Four-star point guard Courtney Ramey, a St. Louis area prospect who was originally committed to Louisville before Rick Pitino’s ouster, will make an official visit to Oklahoma State this weekend according to Evan Daniels of 247Sports.

Ramey is a 6-foot-3, 170-pound athlete from Webster Groves High School ranked by 247Sports as the No. 45 overall player in the 2018 class, and the No. 10 player at his respective position.

It’s a big weekend on the hardwood for OSU, as it hosts a top 10 foe in Wichita State on Saturday. So if the fans show out and OSU makes a favorable showing, it could leave a solid impression on one of the better 2018 prospects still on the board at this juncture.

Ramey is also scheduled to make official visits to Texas and Villanova as things sit right now. In-state school Missouri has also emerged as a threat to land him, as has Ohio State and new coach Chris Holtmann.

OSU has two signees in the Class of 2018 now in 6-foot-11 Yor Anei and 6-foot-8 Duncan Demuth, but lacks a punch at the guard position still. So a commitment from Ramey would do wonders to stabilize the position, specifically at point guard, as graduate transfer Kendall Smith will expire his eligibility at the end of this season.
