Just days after completing an undefeated boys basketball season by winning the Class 3A state championship with City on Saturday, Knights senior Kamau Stokes has verbally committed to play basketball at Toledo.

The 5-foot-11, 155-pound guard confirmed via Twitter that he planned to play for the Rockets. Stokes, who also won a state championship with Dunbar in 2013, picked Toledo over reported offers from UMBC, Mount St. Mary's, Delaware and other Division I programs.

Stokes transfered to City this academic year and helped make the talented No. 1 Knights the preseason favorite to win the 3A state title. A tenacious defender and effective outside shooter, Stokes scored 13 points in City's 59-48 championship win over Westlake.

"Coming in, I'm just trying to fit in. I want to step in and be a leader to help us win," Stokes said in December. "Almost everybody on our team is capable of making a big play, so it's just a matter of putting it all together."
