Emmanuel Wilson, who starred for Oklahoma Baptist University in men's basketball, signed to play professionally in Germany. The 6-foot-4 guard from Norman North will play for SSV Lok Bernau.

Wilson averaged 17.3 points and helped the Bison to the NAIA Championships final as a senior. He was named NAIA Player of the Year this past season.

As a sophomore in 2010, Wilson helped Oklahoma Baptist win the national championship.

“We were looking for a good shooter who can lead the team on offense and be a danger from the outside,” said Lok Bernau coach Thomas Schonhoff. “After seeing the first videos of Emmanuel, it became clear that Wilson fit that profile very well.”
