It didn't take long for Bobby Maze to make a decision about his future. After taking an official visit to Oklahoma, the 6-foot-1, 180-pound point guard from Patterson Prep School has given a commitment to Jeff Capel and the Sooners. Maze, a three-star prospect, had originally planned to officially visit Wake Forest, but that visit will no longer take place.
"I just felt like I had to get it done," said Maze. "When I looked at everything, Oklahoma was just the right situation for me. I've got my boy Tony Crocker coming to Oklahoma with me, so we are going to show people what we're all about."
Maze, the No. 135 ranked player in the class of 2006, was going to take an official visit to Wake Forest on May 23. He was hoping to get another look at one final high-major program before making a final decision.
However, after recently returning home from his visit to Oklahoma, Maze has decided to cancel his final visit.
The opportunity to step-in and be an immediate impact type player is something that Maze refused to turndown. With hard work and practice, the three-star prospect will be given the chance to shine from day one.
"I was going to visit Wake Forest on Tuesday, but there is just more playing time for me at Oklahoma," said Maze. "When I looked at everything, I have a chance to play 30 minutes a game at Oklahoma. I would probably have to split time with somebody at Wake Forest.
"I didn't really want to do that," he added. "I have a chance to be the point guard at Oklahoma from start to finish."
