The Boise State men’s basketball team picked up a verbal commitment from a high-scoring high school guard Wednesday in Norman (Okla.) North High guard Marcus Dickinson.

Dickinson (6-foot-2, 180 pounds), who averaged 20.7 points per game last season and shot 57 percent from the field, announced his commitment on Twitter.

A third-team All-Oklahoma selection, he was teammates with 2017 five-star prospect Trae Young for the 6A state runners-up.

Should Dickinson’s signing become official, the Broncos will have one open scholarship remaining. Also on Wednesday, the team announced the addition of Gillette (Wyo.) College guard Cameron Oluyitan, who committed last week.

Oluyitan (6-6, 185) averaged 14.6 ppg, 5.5 rebounds per game and shot 52.2 percent from the field last season. He will join the team this summer as a true sophomore, with a redshirt year available.

“Cameron is a winner,” Boise State coach Leon Rice said in a statement. “He is a versatile perimeter player who has a knack for putting the ball in the hole. He shoots it very well from three and also has the ability to put it on the floor to make plays for himself and his teammates. He has a very bright future at Boise State.”
