Word from California Wednesday told of what an emotional time it was for Cezar Guerrero, the prep point guard who signed with Oklahoma State on the first day of the early signing period. During a ceremony at his school, St. John Bosco, Guerrero fought back tears several times while realizing his dream of playing “big-time college basketball.”
It wasn’t all about Guerrero, either, as he thanked his coaches and teammates and his mother and a lot of other folks for all their support. He told his teammates he loved them and at one point, tears were flowing throughout the room.
Guerrero’s emotional speech, as well as a story on his big day can be found at this Los Angeles news site.
I talked to Guerrero, who goes by C.J., on Tuesday and he was excited about becoming a Cowboy.
“I’m looking forward to being there, experiencing new things and playing basketball in a big conference,” he said. “I want to meet new people and start a new life, a college life.”
Guerrero said he realizes he’ll be a long way from home in Stillwater, in terms of miles and culture. But he said he’s looking forward to that, too.
