Four-Star Forward Trent Pierce Includes OSU in Final Group

Pierce is a three-level scorer and former in-state standout.



Mike Boynton was one of the first to offer an in-state stud, and it appears to be paying off.

Trent Pierce, a 2023 forward from Tulsa, Oklahoma, announced his Final 6 on Tuesday night, and the Cowboys made the cut. Also included were Oklahoma, Missouri, Minnesota, Florida and Illinois.

Pierce is a 6-foot-7, 180-pound forward who can score at all three levels and defend. He hails from Tulsa Union and previously played his AAU ball with Oklahoma-based Team Griffin, but has since moved to Arizona and transferred to hoops power Arizona Compass Prep. He is currently listed as a four-star prospect according to 247Sports’ composite ranking, the No. 81 recruit in the class and the No. 7 player out of Arizona.

Earlier this spring, Pierce caught up with Pistols Firing’s Marshall Scott about his recent visit to Stillwater and his recruitment overall. Here’s what he had to say about OSU.

“Overall, I’d say I really love the coaching staff. They’re very transparent, I’d say. They’re really honest and upfront with me,” said Pierce. “They’ve been recruiting me for a while now. Having conversations with Coach Boynton, and all that the other coaches, you can see that they really want me. They want what I do well. What I don’t do well, they want to be able to help with my process with that.”

OSU offered early, but the Cowboys weren’t the first to come knocking for the in-state talent. Pierce received his first three offers — all in the same day — from a trio of Oklahoma schools last August when OU, Tulsa and Oral Roberts extended. The Cowboys took less than a month to come calling, extending a scholarship during Pierce’s trip to Stillwater on September 5.

Pierce also told PFB that he was eyeing August or September to make a decision.
