Austin Grandstaff to Transfer to DePaul

6-4 shooting guard Austin Grandstaff has plans to transfer to DePaul. Grandstaff is leaving Oklahoma after joining the Sooners back in January.

Austin Grandstaff previously played for Ohio State. In his freshman season, Austin appeared in 10 games and averaged 4.4 points per game while playing 11.5 minutes per game for the Buckeyes.


Austin is originally a native of Rockwall, Texas. Coming out of high school, Grandstaff was rated as a four star prospect by Scout.com. He was ranked as the 60th best player in the nation and the 15th best shooting guard in the class of 2015.


Grandstaff will give DePaul coach Dave Leitao even more firepower from beyond the arc as he continues to build up the Blue Demons program.

“I felt good about it and I trust the (DePaul) coaching staff,” Grandstaff said of his decision.

In particular it was the relationship that Austin has had with DePaul Associate Head Coach Rick Carter that played a big role in his decision to choose the Blue Demons.

“We’ve had a good relationship since he was at Missouri,” Grandstaff said of Carter.  “He’s just one of the few people I trust.  I always wanted to play for him.  When nobody else was really in my corner, he was still there, so that showed a lot.  Then I got to go on the visit and all of the coaches there, they are really good people.”
