Former Oklahoma State power forward Kamari Murphy committed to play his final two years of college ball at Miami, he announced on Wednesday.

Murphy averaged 6.1 points and 6.3 boards as a sophomore with the Cowboys. He started for much of the season after Michael Cobbins went down with an achilles injury in December.

Murphy will have to sit out the 2014-2015 season due to the NCAA’s transfer regulations, but he will have two years of eligibility remaining in 2015-2016. He’s the latest example of head coach Jim Larranaga’s ability to tap into the Big 12 transfer market. Miami will be adding former Kansas State guard Angel Rodriguez and former Texas wing Sheldon McClellan this season.
