Max Abmas has made his transfer decision. The guard, who led the nation in scoring as a sophomore, is headed to Texas.
The news has college basketball fans talking online as they post reactions about his future with the Longhorns.
Abmas played four seasons with Oral Roberts, averaging an incredible 20.8 points per game for his career. His most impressive season saw him post 24.5 points a night in 2020-21 when the Golden Eagles went to the Sweet 16.
ORU was back in the NCAA Tournament this past season after winning 30 games in the Summit League. Unfortunately, their season ended in the first round with a loss to Duke.
Abmas announced his decision to enter the transfer portal earlier this offseason, and unsurprisingly, he had many suitors. Two of the top programs to reach out hailed from the Big XII in Texas and Kansas State.
On Thursday, he made his choice.
College basketball analyst Jeff Goodman reported that Abmas would be headed to Austin for his final season. The announcement gives Texas a huge backcourt addition as they look to build upon their Elite Eight run from last year.

Max Abmas should provide an immediate boost for the Longhorns next season. This is a major “get” for first-year head coach Rodney Terry.
