Earlier this week Joshua O’Garro verbally committed to play basketball at the University of Oklahoma. With that commitment, O’Garro is on route to making history in becoming the first Caymanian to ever play basketball at the NCAA Division I level in the Big 12 Conference.
O’Garro posted a photo of him wearing a Sooners jersey on his Instagram page Thursday afternoon, with the caption reading; “it’s about that time #committed.”
The 6-foot-4 small forward recently finished his junior season at Santa Clarita High School, in California where his performances ranked him as a four-star recruit according to 247Sports.com.
O’Garro turned down several other universities upon his verbal commitment. That includes Arizona State, Stanford and USC. However, he still needs to sign his National Letter of Intent to attend the school, which would make his enrollment for Oklahoma official.
The plan is for O’Garro is to redshirt this upcoming season. We reached out to O’Garro for a comment, he did not respond before publish time.
