Oklahoma basketball lost its only Class of 2014 commit Monday afternoon when three-star power forward Jacob Hammond (Bel Aire, Kan./Sunrise Christian) said he has decommitted from the program.

Hammond, who is 6-foot-10 and 235 pounds, had been pledged to the Sooners since August and has been pursued by Lon Kruger and rest of the OU coaches since before his sophomore season.

Now other schools from across the country are starting to enter the mix, and Hammond said he wants to make sure he is making the right decision.

“I still like OU, but as of recently, I have had a lot of interest from schools in the Big 12, Pac-12, Big Ten and schools on the West Coast so I want to make sure that I am making the right choices,” Hammond said in a text message.

Hammond maintained a solid relationship with the OU coaches this last season despite transferring from playing in nearby Oklahoma City to Sunrise Christian, just outside of Wichita, Kan.
