Matt Carlino, 6’2 175 pound G from Brigham Young University (ESPN, BYU)

Carlino, a three-year starter and team captain at BYU is transferring out of Provo and will be eligible immediately. He averaged 13.7 ppg 3.4 rpg and 4.3 apg at BYU last season.

Carlino helped lead the Cougars to the NCAA tournament two of the last three seasons. Carlino is a fiery player. I’ve watched him play a few times and his defense always stood out to me, along with his streaky shooting.

He’d bring some much-needed experience to a very young 2014-2015 Oklahoma State backcourt.

He’s hearing from some big time programs.

Good stuff here from a BYU blogger. “He is flashy, he is fast, he is unpredictable, and he most certainly makes it rain (from time to time). He is Matty Basketball, and I will miss him” (VTF)

He showed off his offensive prowess in February when he made 8 threes and tallied 30 points against Portland.

MJ Rhett, 6’8 238 pound PF from Tennessee State (ESPN, TSU)

The Tennessee State transfer prospect visited Oklahoma State and Tulane recently.

Rhett averaged 11 ppg 9 rpg and 1 block this season at TSU.

Sounds like he got some pickup ball in with the team on his visit.

Myles Turner, 5-Star 6’11 225 pound Center from Euless, Texas (ESPN, Rivals, Scout, 247)

The Myles Turner recruitment continues. It would seem the chances for Oklahoma State to land the big man are pretty slim at this point, but his relationship with the coaching staff seems to be keeping the Cowboys in the hunt.

“He feels particularly close to the coaching staff at Oklahoma State” (KCS)

  • OSU-Bill

    All the Kansas fans seem to think KU gets him unless Embiid stays for next year and that his delay is waiting for Embiid’s decision.
