Oklahoma State basketball: 3 high school recruits to keep an eye on

The Cowboys still have two scholarships to fill for 2019.

Oklahoma State still has two open scholarships to fill for 2019 after head coach Mike Boynton dismissed three players from the program midway through the season.

We’ve already looked at the JUCO prospects OSU has offered and targeting. Let’s take a look at the four-year high school recruits.

Three-Star Ronnie DeGray III

One of OSU’s latest offers is the three-star power forward from Parker, Colorado.

Along with OSU, DeGray has offers from Arkansas, Denver, UTSA, Montana and South Dakota.

DeGray is a late riser, but rated as the No. 3 overall prospect in Colorado. After a senior season where he led Chaparral High in scoring, the 6-foot-8 wing/forward has been putting up 15.7 points and 5.7 rebounds a game for prep school the Woodstock Academy in Woodstock, Conn.

DeGray has thus far given no inclination as to where he’s leaning, OSU looks to be making a strong push.

Three-Star Power Forward Bryce Okpoh

OSU offered The Colony’s top 2019 prospect more than a year ago.

Along with OSU, Okpoh has offers from DePaul, Utah State, Austin Peay, Western Michigan, UT-Arlington, Cal State Northridge and North Texas

One thing to note is Okpoh was offered by the Cowboys back in July 2017. At this point, it’s not known if OSU is still interested. That said, a check of Okpoh’s Twitter account shows Boynton, Isaac Likekele and Avery Anderson still follow him, and Okpoh has retweeted Likekele recently.

Three-Star Point Guard Joshua Pierre-Louis

The New Jersey point guard announced on Twitter on Friday that he was reopening his recruitment after UNLV fired head coach Marvin Menzies.

OSU was in the final three for 6-foot-3 point guard, along with UNLV and Georgia, before he chose the Runnin’ Rebels.

At the time of the UNLV commitment, Pierre-Louis had 19 offers, including from Mississippi State, Xavier and Rutgers, among others.

It will be interesting to see if Boynton reaches back out to renew the relationship with Pierre-Louis now that he’s available again.

With just one true point guard on the roster in Likekele, adding the 46th-ranked point guard in the 2019 class would be good. While 2019 signee Avery Anderson can run the point, it would benefit the Cowboys to add another ball handler to the team.
