OUINSIDER.COM learned late Tuesday evening that Detroit, Mich. guard and McDonald's All-American Malik Hairston informed Oklahoma he would not be a Sooner.
Hairston told Oklahoma that he liked everything about the school and the basketball program and seriously considered them since his visit to Norman two weekends ago.
Sources told OUINSIDER.COM that Hairston said he was down to Ohio State and Michigan, but moments after that report Bucknuts.com reported that the Buckeyes were eliminated and GoBlueWolverine.com is reporting Michigan is out. UCLA was also later eliminated, which leaves the decision to Oregon and Kansas.
The 6-foot-6 guard said Monday that he had made a decision but wouldn't announce it until a 3PM (CST) press conference tomorrow afternoon at his high school in Detroit.
