Guerrero pops for Oklahoma State

After taking a handful of recent visits, Cezar Guerrero made his college decision. He'll play in the Big 12.

One of the top remaining lead guards made his decision on Monday.

Cezar Guerrero, of Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco, verbally committed to Oklahoma State, according to his travel team coach Dinos Trigonis.

"Having LeBryan Nash a part of the class with him was attractive," Trigonis told Scout.com. "J.P. Olukemi is a sophomore. He had a good year and is returning."

"He wanted to be in a situation where he didn't feel like he had to carry the load," Trigonis added. "Not that he can't do that, but he understands at a higher level he can't do everything by himself."

A number of other high major programs made a play for Guerrero, but the recent coaching changes helped him come up with a decision.

"With [Jeff] Capel going down [at Oklahoma], it made the decision a little easier," Trigonis said. "Iowa was in there too."

Guerrero, a three-star prospect that ranks among the top 25 point guards in the country, also felt comfortable with Travis Ford as his head coach.

"He felt good with Travis being a guard coach," Trigonis said.

Guerrero and Nash, a top 10 recruit, make up their two-man 2011 recruiting class.
