At the University of Oklahoma

Despite being scouted across the U.S., Tisdale chose to attend and play for the University of Oklahoma (OU) along with his brother William. Tisdale played three seasons with the Sooners from 1981 to 1985, during which he set 17 records at OU and nine records at the Big Eight Conference, as well as led the team to multiple victories, including back-to-back Big Eight championships and the NCAA Elite Eight tournament.

Known for his left-handed jump-shot, Tisdale scored 2,661 points over three seasons. To this day, he holds OU's records for most career rebounds, field goals, free throws, and free throw attempts.

"Booker T. Washington outstanding cager Wayman Tisdale said recently in a press conference, that he would sign a letter of intent with the University of Oklahoma.

Tisdale had been sought after by some 200 colleges, which were narrowed down to Tulsa University and OU, after being heavily recruited by some thirty coaches."
