Oral Roberts star and former college basketball scoring champion Max Abmas has entered the transfer window, so which programs should take him?

College basketball’s transfer portal got a new star, though not from a program that usually brings such things to the table. But Oral Roberts star Max Abmas is no ordinary player, and now he will lead the Golden Eagles to a power conference team in need of a dominant point guard.

ESPN’s Jeff Borzello was the first to report that Max Abmas will enter the transfer window.

The 6-foot-6 Dallas native spent four seasons at Oral Roberts and will now be at Portal as a graduate transfer. He joins the likes of Caleb Love, Hunter Dickinson, Kel’el Ware, MJ Rice and many others. But Abmas has the best resume of the bunch, averaging at least 21.9 points per game in each of the last three seasons, including leading the nation in scoring in 2020-21 and leading the Golden Eagles to the Sweet 16.

So where could Max Abmas end up in the transfer window? These five transfer directions will make a lot of sense.

Wichita State Shockers


Wichita State could land Max Abmas a coup to go after HC Paul Mills

Wichita State, despite their success as a program over the past decade, certainly stands out among Abmas’ potential destinations, but they might also be the most logical.

One of the reasons Abmas stayed at Oral Roberts for four years in college basketball, despite his proven scoring prowess coveted by major programs, was because he wanted to stay with head coach Paul Mills. But now Mills has left the Golden Eagles, which is a big reason Abmas is now on the move, too.

And where did Mills end up? You guessed it, Wichita State. The Shockers have struggled in recent years, but bringing in Abmas to jumpstart the program under a new head coach familiar with the guard would make a lot of sense.
