STILLWATER — Curtis Jones’ time at Oklahoma State was short.

The shooting guard who transferred from Indiana and became eligible last December has entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal, according to 247Sports.com.

Jones provided value as the team’s sixth man, providing 8.1 points and 3.0 rebounds off the bench, while shooting 32.5 percent from 3-point range in nearly 22 minutes per game.

Jones transferred from Indiana in the middle of the 2017-18 season and had to sit out a year before becoming eligible. He played 23 games

His departure will open yet another spot in the Cowboys’ already strong 2019 signing class. OSU coach Mike Boynton reportedly has been in the mix for Jalen Wilson, a 6-foot-8 swingman from Texas’ Denton Guyer High School. The four-star prospect decommitted from Michigan after Jim Beilein left to become the head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Jones is the second OSU player to enter the transfer portal, along with forward Duncan Demuth. Four other players were dismissed from the team last season.
