Thomas Dziagwa commits to Oklahoma State

Oklahoma State nabbed an outstanding shooter on Sunday, gaining a commitment from Thomas Dziagwa.

A 6-4 guard from Florida, Thomas Dziagwa has committed to Oklahoma State, a source confirmed to Scout. The Tampa (Fla.) Catholic product wields a feathery jump shot with his elbow nicely tucked in and a flawless follow-through.

He’s also very tall for a combo guard who could slot into either backcourt position in college, although he’s likely to mostly play off the ball. He’ll need to get stronger and ideally improve his quickness, but clearly his primary role at OSU will be to stretch the defense. He chose the Cowboys over South Florida, Stephen F. Austin, Florida Gulf Coast and others.

The close knit culture in Stillwater ultimately proved decisive.

”The biggest thing in my decision was the family aspect,” Dziagwa told Scout. “I’d heard about it but was able to see it first hand. That was big for me.”

He also has a clear vision for his role at OSU.

”I’ll mostly play the shooting guard but also some combo,” Dziagwa said. “They’ve had a lot of success with shooting guards and shoot a lot in transition. I could get the rebound and bring the ball up.”

He added that he spoke regularly to both head coach Travis Ford and assistant James Dickey during the recruiting process.
