HS star Marcus Smart and Phil Forte commit to OSU
It took more than 18 months of recruiting by Oklahoma State coach Travis Ford, but on Friday, the work paid off.
During their visits to Stillwater, Okla., shooting guards Marcus Smart and Phil Forte -- teammates at Flower Mound (Texas) -- Smart committed to play for the Cowboys.
"Me and Phil, we're going to Oklahoma State," Smart said. "We had a feeling, me and Phil, that we wanted to play together. Then bam, this was the right place for us."
Smart, 6-3 and 200 pounds, is a five-star prospect and the No. 11 overall prospect in the class of 2012, while Forte, 5-10 and 175 pounds, is the No. 46 shooting guard.
