On Tuesday night, just hours after losing freshman guard Trayden Williams to the transfer portal, Robert Morris landed a commitment from former Oklahoma State guard Ferron Flavors Jr.

The 6-foot-3, 190-pound guard was a graduate transfer for the Cowboys this season, after spending his college career at three different schools. After attending South Mountain Community College, Fairfield, and California Baptist, he averaged 3.4 points and 0.8 rebounds per game in his lone season at Oklahoma State.
After starting the first seven games of the year and playing at least 18 minutes in six of the team’s first seven games, Flavors’ role decreased, as he only scored in seven of the last seventeen games he played in.
“You talk about a kid that brings something to the table, he has been a proven shot maker pretty much his whole career,” Oklahoma State coach Mike Boynton said about Flavors in a film session posted to the team’s YouTube channel. “You talk to anybody that has worked with him, who’s coached him. who has played with him, he knows who he is.”
Flavors’ best season of his college career came at Cal Baptist back in 2019-20, when he averaged 13.5 points and 3.5 rebounds per game. He will look to provide spacing, experience, and leadership for the Colonials while looking to improve on his shooting numbers from past years.
In this past season with Oklahoma State, he shot a solid 53% from the field, but only 36% from 3-point range.
Flavors now joins a Robert Morris squad that is coming off a 4-15 season and multiple roster changes, including the losses of guards Dante Treacy and Williams to the transfer portal.
