Corbin Byford picks ORU

10/24/2011

The Tulsa (Okla.) World reported on Sunday that 6-foot-6 small forward Corbin Byford (Velma, Okla.) has ended his recruitment and will suit up for Oral Roberts next year.

Byford is the son of former University of Oklahoma offensive lineman Lyndle Byford. He chose Golden Eagles over South Dakota and Lafayette.

"I like the (ORU) coaching staff, I like the Christian atmosphere of the college, I like the academics and I just thought it was a good fit for me," Byford told the paper.

He joins big man Jorden Kaufman (Andover, Kans.) in ORU's 2012 class.
