Phoenix, Arizona product Davion Bradford, a 7-foot Class of 2020 big man standout, announced this week that he is uprooting himself and moving to Oklahoma to join Oklahoma Run PWP, an AAU team that has been fruitful for OSU of late.
I’ve been told Bradford will attend Ponca City to live with his guardian — a PWP coach — before he makes the transition to college. Even more interesting in this development: OSU legend Ivan McFarlin (yes he’s a legend, get at me), was hired as an assistant on the coaching staff.
The Cowboys hold two commitments from Run PWP products in Keylan and Kalib Boone in the 2019 cycle and Bradford, considered a top-150 prospect in 2020, may soon be skyrocketing up OSU’s radar. It’s likely only a matter of time before OSU gets involved.
This may all set up to give OSU a chance to make a huge splash in the state in the 2020 class. Bradford’s a big fish on his own, but if Boynton is able to hang in the mix for Booker T. Washington Class of 2020 shooting guard Bryce Thompson, a top-40 national recruit, it’s not unrealistic to think OSU could craft a top-5 nationally-ranked class in 2020 centered around two blue-chip in-state talents in Thompson and Bradford, with in-state standouts Rondel Walker and Dayten Holman lingering on the radar as targets, too.
