California point guard Cezar Guerrero commits to Oklahoma State

When OU fired coach Jeff Capel Monday, that took one contender out of the picture.

“With Capel going down,” Trigonis said, “it made the decision a little easier.”

Guerrero ranks among the nation's Top 25 point guards and is a three-star prospect by Scout. He was known as a scorer at St. John Bosco.

OSU's point guard position has been in flux. The Cowboys started the season with Fred Gulley as the starter, before he was sidelined by shoulder surgery. Ray Penn followed and has since indicated he'll transfer, opening up a scholarship. Keiton Page has also played significant minutes at the point, after sliding over from the other guard spot, yet was playing out of position.

Lately, sophomore Reger Dowell has emerged as a candidate to compete for major minutes next season.

Include Guerrero in the mix, too.

The release of junior college forward Karron Johnson from his scholarship commitment leaves OSU with one more spot to fill. Ford and his staff are targeting a big man.
