Just hours after another piece fell from the 2020-21 Robert Morris men’s basketball team, Andy Toole and company received a commitment from Oklahoma State grad transfer Ferron Flavors.

The Colonials add a 6’3” guard in Flavors, which in result fills the void for freshman guard Trayden Williams, who elected to enter the transfer portal earlier today.

Although Flavors competed in the Big-12 this past season for a 21-win Oklahoma State Cowboys team, he only averaged 3.4 points per game in an average of 11.6 minutes per contest. His season-high of 12 points came against Oakland earlier in the season, which will be a familiar foe next year in Horizon League play.

Prior to his lone season for the Cowboys, Flavors was a key member of the 2019-20 Cal Baptist squad that also reached 21 wins on the year. As Flavors averaged 2.93 3-pointers per game, along with a 42.7 shooting percentage, he found himself atop both statistical categories in the Western Athletic Conference.

Despite having a down year with the Cowboys, Flavors will look to regain his stride in Andy Toole’s program and find the double-digit mark in scoring as he did in his first two seasons of collegiate basketball.

It has been no secret that the NCAA has become more and more prone to players entering the transfer portal. The Colonials have seen five players enter the portal since the back half of this year’s campaign.

Andy Toole however has done a nice job answering the bell by bringing in several players from strong conferences, including the addition of guard Rasheem Dunn, who joins the Colonials after departing from St. John’s of the Big East.

With the offseason underway, the Colonials look to continue to fill in the missing pieces due to the abundance of transfers this year.
