Marshall Moses had an up close and personal encounter with what Oklahoma natives know only as bedlam. The 6-foot-8 forward from North Carolina spent the last couple of days at Oklahoma State for an official visit and the four-star prospect could very well be a part of the rivalry series against Oklahoma in the near future.
Sitting behind Sean Sutton and the Oklahoma State bench in the Cowboys' win over Oklahoma on Monday night, Moses had a chance to see the Big 12 school up close and personal for the first time. The Patterson School (N.C.) forward raved about his time in Stillwater.
"I had a lot of fun. I got to hang out with the players and got to see that they are all a bunch of really cool guys," Moses said.
"I had a chance to meet the athletic director and the academic advisors that work with the student athletes. They all seemed so down to earth and like a family. They are real people. That was the part of the visit that I liked the most. The game was nice, don't get me wrong. That place was packed and loud. Overall, it was just a great trip."
Moses liked the trip so much, he admitted he came close to telling Sutton and his staff that he was ready to put on an OSU jersey next year. But instead, Moses will make a much anticipated trip to Kentucky this weekend when the Wildcats play host to Tennessee.
"I'm going to take that visit and see how I feel after that. I was loving Oklahoma State and I almost committed. We'll see how I feel after Kentucky," Moses said.
The SEC school has flirted with Moses for some time now and visits have been set up, cancelled and rescheduled.
"I'm glad to finally get up there. We've had to postpone so many times so it's going to be great to see the campus and the players and the coaches," Moses said. "I'm going to enjoy it."
Moses said he has a tentative visit date set with Kansas State on Feb. 10 but said that visit to Manhattan will probably not happen. Moses said he believes he will know where he wants to go by Tuesday of next week.
