North Farmington's Amauri Hardy chooses Oklahoma State

North Farmington’s Amauri Hardy announced on Friday night that he will be playing for Oklahoma State after finishing up his high school career this winter.

Hardy didn’t see a lot of big offers early in the recruiting process, gaining the attention of bigger schools late in the offseason between his junior and senior year. Hardy received offers from Florida, Georgia and Georgia Tech, along with several others from mid-major schools, but decided to head to Stillwater beginning next year.

As a junior last season, Hardy averaged 21 points, four assists and four rebounds per game as he helped lead North Farmington to its first ever Class A state championship game appearance in school history last season.

A 6-2 combo guard who can play either guard position, but Hardy is likely slated to play point guard at the next level, but is a deadly scorer, able to drive to the basket or knock down shots from the perimeter.

This year, Hardy will be relied upon heavily by the Raiders as they lost several key contributors from last year's team, as North Farmington looks for another deep playoff run.
