Stillwater-AP) -- Oklahoma State's future head basketball coach, Sean Sutton, wants to win a national title, and to get there, he's working to recruit top-notch players.

Since April, O-S-U has won the hearts of Terrel Harris, Gerald Green and JamesOn Curry.

For a long time, O-S-U has relied less on high school recruits and more on junior college recruits, other transfers and undetected diamonds.

Only two high school recruits -- Ivan McFarlin and Terrence Crawford -- were in the nine-man rotation for the Final Four last season.

Sutton has vowed to do better in recruiting, and he says he wants to move the team to the next level.

He says the Final Four, an excellent basketball arena and O-S-U's style of play will all help corral great players.
