Brown Is Big 12 Bound

Markel Brown, a 2010 wing out of Louisiana, made a visit last weekend and a commitment came as a result of it.

There's nothing like a good old-fashioned team camp performance to push a commitment through. Markel Brown, a 6-foot-4 wing out of Alexandria (La.) Peabody was strong at Oklahoma State's team camp last weekend and they didn't let him off campus without a commitment.

"The last game, we played one 20 minute half and had like 18 points and five dunks," Brown said. "I think I played pretty good."

The Cowboys offered him in advance of camp but his play last weekend cemented their affection for him and his for them. "I like their style of play," Brown said. "It's transition, push the ball up and down; kinda run and gun."

Little Rock, Louisiana-Monroe and Louisiana Tech offered the 28-point per game scorer but the Cowboys moved quickly and scored the out of state prospect.
