Former Oklahoma State Forward Woody Newton Commits to George Mason

Newton is headed a lot closer to home.

Another former Oklahoma State basketball player has found a new home.

Woody Newton committed to George Mason on Friday, according to multiple reports. Newton, listed at 6-foot-9, played in 29 games for the Cowboys this past season, making 13 starts. He averaged 4.3 points and 3.4 rebounds a game.

Newton came to OSU from Syracuse. This being his second transfer, Newton would need a waiver to be immediately eligible next season. He still has a redshirt year available should it come to that, but with him moving to Virginia, he might receive a waiver for being closer to his home of District Heights, Maryland — about an hour drive away.

He becomes the fourth former Cowboy to find a landing spot, joining Avery Anderson (TCU), Kalib Boone (UNLV) and Tyreek Smith (SMU). The only OSU player in the portal who hasn’t found a new school yet is Moussa Cisse.

OSU coach Mike Boynton still has three scholarships at his disposal to try to recoup what he has lost in the portal. The Cowboys did secure a commitment from East Carolina point guard Javon Small earlier this month. OSU also has the No. 10 recruiting class in the country. That class includes four high school prospects who are listed as a four-star recruit by at least one of the major services in Brandon Garrison, Eric Dailey Jr., Justin McBride and Jamyron Keller.
