Jeff Newberry of New Mexico Junior College is one of the top junior college point guards in the nation. In his latest Player Blog for ZAGSBLOG, the 6-foot-2 Newberry unveils his college choice after narrowing his list to three — Oklahoma State, Texas Tech and UConn — in his last blog.
The wait is finally over.
I have chosen to continue my collegiate career after this last year of Junior College at Oklahoma State University.
I couldn’t be more happy and confident in my decision. Coach [Travis] Ford is a great coach and I can’t wait to get on campus in Stillwater next Fall but first I have to take care of my business in Hobbs, N.M.
We have a great team this year and I’m excited to have this process over with and can now focus on basketball and school.
I love my extended family. Patrice Days, Diamond DeShields, and Myke Malone helped me through this whole process and I love them all. Thank you all who continue to support me even if I didn’t end up where you guys wanted me too.
Proud to be an Oklahoma State Cowboy!!!!
