NORMAN, Okla. — The Oklahoma basketball team got two forms of good news on Sunday.
First, West Plains Junior College guard Terrell Everett committed to the Sooners during his official visit on Sunday, Detroit, Mich. wing and McDonald's All-American Malik Hairston notified Oklahoma that he will take an official visit to Norman on April 23.
Hairston is a 6-foot-6 guard/forward who has narrowed his choices down to UCLA, Michigan, Ohio State, Oklahoma and Kansas, while Everett picked the Sooners over Pittsburgh, Texas, Minnesota, Creighton and St. Bonaventure.
"I loved my visit to OU this weekend I committed to them before I left," said the 6-foot-4 Everett. ""I liked the coaching staff, the players and they made me feel welcome. I think I have a good chance to come in and get some valuable minutes."
Everett, who hails from Charleston, S.C., averaged 19 points, 5.1 assists,, 5.7 rebounds and 3.5 steals per game for West Plains.
"I do a lot of slashing and penetrating and if people help on me I am good at kicking it out and getting open shots," Everet said when asked to describe his game. "I think I have pretty good range shooting the three, but to be honest I like to take the ball to the hole and I get fouled a lot. I have a good mid-range jump shot and I like to drive and then pull up and shoot the shot. I shot 78 percent from the free throw line last year."
