Oklahoma State adds point guard

THE RIVALS150: Class of 2014 - Class of 2015

Say this about Oklahoma State, they had all of their bases covered when it came to landing a class of 2014 floor general.

Just a day after losing out on five-star senior JaQuan Lyle to Oregon, Travis Ford and his staff bounced back landing Tyree Griffin.

A three-star prospect from New Orleans (La.) Landry-Walker, Griffin is a case of the Cowboys keeping their ears to the ground and landing a player who had a very successful senior season.

Originally committed to UTEP, Griffin never publicly cut the Miners loose but he did elect to not sign in the early period and leave things open. As a senior, he led his school to a class 4A state title.

Standing only 5-foot-9, Griffin isn't the biggest guard around but he is strongly built, has outstanding quickness and is athletic. Because of his quickness, Griffin is a pest on the ball and he plays with a take no prisoners attitude. He's also heading to a program that has never been afraid to put small guards on the floor and give them the freedom to make plays.

Griffin is expected to sign in the late signing period that begins April 16. He gives the Cowboys five commitments and joins a class that includes four-star high schoolers Mitchell Solomon, Jared Terrell and Joe Burton along with three-star junior college guard Jeff Newberry.
