Oklahoma State basketball’s season opener against Green Bay won’t be short on storylines.

Former Oklahoma State signee Jeremiah Johnson on Monday committed to the Phoenix and new coach Doug Gottlieb, Johnson announced via X. Johnson joins Isaiah Miranda as players with OSU ties to commit to Gottlieb, a former OSU point guard, in Green Bay.

Johnson requested his release from his national letter of intent last month. He committed to and signed with the Cowboys under Mike Boynton, but Boynton was let go after this past season. OSU hired Steve Lutz in his place. After Johnson’s request was granted, he took visits to Green Bay, Texas A&M and most recently Florida before electing to join Gottlieb.

Johnson’s first college game will still be played in Gallagher-Iba Arena, as the Phoenix are set to play the Cowboys on Nov. 4, according to multiple reports.

Along with Johnson, Gottlieb landed Miranda out of the transfer portal. Miranda, a 7-foot-1 athletic center, announced his commitment to Green Bay last month. Miranda played in three games with the Cowboys this past season. He totaled eight points and seven rebounds in his 16 minutes on the floor with the Cowboys.

Green Bay hired Gottlieb in May when Sundance Wicks left the program after one season. Gottlieb’s name has come up as a candidate the past three times OSU’s job has been open, with his detractors pointing to his lack of coaching experience. Green Bay is Gottlieb’s first major head coaching job. Gottlieb spent last season in a consultant role for Boynton.

Gottlieb is OSU’s all-time leader in assists, dishing out 793 when playing under Eddie Sutton from 1997 to 2000.
