Oklahoma Sooners guard Austin Grandstaff could be leaving the program.

Grandstaff’s father says there’s “a good chance” the guard won’t be back at Oklahoma.

Oklahoma freshman guard Austin Grandstaff might be leaving the program just a few months after transferring from Ohio State in late December. Grandstaff was a walk-on and practiced with the team during the spring semester, but Wes Grandstaff, his father, confirmed Sunday that the family is discussing the possibility of Austin Grandstaff leaving the program.

“We’re still talking about it,” Wes Grandstaff said. “We’re not for sure yet. There’s a good chance of (leaving Oklahoma).”

Wes Grandstaff cited personal reason for the transfer.

Reports on Tuesday said that Austin Grandstaff had in fact parted ways with Oklahoma.

He said the family is working through options and that Austin Grandstaff has had discussions with Oklahoma coach Lon Kruger.

“It’s looking more and more like we probably won’t be coming back,” Wes Grandstaff said.

In 10 games at Ohio State, Austin Grandstaff averaged 4.4 points and 11.5 minutes per game. He decided to transfer to Oklahoma in order to be closer to his infant son, Knox.
