HOOPS: Co-Player of Year back on OSU radar?


PORTLAND STANDOUT AND the Oregonian's 6A co-player of the year, guard Garrett Sim, requested and was granted a release from his letter of intent to California following coach Ben Braun's dismissal, according to media reports. Where he will ultimately sign remains to be seen but he has been in contact with new Oregon State head man Craig Robinson.

Sim is said to want to stay in the Pac-10 and play on the West Coast. He has already met with Robinson and has a sit down planned for Monday with Oregon.

Robinson looks to have two scholarships to potentially use in this class. That late signing period, which runs through May 21, began yesterday.

Sim led his team to a 24-5 record and third place finish at the 6A State Tournament this past season.

He averaged 23 ppg, 8.8 assists, and 4.2 rebs a game his senior year. In addition to the co-player of the year honor, he was named all-state first team and voted the Metro League's MVP.

Scout.com calls Sim a skilled young guard who could run the point or shooting guard position at the next level.

"Very nice stroke, great feel for the game. Live body and a better athlete than you might think. High major prospect," the evaluation reads in part.

The 6-1, Sunset High product, according to his father, could also still re-sign with Cal, has met with new coach Mike Montgomery, and is also looking at other schools.
