Grad Transfer Smith Commits to OSU on Visit

Oklahoma State gets another important point guard transfer and this one is a fifth-year graduate transfer and eligible immediately.

Cal-State Northridge graduate transfer point guard Kendall Smith wasted no time and on the first day of his official visit, the only one he was currently scheduled to take, he committed to Oklahoma State. The former Top100 basketball recruit out of high school in Antioch, Calf., Smith will be eligible immediately to play for the Cowboys and new head coach Mike Boynton. Boynton has been tearing up the transfer market as he also secured the transfer of former Kansas All-State and MAC Freshman of the Year Michael Weathers from Miami of Ohio where he played for newly hired Cowboy assistant John Cooper.

The message on his Twitter account @Ken2Smoove was subtle, "It's official.. I mean WHY NOT??" There were also confirmations on his Twitter account retweeted from national college basketball recruiting sources.

Smith had previously cancelled a scheduled visit to Colorado. The a 6-3 190 pound guard, was a top 100 players out of high school at Deer Valley (Antioch, CA) who originally played for UNLV before transferring to Cal State Northridge for his junior and senior seasons. He averaged 16.7 points and 4.8 assists last year. 

His being able to play immediately gives Oklahoma State three viable options at point guard after Jawun Evans turned pro early and declared for the NBA Draft. Back-up point guard Brandon Averette returns off a solid freshman season and there is standout incoming freshman Zack Dawson from Miami, Fla., and now the immediate addition on Smith.
