Oklahoma State combo guard Curtis Jones will transfer to Penn State to play out his final year of eligibility. Jones, who announced the commitment on Twitter, is a graduate transfer who is immediately eligible.

The former four-star recruit from Richmond, Va. started his college career at Indiana. He transferred mid-season in 2017-18, allowing him to become eligible at Oklahoma State for the start of conference play in 2018-19.

Jones averaged 8.1 points, 3 rebounds, and 1 assist per game last season. He won't be a flashy player or a prolific scorer, but he should provide more security behind Jamari Wheeler than redshirt freshman Daniil Kasatkin would. He shot over 34 percent (30-87) on threes in Big 12 play, but only shot 38.5 percent (5-13) on free throws during that same span.

With Jones on board, Penn State has reached its full allotment of scholarships for the 2019-20 season. Any further additions on the transfer market would require the departure of a player on the current roster.
