Oklahoma, Fordham Land Players

Fordham University and Oklahoma both recently accepted commitments from prospects. Read about each program's latest recruit.

Detroit's Renaissance High School has been a particularly busy stomping ground for college recruiters this season. On Monday, the school yielded its third Division I prospect of the year. Marcus Stout, a 6-3 combo guard, committed to the program after reviewing offers from Wright State and Norfolk State.

"They had good people and it's a real good academic school," Stout said. "I felt the program was on the rise and it felt like it was the right place for me to be."

Last season, Stout averaged 14 points a game for the 2004 state champions. At Fordham, he'll log minutes at both guard slots.

"They told me that they wanted to play me at both guard positions and interchange between the one and the two. I don't prefer one over the other. I like both so I like to change up."

Over the weekend in Norman, Okla., the Sooners were working over swingman Terrell Everett. The 6-4 West Plains Junior College product committed to the team after visiting campus.

Last season, Everett averaged 19 points and 5 rebounds. He had received interest from Pittsburgh, Texas, Minnesota, Creighton and St. Bonaventure.

Everett, an original member of the high school Class of 2002, he played his high school ball at Ashley Hall in Charleston, S.C., and was an AAU teammate of Raymond Felton on the highly successful Beach Ball Select squad.

"It was my favorite the whole time," Everett said. "Some teams like Pittsburgh jumped in at the end but Oklahoma was the favorite the whole way through."
