Oklahoma State Signs Transfer Guard Jarius Hicklen

May 14, 2023

STILLWATER – Oklahoma State men’s basketball has announced the signing of North Florida transfer guard, Jarius Hicklen, one day after he committed to the Cowboys.

Checking in a 6-3, 170 pounds, Hicklen spent the first two seasons of his college career at Oklahoma Baptist in Shawnee, OK, and the past two seasons at North Florida, where he’s coming off a solid senior season.

It’s interesting that Hicklen spent his first two college seasons in Shawnee, Okla. at OBU.

Originally out of DeSoto (TX) High School, the grad transfer averaged 12.5 points on 38% shooting from the floor, including a 36% clip from 3-point range. He also shot 76% from the free throw line. His season also included impressive performances at Washington (19 points on 40% shooting), at Kentucky (17 points on 50% shooting), at Pittsburgh (15 points in 45% shooting) and at Houston (12 points on 36% shooting).

In his two seasons with the Ospreys, Hicklen averaged 12.2 points and shot 38% from beyond the arc.

There are now two scholarships remaining, preferably for a true point guard and one big man. Boynton and Co. have signed five high school prospects, F/C Brandon Garrison, wing Eric Dailey Jr., CG Jamyron Keller, G/F Justin McBride and G/F Connor Dow. They’ve also signed transfer guard Javon Small and big man Mike Marsh.
