Oklahoma basketball coach Lon Kruger picked up three signees on Wednesday:

Edmond Memorial’s Jordan Woodard: Woodard averaged 13.1 points, 4.7 assists, 4.1 rebounds and 2.4 steals as a junior at Edmond Memorial High School. Woodard’s older brother, James, who was The Oklahoman’s 2011-12 Big All-City player of the year, is now a freshman at Tulsa.

Jordan Woodard says he’ll have a busy basketball season this year:  “The coaches at OU call me when they have a game coming up and ask me if I can make it,” Woodard said. “If my schedule allows me, I’ll make it every time I can. I’m trying to balance it with going to Tulsa to watch my brother play.”

According to The Associated Press, Kruger called Woodard, “a point guard that’s terrific at running his team and can become a big-time scorer as well.”
