Austin Grandstaff has said he wouldn't rush the recruiting process. At the same time, he said he wouldn't wait if things felt right.
On Sunday night, after an unofficial visit to Oklahoma State, things felt right for the 6-foot-4 combo guard from Plano (Texas) West. So, the four-star prospect from the class of 2015 ended his recruitment and committed to Travis Ford.
"I always told myself when the time was right I would commit," Grandstaff told Rivals.com. "I came down to Oklahoma State and everything felt right. The coaches, the players and the facilities were just right for me.
"I didn't expect to commit. I just fell in love with the school when I came down here."
No. 46 in the class of 2015, Grandstaff has had a big spring and is likely due a bump when the 2015 rankings get adjusted later this week.
He is an aggressive offensive player with range who can shoot off the catch. He's also worked hard to become a creator off the dribble and OSU's open offense played a big part in his commitment.
"That was probably the biggest part," he said. "They shoot a lot of 3s and he spaces the floor out and lets the guards go. I've been working a lot on my quickness for the next level and it's a perfect fit. It's four hours away from away from home as well, so my parents can come watch me."
That quickness and explosiveness are things that Grandstaff will continue to work on. He's also working on being more consistent.
"Just my explosiveness and my strength," said Grandstaff when asked what he'll focus on for college. "Also becoming more consistent because sometimes I am inconsistent.
"That's just hours in the gym and this summer I've been spending countless hours in the gym and I can see it coming a little more and a little more. I think by the time I get there I'll be consistent."
Grandstaff will continue to tour the grassroots circuit with Team Texas Elite and he's slated to stop at the LeBron James Skills Academy in Vegas during July. Most of all, he's excited to have the process over with.
'It was already starting to get annoying, I can't imagine what Julius Randle and Andrew Wiggins went through," said Grandstaff. "It relieves a lot of stress. I can just go out and play and not worry about playing well or my top five or twitter. I can just go out and focus on getting better now."
