Grant Sherfield has withdrawn from the 2022 NBA Draft to play for the Oklahoma Sooners.
Grant Sherfield told @Stadium he will withdraw from the NBA draft and attend Oklahoma this season. Huge news for the Sooners.

The 6’2″ guard began his career at Wichita State, where he averaged 8.1 points as a freshman. He then transferred to play for Steve Alford at Nevada, and he immediately was a high-impact performer for the Wolf Pack.
Sherfield averaged 18.6 points per game (second in the Mountain West Conference) and 6.1 assists (first in the MWC) for Nevada in the 2020-21 season, which resulted in a first-team All-MWC selection. He followed that with 19.1 points per game (fifth in the MWC) and 6.4 assists (first in the MWC) in the 2021-22 season.

So, Sherfield is a terrific get for Oklahoma head coach Porter Moser. The Sooners — who went 19-16 but finished the 2021-22 season 30th on Ken Pomeroy’s rankings — also added transfer guard Joe Bamisile, who averaged 16.3 points and 5.0 rebounds for George Washington in 2021-22.
And Sherfield is a huge loss for Nevada, who — unsurprisingly — has seen a lot of turnover after an extremely disappointing 13-18 season (despite a ton of talent). The Wolf Pack will have an entirely new backcourt in 2022-23, with high-scoring guard Desmond Cambridge also transferring.
Sherfield has two years of eligibility remaining, but already testing the draft waters would suggest that he’ll probably choose to leave for the pros next time around.
