Lon Kruger and the Oklahoma Sooners have received a commitment from junior college forward Ty Lazenby. The Glencoe (Okla.) native averaged 22.9 PPG at Northern Oklahoma College-Enid last season and was named an NJCAA All-American.

Oklahoma has suffered a bit of attrition this offseason, as both Dante Buford and Darrion Strong-Moore have announced transfers in recent weeks. And while those decisions are far from disastrous for OU, it’s important to fill those open scholarships with quality talent. The Sooners recently missed out on one opportunity, as Rice grad transfer Egor Koulechov chose the Florida Gators over OU.

Luckily, Oklahoma has found a guy who will compliment the current roster nicely. Lazenby is a really nice outside shooter, and he should have plenty of open looks considering the firepower Oklahoma will have in 2017-18.

Lazenby, who was a three-time state champion at Glencoe, wasn’t heavily recruited out of high school. That, of course, has changed in recent months, as he’s received offers from multiple power-conference programs. He visited Penn State earlier in the week and was expected to visit Utah next week, but his trip to Norman was good enough to seal the deal.
