The news broke earlier today that 4 star power-forward JT Thor has trimmed his list of schools down to 3. Auburn, UCLA, and Oklahoma State.
The good news for OSU fans is that the Cowboys have reportedly “picked up some steam” in the hunt for Thor over the last few days. That article was published early this morning, followed later in the day by this post:

We’ve all been following the recruitment process of the 6-8 forward fairly closely, though it seemed the interest had faded from Thor’s camp. Most were confident he would sign with the Pokes, pending the acquisition of the recently crowned Naismith high school player of the year Cade Cunningham.
But after Cade signed, nothing happened, which began to plant seeds of doubt in my mind, and others as well I’m sure, that Thor was set on coming to Stillwater. As time went on, we had really no guess as to where he would play his college ball, if he would reclassify again to 2021, or if he would skip college altogether and go the professional route.
Now, three schools have a shot at landing him, with no determined favorite. Call me a homer, but with nothing else really to go off of than those words from Rival’s Corey Evans this morning, my prediction is he ends up in Cowboy orange at the end of this journey.
