German prospect Benjamin Schroder commits to Oklahoma

German prospect Benjamin Schroder will play next fall at Oklahoma, he announced Wednesday on ESPN.A 6-foot-7 forward, Schroder said he had opportunities to play professionally in Germany and Spain but that his target always was playing college basketball in the United States.”I want to be the best basketball player I can become, while having as much fun as possible,” he told ESPN. “The U.S. plays a different style of basketball and will give me a chance to work with the best coaches, facilities and physical programs in the world.
