Wheeler saw his shooting averages drop across the board his sophomore season, shooting just 39.9% from the floor, down from 47.2% as a freshman. He also saw his turnovers per game jump from 2.9 to 4.4.

That said, with Isaac Likekele returning for another season, Wheeler would make a great back-up.

Oklahoma State has just one commit for 2021 in Syracuse transfer Woody Nelson.

There is a question as to just how many scholarships Oklahoma State will have available for next season (though 2 more would be max currently), but as of now, it seems like Boynton is trying to land both a backup point guard and another big man.
