Byron Eaton Schedules Trips

Byron Eaton has four official visits set up and one of them is somewhat surprising. The Lincoln High (Texas) senior point guard still has a leader. Check out who it is.

Byron Eaton played so well this summer that football is now out of the equation. Actually, that's not the real reason why.

``I still want to play both sports in college, but the women that had me won't let me play both," said the stocky Lincoln (Texas) High senior point guard.

The 5-11, 200-pound Eaton (, No. 25) has made no secret that Oklahoma State is the leader – and nothing has changed on that end. He'll visit Eddie Sutton and the Cowboys on Sept. 18, which will come on the heels of official trips to San Diego State (Sept. 4) and LSU (Sept. 11). The other scheduled trip is to Cincinnati on Sept. 25. He'll choose from Arkansas, SMU and Texas A&M for his final trip – if needed.

``It's really always been Oklahoma State and Cincinnati as my leaders," Eaton admitted. "I like the fact that Oklahoma State lets their guys play. They have John Lucas leaving so I can come in and start. I really don't want to go somewhere and sit a year."

``I like Bob Huggins and Cincinnati a lot, but they just got a guard," he added. "That's why Oklahoma State is a little bit ahead."

Eaton made a valid case to be ranked as the top point guard in the nation based on his consistent play this past summer. He had something to prove – and went out there and did it. However, he's not completely satisfied.

``You can always play harder, but I know I can't go back and change it," Eaton said.
