The stocky 5-11, 200-pound senior point guard from Dallas Lincoln (Texas) got it and made a commitment to Eddie Sutton and the Cowboys during a visit to Stillwater this weekend.
``I was going to do it, but I just didn't know when," Eaton said. "I just wanted to make sure my mom and dad liked it."
Eaton said it was more a decision that had to do with immediate dividends rather than the other Texans who had already given Sutton & Co. verbal commitments.
Gerald Green, Roderick Flemings and Terrel Harris – all of the Lone Star State – will join Eaton in the Class of 2005. ``They said I can come right in and play," Eaton added. "I didn't want to go anywhere and sit."
Eaton said he also heavily considered Cincinnati, but didn't wait until his scheduled visit to the Bearcats, which was scheduled for next weekend.
