Gary Payton II will be carrying on the family legacy at his father's alma mater.
Payton II has committed to play basketball for Oregon State next season. Payton II will be following his dad's footsteps, Gary Payton, and try to get the program back to the NCAA tournament, somewhere the team hasn't been to since the elder Payton left Corvallis.
Payton II will sign the letter of intent at the family home in Las Vegas.
"I just felt like this was the best situation for me right now," Payton II said. "It's just a real business decision, too, knowing it's the same alma mater as my dad."
Payton II, known as "The Mitten" will have two years of eligibility left when he arrives.
