Three-star guard commits to Oklahoma State

Associated Press

Oklahoma State landed its first verbal commitment in the Class of 2016 Sunday afternoon, as three-star guard Thomas Dziagwa announced via Twitter that he will be a Cowboy. Dziagwa, a senior at Tampa Catholic (Florida), is regarded as one of the top perimeter shooters in the state.

The 6-foot-4 Dziagwa averaged nearly 27 points per game as a junior, and he played for the Florida Sons on the adidas Gauntlet circuit this summer. Oklahoma State will lose two senior guards at the end of the 2015-16 season in Jeff Newberry and Phil Forte III, with the latter being the Cowboys’ best perimeter shooter.

While Oklahoma State has a host of options on the wing, they don’t have much depth at the guard spots when it comes to the future. Freshman Jawun Evans and sophomore Tyree Griffin are the only guards on the current roster with eligibility remaining beyond the 2015-16 season, so adding another guard was something Oklahoma State needed to do.
