According to OU Insider, Mount Vernon senior Isaiah Cousins has committed to Oklahoma. Coach Bob Cimmino confirmed that Cousins committed this morning.
The 6-foot-4 senior went on an official visit on Monday and was still in Norman, Okla., on his visit when he committed. He is scheduled to fly home this afternoon.
Cousins was named Section 1’s “Mr. Basketball.” He led the Knights to a 23-3 record, including a record seventh straight Section 1 championship and second straight state championship.
Cousins was named the MVP of the Section 1 tournament and was all-tournament in both the state and Federation tournaments.
UConn, Dayton, Xavier and Virginia Tech were the other finalists for Cousins, although he did not visit any of the four schools. Oklahoma was his first official visit.
Head coach Lon Kruger and assistant Lew Hill attended the Class AA championship game at the County Center. They were also at practice last week leading up to Mount Vernon’s appearance in the Federation championship game.
Hill is a Mount Vernon native. He graduated from Mount Vernon High School in 1983 and Wichita State in 1988.
