"I thought about it a lot and I thought about every situation (involving the colleges that were recruiting me). Oklahoma was one of my top schools and I was being recruited by coach (Jeff) Capel and after he got fired I immediately crossed them off the board," said the 6-0, 170-pound point guard from St. John Bosco High School in Bellflower, Calif.
"I'm relieved and excited and overwhelmed," said Guerrero, who averaged nearly 28 points a game as a senior. "It feels like the weight of the world has been lifted off my shoulders. I'm just happy now. I'm a Cowboy.
"I just feel that Oklahoma State is just the right fit. Great coach and everything about it is great – facilities, people, just everything about it was great. I'm looking forward to being a Cowboy."
Guerrero joins the 6-6, 210-pound Nash as the only members of Oklahoma State's Class of 2011, although the Cowboys are still looking to sign at least one more player.
"That's really a big deal," Guerrero said of joining Nash at OSU. "With the rest of the guys already coming back, that makes us a real good team."
What set Oklahoma State apart from Iowa and Oklahoma, the other finalists? "I would have to say the people, the players, the coaches. I saw a good connection with these guys (when I made my official visit). These guys are like a family from what I saw ... Keiton (Page), Marshall Moses and then Michael Cobbins, and I would think LeBryan will be the same way."
Guerrero was modest in talking about his expectations next season as a freshman. "To get bigger and to get stronger, and to be the best player I can be on the court and be a better leader. I'm going to work my hardest to try to get a starting position and lead the Cowboys to some wins."
