Although he can’t physically hit the recruiting trail, that hasn’t stopped Oklahoma State coach Mike Boynton from looking ahead to the future. Boynton’s staff extended an offer to five-star recruit Harrison Ingram on Wednesday.
Extremely excited to say I have received an offer from @thacoachmike and the rest of the staff at Oklahoma State University!! #GoPokes pic.twitter.com/YmHlpiXxWf— Harrison Ingram (@Harrisoniingram) April 8, 2020
Ingram hails from Dallas, Texas, and plays for St. Marks. He doesn’t face the same competition at the TAAPS level as he would see at a public school in the UIL, but he has faced plenty of talented players across his prep career. He faced fellow five-star recruit Jalen Green and Prolific Prep at the Thanksgiving Hoopfest in Dallas.
Ingram strung together five triple-doubles in a row at one point during his junior season and saw his recruitment explode. The 6-foot-7 forward is ranked 13th in the nation by 247sports.com and boasts more than 20 offers.
Ingram will likely receive many more offers before he’s ready to make a decision and OSU already has plenty of competition from other programs. It wouldn’t be the first time Boynton has landed a highly rated recruit out of the metroplex though. Arlington native Cade Cunningham signed with the Cowboys in his senior season. If Cunningham and the Cowboys have a successful season next year, it could be the nudge Ingram needs to choose OSU.
Ingram takes on TCU signee Mike Miles and the No. 1-ranked 5A team in Texas, the Lancaster Tigers.
