Atlanta's Tekele Cotton commits to Wichita State basketball

Atlanta guard Tekele Cotton has given Wichita State's men's basketball team an oral commitment.

Cotton, 6-foot-3, was selected to the All-Metro team by the Atlanta Tipoff Club. He was also named honorable mention Class A in Georgia.

"He is extremely physical on both ends of the court," Whitefield Academy coach Tyrone Johnson said. "He is a tremendous ball defender and gets to the basket."

Johnson said Cotton averaged around 15 points, seven rebounds and four assists as a junior.

Cotton visited WSU earlier this month. He also considered Murray State, Middle Tennessee State, Morehead State, Northeastern and others.
