Another Oklahoma men's basketball alumnus inked their first professional contract.

Rashard Odomes announced Wednesday he'll join Umea BSKT, which is a basketball club based in Umeå, Sweden, and plays in the top level of Basketligan.

The 6-foot-6 guard finished his four-year Sooner career in March. He averaged 7.0 points and 3.0 rebounds per game from 2015-19.

Odomes was a freshman on OU's 2016 Final Four team and helped the Sooners make the NCAA tournament during his junior and senior seasons.

He now begins the next chapter of his playing career in Sweden's premier professional basketball league.
