Oklahoma State's basketball recruiting class continues to take shape.
And already, that shape is large.
The Cowboys picked up their fourth commitment in the class Monday, with Houston wing Joe Burton giving OSU his pledge. The 6-foot-6 Burton, a consensus four-star prospect and Top 100 national recruit, plays at Lutheran North High School.
Known as a talented scorer, Burton joins center Mitch Solomon of Bixby and guard Jared Terrell of New Hampshire as four-star commits with the Cowboys. Junior college point guard Jeff Newberry is also highly regarded.
The early signing period for basketball runs from Nov. 13 to Nov. 20.
Rated as the No. 6 player in Texas, the No. 7 prospect in the region and No. 14 at his position by ESPN, Burton chose the Cowboys over Oklahoma and Oregon and also had offers from Kansas State and Missouri, among others.
ESPN's scouting report: “Burton is a forward with good strength and skill. He has three-point range and gets his share of area rebounds. He can create some matchup problems because he can stretch the defense with his shot making ability, especially when he has a size advantage or when playing the power forward position. Overall this combination forward has good upside.”
