Oklahoma State men’s basketball coach Mike Boynton continued his work on the recruiting trail by extending offers to three recruits during the last several days.
Let’s take a look at who has received an OSU offer.
Jalen Lake (Waxahachie, Texas)
I followed Lake and Waxahachie a lot last season and they were my favorite team to watch, along with Richardson. Lake’s teammate, C.J. Noland, also has an OSU offer and I would love to see them come to OSU.
Lake (6-3) is a three-star recruit by rivals.com that could could be ranked higher. He’s an efficient scorer and can score from anywhere on the court. I love his game and think he will be a great college player.
Noland and Lake complemented each other well last season. Waxahachie made it to the third round of the playoffs before being ousted by a Richardson squad that features two of the best rising juniors in the state in Rylan Griffen and Cason Wallace, both of whom also have OSU offers.
Issac Traudt (Grand Island, Nebraska)
Boynton is looking to bolster the forward talent on his roster by extending an offer to power forward Issac Traudt. The 6-foot-9 big man is currently listed as a three-star recruit by rivals.com. Creighton, Kansas State and Nebraska have also extended offers to him. He’s heading into his junior season and has plenty of time to decide where he wants to play.
Malik Presley (San Marcos, Texas)
Presley is not a well known name, and not easy to find much information on since he’ll be a sophomore this year. There aren’t recruiting rankings out for the class of 2023 yet, but he would be a good bet to be in them when they do come out.
OSU fans should be thankful Boynton got in on him early, and hope it makes a lasting impact down the road. Presley runs with Lonestar United on the AAU circuit and recently dropped 29 and 26 points in separate games at a tournament. He’s listed at 6-6 though he could grow to be even taller.
