Just hours after Mike Boynton effectively filled up his 2021 class, he showed that he’s always got an eye on the future. On Thursday, four-star 2023 point guard Layden Blocker announced an OSU offer.

Who is he?

Blocker is a 6-foot-2, 160-pound floor general hailing from Sunrise Christian Academy (Kansas). On the AAU circuit, he plays for Bradley Beal Elite’s 16U squad. He’s originally from Little Rock, Arkansas.

Blocker’s highlight reel reveals a lethal scorer and an adept floor general who’s crafty in the pick-and-roll.

Here’s 247Sports recruiting analyst Brandon Jenkins on the Cowboys’ latest target.

“An athletic scoring guard, Layden Blocker has a great feel for the game and matching instincts. The 6-foot-2, 160-pound guard out of Little Rock (Ark.) Christian has a knack for getting in the paint and scoring the ball.

“He has fairly long arms and is a quality athlete with great burst. On the defensive end, he has potential as a bulldog guarding the ball by utilizing his length and lateral quickness to get stops.”

Blocker agreed.

“When I am at my best I am a scorer,” Blocker said of his game. “I can shoot the ball, I can facilitate and get my teammates involved as well. I’m also a really good on-ball defender.”

Others Involved

OSU makes offer No. 19 for the rising junior. That lengthy list includes the likes of Kansas, Baylor, Oklahoma, Texas A&M, Arkansas and Creighton.

In the Rankings?

247Sports Composite rating currently ranks Blocker as a four-star prospect, the No. 9 point guard in the cycle and the 55th-ranked player overall. He’s the top-rated player out of Kansas.
