Oklahoma State landed a solid big man transfer late this week with the addition of St. John’s sophomore Yankuba Sima. The transfer destination of Sima was first reported by Jon Rothstein of FanRag Sports.

The 6-foot-11 Sima was a solid rim protector for the Red Storm as a freshman as he put up 7.3 points, 5.7 rebounds and 2.5 blocks per game in 23.4 minutes per game. As a sophomore, Sima saw his minutes decrease to around 17 per game as he was averaging 6.0 points and 3.5 rebounds per game. Sima’s shot-blocking numbers dramatically decreased to 0.5 per game as a sophomore but his free-throw shooting did improve from 38 percent to a respectable 72 percent.

Sima will likely have to sit out the first semester next season and should be available for the second half of next season for Oklahoma State.
