Hornbeak picks OU

Jelon Hornbeak, a native of Texas, will play in the Big 12.

During an official visit to Oklahoma, Jelon Hornbeak gave Lon Kruger and his staff a verbal commitment.

"He committed," Hornbeak's high school coach Ray Forsette told Scout.com. "He said he liked it and had a good time."

The Arlington (Tex.) Grace Prep coach said he enjoyed coaching Hornbeak because of his toughness.

"He's a tough kid," Forsette said. "He's a grinder. He's going to get in there and guard you. He can do it all. He can shoot it. He's a true combo guard any coach would love to have."

Hornbeak, who also considered South Florida, Houston and Colorado, joins Buddy Heild to make up the Sooners current 2012 recruiting class.
