Tulsa Grad Transfer Jeriah Horne Picking Up Interest from Oklahoma State

Could Horne make the move from TU to OSU?



It wouldn’t be a long drive from one school to the next if Jeriah Horne ends up at Oklahoma State.

Horne is a 6-foot-7, 222-pound forward who played the past two seasons at Tulsa. He announced Thursday that he was going to enter the transfer market as a grad transfer, and Friday, Jon Rothstein reported that OSU has since reached out to him.

Horne averaged 11.1 points and 5.2 rebounds a game last season for Tulsa as a redshirt junior. He originally went to Nebraska out of high school, joining the Huskers after being a three-star prospect in the 2016 class. After averaging 4.3 points and 1.9 rebounds as a freshman in Lincoln, Horne transferred to TU.

This past season at Tulsa, Horne shot 33.9% from 3, and he also hit 86% of his free-throw attempts. He primarily played at power forward.

Horne is from Overland Park, Kansas, sharing a hometown with OSU center Yor Anei.

The Cowboys are in need of a power forward after losing long-time starter Cameron McGriff to graduation.

Coach Mike Boynton has one scholarship left to round out his 2020 class. Horne’s name is one of four that have been thrown around over the past week or so for the spot, along with would-be freshmen JT Thor and Donovan Williams and Western Michigan transfer Michael Flowers.

At this point, roster-wise it would make the most sense for OSU to swipe up a power forward (Thor and Horne), but Boynton will have a 6-foot-6 point guard next season in Cade Cunningham. That lends some flexibility on the defensive end.

Boynton and Horne have got to see each other in person at least twice. When OSU played Tulsa in 2018, Horne was the Golden Hurricane’s six man. He came off the bench and scored 16 points and had seven rebounds as TU upset OSU. Before this past season, OSU and Tulsa also played in a closed-door scrimmage.
