JUCO Point Guard Jeff Newberry Signs Letter Of Intent

Jeff Newberry

Cowboy recruit Jeff Newberry has officially signed his letter of intent to Oklahoma State.

After giving his verbal commitment to Oklahoma State in September, the top junior college point guard in the country Jeff Newberry has made his intention to be a Cowboy official, signing his letter of intent to OSU earlier today.

"I couldn't be anymore excited," Newberry said of getting one step closer to Stillwater. "I'm anxious to play at that level but I have a lot left that I want to prove on the JUCO circuit first."

Newberry is currently playing for the Thunderbirds of New Mexico Junior College and has led his team to a 6-1 start to the season. Newberry is coming off of a 31 point, seven assist and four steal performance against previously undefeated Odessa College on Tuesday. Newberry said he sensed when he needed to step up to get his team the victory and aimed to strike a balance between being smart and aggressive down the stretch. As his 15 free throw attempts indicate, he found that balance.

Newberry currently leads his team in points, assists, steals and free throw attempts on the season.

After Oklahoma State's current star point guard set the school steals record with nine thefts against Utah Valley last night, Newberry joked on Twitter that Marcus Smart is making it hard for him to do anything when he gets here.

While Smart is certainly setting the bar high, Newberry is poised to give the Pokes a dynamic and explosive scoring threat from the point guard position next season. With freshman Stevie Clark looking like a solid passing point guard and coach Travis Ford showing that he's willing to play two point guards at once, Oklahoma State has the makings of what should be one of the most electric backcourts in the country next season.
