Wyoming transfer Amath M'Baye should have a immediate impact on Oklahoma’s basketball squad in the 2012-13 season.

His talent and competitive nature has been on display during his transfer season as he challenged his teammates while playing on the scout team.

“He clearly is the most competitive [player on the roster],” coach Lon Kruger said. “And that will change a lot of the other guys.”

Kruger also expects M'Baye to step in as a leader on the squad.

“Amath is very naturally a leader,” Kruger said. “This year we had guys, [Romero Osby] really worked at it, but that’s not his natural personality. For Amath it is. That’s good for the other guys, it’s one less thing they have to worry about and Amath wants that.”
