ROSE HAMMOND, G, 5'8 DePEW, OKLAHOMA:
JH: When did you officially commit?
RH: "It was March 22nd, which was last Tuesday. I went up there and I felt really comfortable with them. I love their coaching staff and how they play. Growing up, I have always wanted to play with the Sooners. I just love the way they play."
JH: Have you always been an Oklahoma lean?
RH: "Yeah, actually I have. My family knew that, but I didn't talk about it much."
JH: What kind of year did you have last season?
RH: "I averaged 20 points, five rebounds, three assists and three steals per game. I have been playing point guard, but I would like to play shooting guard in college. I am not sure where I will play at OU, but I think it will be a two or three."
JH: How would you describe your game?
RH: "I like to drive and get to the hole. I am a slasher I guess, but I am working on my outside game."
JH: You will be coming in a year after the Paris twins, so what are your thoughts on playing with them?
RH: "I am very excited to play with them. I haven't had a chance to talk to them yet, but I sat next to them at the Texas game. I didn't get a chance to talk to them, but I am looking forward to meeting them."
JH: You must feel the program is in very good shape?
RH: "I think the program is in very good shape and only going to get better."
