High (After)Noon Highlights (3/18): Mike Boynton talks the transfer portal

Welcome to High Noon Highlights, a place to catch up on everything you missed in Oklahoma State Athletics and more!

NCAA Basketball: Big 12 Conference Tournament-Oklahoma State vs Baylor Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

It’s high noon...

Talking the transfer portal with head coach Milke Boynton:

In an interview with KeysToSuccess, Mike Boynton made some interesting points regarding the transfer portal. He talks about why kids need to be careful with their choices the first time and why it matters.

“There’s an unintended consequence to the transfer portal,” Boynton said. “Today on September 30th there are still kids from last year’s transfer cycle in the transfer portal. Because there’s not a new school out there for everybody.”

Boynton gave so excellent advice to kids that are going into college basketball as well. This is something that I think every kid being recruited right now needs to understand.

From one former OSU wide receiver to another:

Tylan Wallace talked to Pro Football Focus ahead of this year’s draft. When asked if there was a receiver that he modeled his game after, Wallace said Dez Bryant. He mentioned that he grew up watching the Cowboys and...

“The way Dez Bryant high-pointed the ball inspired me to play that same way,” Wallace said. {DraftWire}

Dez even responded.

Boynton talks Cade Cunningham in the NBA:

On SiriusXM NBA Radio, Mike Boynton went to bad for his star player Cade Cunningham. Telling the host that whatever your team is needing, Cade Cunningham can be that dude for your team. Minus a center like Shaq.

Cade Cunningham was not impressed with Lloyd Noble:

In an interview with AP, Cade Cunningham was asked to talk about his favorite arenas he’s played in so far. He gives mentions to Kansas, which makes sense I mean Allen Field House is iconic, and Iowa State. He said that he liked how at Kansas they just pack people in. There’s no barrier between the seats and they kind of just pack people in as much as they can. When Baylor’s Jared Butler asked if there was somewhere he didn’t like he said “Oklahoma...Oklahoma’s weak.”

This dude gets it.
