Basketball recruiting: No commits but OSU has been busy

Travis Ford is targeting some massive recruits for 2015.



The Cowboy basketball staff has been hard at it this summer on the recruiting trail. The Pokes made the cut for three 5-star recruits that recently narrowed their respective lists.

In addition to the 5-star prospects, OSU has been extremely active this summer working on ensuring depth at the point guard position next season. We’ll cover all that and more in a summer recap edition of the PFB recruiting update. 


Elijah Thomas, 6’9 250 pound Center from Lancaster, Texas (ESPN, Rivals, Scout, 247)

Thomas cut his list to six and already has a visit to Stillwater set up in mid-September. It could be said that Thomas is the Myles Turner of this class for Travis Ford. Lets hope this round goes in the Pokes favor.

Gotta like what you see here. A guy that versatile at 6’9 250 pounds could make any opponent quiver.

Jawun Evans, 5-star 6 ft. 165 pound PG from Dallas, Texas (ESPN, Rivals, Scout, 247)

Oklahoma State is in the final four for one of the nations most highly touted point guards in Evans.

DJ Hogg, 5-Star 6’7 195 pound SF from Plano, Texas (ESPN, Rivals, Scout, 247)

Pokes have made Hogg’s top 6. This kid has a cannon with great size at his position.

Brandon Sampson, 4-Star 6’4 175 pound SG from Baton Rouge, Louisiana (ESPN, Rivals, 247)

Sampson is a new name from familiar grounds. It’s no surprise that OSU, and more specifically, Butch Pierre is back recruiting the top talent in Louisiana.

Ty Hudson, 4-Star 6’1 180 pound PG from Mableton, Georgia (ESPN, Rivals, Scout, 247)

Ford is covering the country to ensure that his squad will not be hurting for depth at the point guard position next year. It was nearly a big problem this year until LSU transfer Anthony Hickey relieved some depth concern over the one spot.

Nick Rogers, 3-Star 6’1 170 pound PG from Whitestown, Indiana (ESPN, Rivals, 247)

See above.
