St. John’s landed a commitment from Missouri State transfer Ron Mvouika on Tuesday morning.

Mvouika announced his decision on twitter.

As a junior with the Bears, Mvouika averaged 6.8 points in 18 minutes, shooting 39.7 percent from three, but due to a back injury this past season, he only managed to play in two games. Having spent his first two seasons at a Junior College in Wyoming, Mvouika will be eligible immediately for the 2015-16 season as a graduate transfer.

Mvouika, who hails from Paris, is a bigger guard at 6-foot-6, but he can play both back court positions. With D’angelo Harrison, Phil Greene and Jamal Branch graduating this year, adding a bit of versatility in the back court is important for Chris Mullin.
