SHAWNEE, Okla. (AP) - Oklahoma Baptist University in Shawnee is a step closer to becoming a member of NCAA Division II.

The Division II membership committee has recommended OBU’s membership application - which will be reviewed by the NCAA Division II management council during meetings set for July 21 and 22.

OBU begins a process of becoming a full NCAA member as a part of the Great American Conference that includes colleges and universities in Oklahoma and Arkansas. The process takes a minimum of three years to complete.

Oklahoma Baptist will compete during the coming season in the NAIA as a part of the Sooner Athletic Conference.
