Kameron McGusty commits to Oklahoma

Kameron McGusty had originally planned to cut his list of schools to four on Monday. Instead he went ahead and made a verbal pledge to Oklahoma.

Kameron McGusty, Scout’s No. 29 ranked recruit, told Scout on Monday that he has verbally committed to Oklahoma.

“Ever since the first time I was there I loved it,” McGusty said. “My parents knew that. I felt like at the end of the day Oklahoma was where I was going to end up. Everything about it felt right. My parents felt the same way about it.”

“I feel like Oklahoma is the school that can give me the best opportunity,” he added.

McGusty said he also strongly considered Florida, Louisville and Texas A&M. McGusty took multiple unofficial visits to Oklahoma and was followed by Lon Kruger throughout the July evaluation periods.

“It was more of an opportunity thing,” he said. “It felt at home. I always had an at home feel. Every time I went there it felt more and more at home. It would be hard for me to go to a different school.”

Oklahoma has had success with their guards as of late and that played into his decision making as well.

“A lot of schools really develop their guards, so of course that played a factor,” he said. “They developed their guards that’s a plus. I wanted to go to a school that develops their guards. I’m glad I made the choice.”

McGusty, a four-star prospect, is Oklahoma’s second verbal pledge of the 2016 recruiting class. He joins Kristian Doolittle to make up up their current class.
