Skills, desire, effort have rewarded Casey Arent, whose scholar/athlete days will continue.

Arent of Sierra College and Del Oro High School has given a verbal commitment to play scholarship basketball at the University of Oklahoma.

A 6-foot-10 center with skills, Arent earned All-State and All-Big 8 Conference honors this past season. He averaged 19.1 points and 11.4 rebounds for coach John Fusano after leading the state in both categories the first half of the season. Arent will play for Lon Kruger at Oklahoma.

Arent also drew considerable recruiting interest from Cal, Washington State and Colorado, among others. He piled on the units this academic year - 19 - in order to obtain his AA degree.

Interestingly, it was a community college All-Star showcase last summer in Tulsa that thrust Arent onto the national radar. He was one of some 125 JC players on hand and he showcased an ability to pass, shoot, run the floor and defend.
