TULSA, Okla. (AP) — A Missouri standout has signed a letter-of-intent to play for the Tulsa men's basketball team.

Golden Hurricane officials announced Monday that Shaquille Harrison is new coach Danny Manning's first recruit to agree to play for Tulsa.

The 6-foot-3, 175-pound Harrison was a three-year letterman and two-year starter at Lee's Summit West High School, where he averaged 17.3 points, seven rebounds, four assists and 3.2 steals as a senior.

He helped his team to a 27-4 record and to the state's Class 5 Final Four, but they lost in the semifinals to McCluer North High School.

Harrison also was the Kansas City Star's Metro Player of the Year in his senior season, and set the single-season record in steals at Lee's Summit West with 100 as a senior.
