Stargell Makes His Choice

Quality Education's point guard, Stargell Love, made his choice. He'll be playing his basketball in the Big 12.

You can cross another point guard off the availables list.

Stargell Love, a senior at Winston Salem (N.C.) Quality Education, committed to the Baylor Bears Friday afternoon. Baylor, Marquette, Mississippi State and UNC-Greensboro had offered the Lumberton native a scholarship.

Known for his athleticism, Love is a two-year starter at Quality Education and was one of the top point guards left on the board from the early signing period.

"I like Baylor because it's a small private school and their style of play fits me perfectly," Love said. "I grew up in a small town and Waco's small but it's by the big cities. I just felt like it was time."

Love is averaging 19.5 points and 8 assists on the year.

He'll visit the school officially in January. One thing remained consistent with Baylor from Love's perspective and that always hit home with him.

"When I talked to Baylor they always said I was their No. 1 guy. They gave me all the love that I wanted and needed to know that it was the school for me."
