Make it two: Kameron McGusty chooses Miami

Paul Austria
What a name, right? Anyways, two days after Anthony Mack decided to transfer to Miami on his visit, Kameron McGusty chose to do the same on Monday following his weekend visit. McGusty is transferring from Oklahoma and will have two years of eligibility remaining after sits out a year. Kam played two seasons with the Sooners and averaged 8 points last season in 18 minutes/game, a dip from his 10.9 points average the year before, possibly due to the emergence of freshman Trae Young. The Hurricanes were able to beat out Virginia Tech and Houston for McGusty, and the hope is that McGusty will help fill the void left by the departures of Lonnie Walker, Bruce Brown, and Ja’Quan Newton.


McGusty definitely has that potential to provide additional scoring if the opportunities are there. During his freshman season, he averaged 14 points/game in conference play, which helped him earn a Big 12 Honorable Mention. But once Young entered the picture, his starts and overall production went down a bit. Nevertheless, another body won’t hurt the Canes and even though we won’t see him until 2019-20, his addition will help the team a lot in terms of depth until the investigation cloud passes.

Also worth noting is that Zach Johnson, local boy and transfer from Florida-Gulf Coast, also took his visit this weekend. He is also due to visit Creighton, Arizona, and Louisville in the near future.
