Former top-100 guard Curtis Jones has found his newest landing spot.

The 6-foot-4 sophomore will transfer to Oklahoma State, according to multiple reports.

Jones announced early last month that he would leave Indiana at the semester after playing a year-and-a-half for the Hoosiers. He averaged about 11 minutes per game in both seasons in Bloomington while putting up 3.0 points and 1.3 rebounds per game this season under new coach Archie Miller

“We appreciate Curtis’s contributions and wish him nothing but the best in the future,” Miller said in a statement when Jones’ transfer was announced.

Out of Huntington Prep, Jones had offers from the likes of Georgetown, Virginia and Xavier before ultimately picking the Hoosiers.

In Oklahoma State, he’s joining a program in transition. The Cowboys are under their third coach in three years after Travis Ford was fired and Brad Underwood bolted for Illinois, giving assistant Mike Boynton the helm of the program. The Cowboys have been stronger than anticipated so far this season with a 10-3 record. Boynton has a pair of three-star commitments for his 2018 class. Jones is expected to be eligible starting in the second semester of the 2018-19 season.
