Kingfisher's Matthew Stone, Bijan Cortes pick up offers from Tulsa

Tulsa is working early to develop a relationship with two of Kingfisher's growing stars.

The Golden Hurricane offered Matthew Stone and Bijan Cortes this weekend, both standout sophomores who helped Kingfisher to a Class 4A title this season. 

Stone, a 6-foot-3 guard, averaged 13.2 points per contest. Cortes added about 11 points and five assists per game. 

Tulsa is the first Division I offer for Stone while Cortes picked up an offer from Oral Roberts earlier in the weekend. Stone plays on the wing while Cortes leads the offense, though both affect the game tremendously on defense.

Kingfisher's only loss this season came to Class 6A state champion Tulsa Booker T. Washington. It glided through the Class 4A state tournament, knocking off previously unbeaten Heritage Hall to avenge a loss in the state title game to the Chargers last season.
