Mike Boynton, just over a month into his first offseason as the Oklahoma State head basketball coach, keeps making waves on the recruiting trail.

With the recent additions of Michael Weathers and grad-transfer Kendall Smith, not only is Boynton bringing in some key transfer talent, but he’s also been hard at work in the prep circuit.

This weekend alone, Boynton and Co. offered three up-and-coming prospects, one of which in the 2018 class.

David McCormack, Oak Hill Academy (2018)

2018 four-star big man David McCormack nabbed an offer from Oklahoma State over the weekend. McCormack is a physical presence at 6’9”, 290 pounds. A native of Norfolk, Va., McCormack currently plays at the renowned Oak Hill Prep Academy. Any time OSU is in on some recruits from Oak Hill, it’s a good thing.

This latest offer makes it clear that Boynton is using his connections on the east coast to recruit some big-time talent.

247Sports.com currently has McCormack as a favorite to land at Georgetown. Check out his full player profile here. Check out his Top Five plays from the 2016-17 season:

Eric Dixon, Abington High School, Abington, Pa. (2019)

The Cowboys offered Eric Dixon, a 2019 Small Forward prospect out of Abington, Pa. Dixon is a physically impressive presence, standing at 6’7”, 215 pounds. He just wrapped up his sophomore year at Abington, and will have two years to grow into his frame.

According to PennLive.com, Dixon currently holds offers from Drexel and St. Joseph’s, but has received interest from Maryland, Temple, Wake Forest, and Stanford. At this rate, expect Dixon to be a highly-touted prospect when he reaches his senior year in 2019. Check out his highlights below.

C.J. Walker, Orlando Christian Prep. (2019)

An offer was extended to another fast-rising prospect in C.J. Walker. Walker is a 2019 recruit with impressive potential, already standing at 6’7”, 180 pounds. His offer sheet is already outstanding, with offers from Florida, Georgia Tech, Louisville, Iowa State and more.

Walker plays small forward, but it athletic enough to handle the ball. His frame and athleticism make him an interesting prospect for Oklahoma State, but I’d say it’s a long shot to land him given his current trajectory.

Boynton, however, has a track record of getting high-level talent to not-quite-elite programs. He was instrumental in getting four-star Sendarius Thornwell and McDonald’s All-American P.J. Dozier to South Carolina.

A lot remains to be seen about Boynton, but his work on the recruiting trail is enough to get me excited about the future of Cowboy Basketball in April. That’s saying something.
