Wyoming sophomore forward Amath M'Baye will be an Oklahoma Sooner next season.
The 6'9 native of France averaged 12 points per game as well as 5.7 rebounds this past season for the Cowboys. The Pokes will most certainly miss both M'Baye and Desmar Jackson, who last week announced will be transferring to Southern Illinois University.
M'Baye posted on his Facebook wall "Boomer Sooner" around 11:00pm Sunday evening and confirmed in a later post that Norman, Oklahoma is the destination for next season.
M'Baye was second on the Cowboys in scoring and minutes played and was the team's top rebounder averaging close to 12 points and 5.7 rebounds per game.
M'Baye played in all 31 games this past season and racked up 940 minutes of playing time, second behind Francisco Cruz's 966. M'Baye shot 47.5% from the field as a sophomore for the Pokes, who lost to TCU in the Mountain West Conference tournament play-in game.
New Sooner coach Lon Kruger is familiar with M'Baye as Kruger has spent the last seven years in the Mountain West Conference as head coach of the UNLV Runnin' Rebels. Both will spend their first year in Norman together, but M'Baye is likely to sit out all of next season due to NCAA transfer rules.
