Mike Boynton may have just signed his 2019 class last week, but the hustle never stops, and he’s already working on the next class of Cowboys.
That, and news that the coaching staff is still heavily recruiting a 2019 point guard, in today’s Cowboy Basketball recruiting update.
This past week, Boynton spent a good amount of time in the state of Arkansas, offering scholarships to three prospect.
The latest went to class of 2022 (!!!) guard Nick Smith Jr. this week.
It may seem early to offer Smith, a combo guard out of Silvan Hills High School in Arkansas, but the Cowboys are actually his second offer. Oral Roberts extended a scholarship back in September.
While Smith doesn’t have a recruiting page up just yet (it’s still too early), what we have found on him has been promising, including many calling him one of the top players in the state of Arkansas for his class.
He will certainly be one to keep an eye on.
Sticking in Arkansas, Boynton extended an offer to 2021 Shooting Guard Jalen Ricks out of Sherwood, Arkansas.

The Cowboys are the second team to offer Ricks, following TCU back in August. Arkansas is also interested, but has yet to make an offer.
Like Smith, Ricks is considered one of the top prospects in the state of Arkansas in his class.
The final Arkansas recruit to receive an offer went to 2021 guard Terran Williams.
Out of Marianna, Arkansas, Williams also holds an offer from TCU, with Arkansas and Auburn also showing interest.
OSU still showing interest in 2019 point guard
Oklahoma State has already filled its 2019 class, and is one scholarship over capacity. That said, there seems to still be one more recruit in play for Mike Boynton and Co; Dereon Seabron
Seabron, a 2019 point guard prospect from Woodstock, Virginia, recently spoke Corey Evans at Rivals about the Cowboys, saying OSU — along with Providence and Rhode Island — have the programs recruiting him the hardest lately.
“Same as Providence with them (playing fast). They want me to come in and play the combo guard spot, which is the one and two for them. I don’t know much about them but it does intrigue me.”
It’s likely, with Seabron not expected to sign until Spring, that he’s going to see more offers, especially with so many players already signed.
Seabron is listed as a 3-star prospect by Rivals and a 4-star by 247Sports. OSU, Providence, and Rhode Island are three of his 17 offers, along with Minnesota, Georgia, and VCU, among others.
