Some Guys Oklahoma State Needs To Make A Push For

With a new coach, there's going to be some new recruits.

Brad Underwood has already mentioned the type of offense he will be trying to run next year in his first with Oklahoma State. He's been able to keep most of the players from last years squad, so far and he's also started a spark from the fan base.

The only thing he hasn't done is grab a recruit. Yet. It's not going to happen quick though. But there is a need to grab a few guys. Here's a few recruits the Cowboys should be looking into before signing day.

Jordy Tshimanga

A three-star senior center from Massachusetts, Tshimanga already holds an offer from OSU. He's the No.25 center according to ESPN and stands at 6-10. The scouting report says he's a big bodied defender that also has developed quite the mid-range shot. His ability to move around and even be an offensive threat should be enough to catch Underwood's eye.

Alpha Diallo

Diallo is a four-star forward from Colorado who holds offers from teams like Miami, Indiana and Florida. ESPN says he's got good slashing ability and has the body size at 6-7 to really make an impact at some point in his career. However, it's his perimeter shot that needs some work. Thankfully for OSU, they've got plenty of guys who like to and can shoot the three. He could be that inside presence the Pokes need.

Tyson Jolly

He's already got a few guards that should be very good in Evans and Forte, but adding this Oklahoma City native would be huge. Jolly, who recently left his commitment to California and was actually visited by coach Underwood recently according to reports. Jolly isn't going to wow you with his three-ball all the time, but he's going to work on the tough shots down low, again, something OSU desperately needs. He may not be a starter right away, but him and Forte could certainly split minutes. Which, if you remember, is when Forte is at his best anyway.
