Throughout his recruitment, many gave Oklahoma State the edge when it came to landing a signature out of LeBryan Nash. Thursday afternoon, Nash did what many had expected him to do when he committed to Travis Ford's Cowboys on ESPN.
A five-star prospect and the fourth rated prospect nationally in the class of 2011, the 6-foot-7 wing from Dallas (Texas) Lincoln has long been a star.
"I'm going to take my game to Stillwater, Okalhoma to player for Travis Ford," said Nash during the announcement.
Physically dominant in the paint when he needs to be because of his superior strength and athleticism, Nash is no one trick pony. Over the past few summers with Tony Johnson's Dallas Mustangs, Nash has proven that he can shoot the ball from deep and has steadily improved his ball handling.
"LeBryan has a polished skill-set," said Glenn Smith of Metroplex Hoops. "He has the ability to work his defender inside and out.
Nash joins perhaps the nation's top junior-college player, four-star combo forward Karron Johnson, to make up the Cowboys early class.
