TULSA, Okla. – Graduate transfer forward Kerwin Smith has signed to play for Oral Roberts, it was announced by Head Coach Paul Mills Wednesday.

Coach Paul Mills on Smith
"I am excited about Kerwin joining our basketball team. He has experienced winning as a high school and college player.  He shot better than 57% from the field for his career and has nearly identical block percentage numbers as one of ORU's finest defensive players in Albert Owens. Kerwin will bring experience and leadership to our team and I'm confident he will make a great contribution to our team this upcoming season."
