Oklahoma State Basketball to host Kentrevious Jones:
Former Xavier signee Kentrevious Jones will come for a visit this weekend. The 6’10’’ post player would be a big addition to Mike Boynton’s team. He could be some help as a big man after the loss of Mitchell Solomon and Yankuba Sima. He’s from Macon, Georgia and was signed with Xavier in 2017. It is reported by 247Sports that he did not qualify academically for Xavier. He’s been at Quality Education Academy in Winston-Salem, North Carolina for the past year.
Samford Basketball Grad Transfer Wyatt Walker Sets Visit to Oklahoma State:
Mike Boynton and company will have another chance at a big man when Wyatt Walker visits. The graduate transfer center out of Samford is 6’9’’ 240. He was injured last year but averaged 12.9 PPG and 9.7 RPG in the 2016-2017 season. He will also have two years of eligiblity due to his medical redshirt last season. With the lack of depth at the position for Oklahoma State moving into this coming season, Walker would be a nice addition.

• NC State (4/13)
