10 Questions: Fred Gulley
Gulley: I think I'm going to have a ceremony right after school is out and everybody is going to come in and I'm going to sign.
Q: What was your deciding factor in committing to the Cowboys?
Gulley: I really felt comfortable with all the coaching staff – Coach Ford, Coach Ferguson, Coach Pierre and Coach Middleton. It just seems like a close-knit family. I also think I have the opportunity to come in and contribute right away, and that really helped influence my decision. It was also close to home but still far enough away that I feel like I'm going away to college. It was just the best situation for me.
Q: What are three words that describe you as a person?
Gulley: Honest. Blunt. Funny.
Q: What are three words that describe you as a basketball player?
Gulley: Competitive. Competitive. Competitive.
Q: What is your favorite thing to do on the basketball court?
Gulley: Besides winning, my favorite thing to do is to give a nice assist.
Q: What's your favorite thing to do off the court?
Gulley: I'm into movies recently, so I'd have to say catch a movie.
Q: If you don't go on to play in the NBA, what would you like to do?
Gulley: I'd like to be a political science major and eventually go to law school.
Q: What are you most looking forward to in terms of playing at Oklahoma State?
Gulley: Definitely the crowd and the fan base. Every time I go up there the crowd and fans are just so supportive and so enthusiastic. They love their basketball in Stillwater.
Q: What do you feel will be your biggest challenge in moving from high school to college?
Gulley: Probably just strength. I'm working with a strength coach right now trying to improve my strength so I can be ready for the constant pounding on the body in college.
Q: Who is the one player on OSU's roster, or in your recruiting class, that you are most excited to be teammates with next season?
Gulley: I would say Roger Franklin because we're both some of the most competitive people you'll ever meet, and we'll do whatever it takes to win.
