Basketball Recruiting: New ‘20, ‘21, ‘22 Offers

Mike Boynton is looking to ride the recruiting hot hand into the 2020 class and beyond.

4-Star 2020 Point Guard Ty Berry

Berry is from Kansas, and blueblood KU has long been the default favorite for any of the top national players from the state. KU has yet to offer, but in my opinion it’s only a matter of time. If and when that offer does come, it will be a dogfight not dissimilar to the one they’re in for top 2020 Oklahoma talent, Bryce Thompson.

The stud PG also holds offers from Colorado, Creighton, Iowa, Iowa State, Kansas State, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, and Wichita State. Regardless of how high his recruitment escalates, I’m excited to see Boynton willing (and able) to duke it out for top talent like this.

N/R 2020 Forward/Center Jaylin Williams

As a currently unranked prospect, it’s a little harder to find information on Williams, but his big 6’10 frame and growing offer sheet indicate that the high school junior may just be somewhat of a late bloomer. He received an offer during his visit over Homecoming weekend.

N/R 2021 Point Guard Brayon Freeman

It is difficult to project college prospects; even more so when the players haven’t even started their sophomore year of high school. Boynton and co. are showing that they fully understand the advantage of getting onto elite guys early with this and the other ‘21 and ‘22 offers.

Freeman is a crafty guard with room to grow. I’ve found videos from a year ago that state he’s 5’11 and prep profiles listing him as high as 6’2 (but if Boynton was listed at 6’2, based on the visit picture he’s probably closer to 6’0). His physical growth along with his obvious talent on the ball are good indicators for why this offer was made early. Along with the Oklahoma State offer he picked up during his visit, Freeman holds offers from George Washington, Wyoming, and UMass. I expect this offer sheet to grow substantially before his recruitment is done.

N/R 2022 Guard Cason Wallace

The Cowboys continue to hit the DFW area heavily due to its preponderance of talent. However, this offer to the Richardson, TX native is interesting beyond locale. Wallace’s cousin and trainer is former OSU standout Terrell Harris. This connection could prove to be invaluable as his recruitment moves on.

Wallace (as a freshman!!) holds offers from OSU, TCU, A&M, and DePaul. In addition to already having good size for a guard at around 6’2 with room to grow, doing stuff like this for a national audience tends to draw attention:

N/R 2022 Wing Colin Smith

As early as it is to offer 2022 prospects, OSU’s offer earlier in the week was not even close to the first program to offer Smith. He already holds major offers from Kansas, Baylor, Georgetown, and TCU. Smith is currently projected as a wing at 6’6, but with the potential for additional size he could end up playing more of a forward role at the next level. At this point, it’s safe to say Boynton is just trying to get in early on elite talent.

If there were any concerns that Coach Boynton was going to take some time off after putting together a trajectory-shifting class for 2019, it’s safe to say they have quickly been put to rest. #c2e
