Oklahoma guard Frank Booker is transferring to Florida Atlantic for the upcoming basketball season, according to multiple sources, including

The junior from Augusta, Georgia, played two seasons for the Sooners, starting all 64 games over that time while averaging 5.1 points per game. OU currently has eight guards on their roster, which would make it harder for Booker to gain more playing time.

Booker will have to sit out next year due to the NCAA’s rule on transfers, but retains two more years of eligibility after that period.

Booker will be one of three transfers coming to Boca come next year, including juniors Ronald Delph (Auburn) and Adonis Filler (Clemson, sat out last season).

Rising senior guard Solomon Poole (Georgia Tech) was the one of the first transfers to play under head coach Michael Curry, averaging 12.5 points per game in 22 games in his first season with the Owls.

Booker will come into a less crowded backcourt with the Owls, and will compete for a spot in the rotation for the 2016-2017 season.
