Cowboy Basketball signs Duncan Demuth
Oklahoma State basketball coach Mike Boynton added the services of versatile 6-8 forward Duncan Demuth, who signed a National Letter of Intent with the Cowboys.
One of Florida’s fastest rising recruits, FloridaHoops.com named Demuth the No. 28 player in the state following a junior season that earned him a Tampa Bay Times' All-Pinellas County first team selection. The newspaper also made him a member of the All-Tampa Bay team.
“We’re very excited about Duncan because he’s extremely versatile from a basketball standpoint, and he has a tremendous work ethic,” Boynton said. “Duncan is a do-it-all type player, and he has a terrific upside in terms of his ability to develop his offensive game. I love that Duncan has strong fundamentals, and he’s a guy who can be a versatile defender for us. He can guard the perimeter as well as the rim because of his length and athleticism. Best of all, Duncan is driven to be the best that he can be.”
247Sports.com named Demuth the No. 32 player in the state of Florida and the nation’s No. 67 power forward, and listed the Seminole High School standout as a three-star recruit.
He signed with the Cowboys after also receiving scholarship offers from Florida State, Iowa State, South Carolina, UMass, South Florida, Princeton and others. He plays his AAU ball with SEBA Select.
Demuth joins Yor Anei as 2018 Cowboy basketball signees. A 6-11 forward, Anei was listed by 247Sports.com as the No. 1 player in Kansas following his junior season.
The Cowboys return to the court tonight to take on Charlotte. Tipoff from Gallagher-Iba Arena is slated for 7 p.m. on Fox Sports-Plus.
