After visiting Stillwater, Maurice Calloo decided to make it his next home.

The 6-foot-8 forward out of Huntington Prep committed to Oklahoma State on Thursday after visiting campus, he announced on social media.

“Thank you to all the many different coaches that have recruited me, bt I have an amazing opportunity t play for a great school as well as a great coach,” he wrote. “With that being said, I am committing to coach (Mike) Boynton and Oklahoma State University.”

Calloo, who hails originally from Canada, picked the Cowboys over the likes of Illinois, Mississippi and SMU. He is considered a three-star prospect.

Oklahoma State was the biggest surprise in the Big 12 last season after Brad Underwood jetted for Illinois in his only season with the Cowboys. Expected to be non-competitive in Boynton’s first year at the helm, Oklahoma State 21-15 overall and 8-10 in the Big 12, just narrowly missing a spot in the NCAA tournament.
