Oklahoma’s loss was Miami’s gain.

Kameron McGusty will transfer into the Hurricanes’ program after spending the last two seasons with the Sooners, he announced Monday.

“First off I would like to thank god for the opportunity too be able to play at another (university),” McGusty wrote on social media. “Also I want to thank my friends and family for the support they have given With that being said, I have decided to commit to the University of Miami!”

McGusty had a promising freshman season for Oklahoma in 2016-17 when he averaged 10.9 points, but saw his role and production decline in a sophomore season in which he averaged 18.5 minutes per game. The 6-foot-5 guard shot 42.3 percent from the floor and 33.3 percent from 3-point range.

McGusty will have two years of eligibility remaining after sitting out the 2018-19 season under transfer rules. The Hurricanes went 22-10 last season and was ousted in the first round of the NCAA tournament by eventual Final Four participant Loyola.
