Oklahoma State’s basketball staff has made an offer to late-rising junior college prospect Doudou Gueye in hopes of bolstering the roster in 2019 with experience.

Gueye, who is currently with Daytona State College, is a 6-foot-10, 245-pound big man, and he’s had a bit of a winding journey to get to where he is.

Coming from Dakar, Senegal, he played the 2014-15 and 2015-2016 seasons at South Carolina State, then left for Ball State in 2016-17 as a graduate transfer. He then departed there after 19 games for the junior college ranks.

He played one game at SC State in 2014-15, so despite a full season worth of grad transfer experience at Ball State (19 games, and one start), it is believed he has one season left of eligibility remaining. He played fewer than 10 minutes per game at every high major stop.

The offer to Gueye isn’t inspiring on paper, but his offer sheet that includes Arkansas, Texas Tech, Seton Hall and East Carolina is. As is the fact that at Daytona, he’s averaging 10+ points and 6+ rebounds per game in close to 30 contests this season.

Adding Gueye would be a boost to OSU’s depleted frontcourt that saw Kentrevious Jones and Maurice Calloo get booted from the team earlier this year. With his experience and size, he could be a nice piece to complement Yor Anei, and potentially provide a bridge to the Kalib Boone era as he packs on pounds to become an impact player at the next level.
