BASKETBALL: Cowboys sign 4 to 2013-14 class

STILLWATER — Oklahoma State has signed four players to National Letters of Intent in the sport of men’s basketball, it was announced today by head coach Travis Ford. Three high school seniors and a junior-college sophomore will join the Cowboys for the 2013-14 season.

Jeffrey Carroll, a 6-5 wing from Rowlett High School in Texas, is ranked as the No. 21 player in the state of Texas according to Texashoops.com. He averaged 17.4 points and 4.6 rebounds per game as a junior, leading his team to a 22-9 overall record, including an 11-3 mark in District 10-5A. Carroll is a three-star recruit according to Rivals.com. He chose Oklahoma State over Kansas State, Oklahoma, Nebraska and TCU.

“Jeff Carroll is a player I just fell in love with this summer,” said Ford. “I didn’t know a whole lot about him until I saw him on the AAU circuit. He’s an extremely physical, big guard who can shoot it with great range, can score off the dribble, and is just an extremely athletic wing. He was probably one of the biggest surprises on the circuit this summer. He was one of the most consistent players I saw, and really fits our style of play. He can run, jump, press, shoot the basketball, and I really like the way he can score. He’s got a great body for this level, and can play a lot of different positions.”

Leyton Hammonds is a 6-8 forward from Richland High School in North Richland Hills, Texas. He is a three-star recruit according to Rivals.com, and is ranked as the No. 16 player in the state of Texas according to Texashoops.com. As a junior, Hammonds averaged 14.3 points and 7.1 rebounds per game in leading his team to a 27-4 record overall and a 15-1 mark in District 6-5A. He chose OSU over interest from Clemson, Kansas State, Oklahoma, Stanford and TCU.

  • DSC_0114web.jpg SOCCER: JV Lady Zebras edge Verdigris, 2-1

    Claremore sophomore forward Brylee Brasher may have felt a little out of position Monday night during the junior varsity game against Verdigris.
    Normally, starting in the goal for the Lady Zebras varsity team, Brasher came out of her comfort zone to start at forward for the Claremore JV.
    The position switch proved to be a great decision for head coach Robin Sutherland, as Brasher showed a tenacity on offense that led to Claremore’s 2-1 win over Verdigris.
