Stevie Clark was named Gatorade high school player of the year on Thursday for the second straight year. He’ll be gunning shots next year for the Cowboys in Gallagher-Iba Arena as you know.

Here’s a history of Oklahoma POYs since 2000, what college they went to, and their career points average.

2013 – Stevie Clark – OSU
2012 – Stevie Clark – OSU
2011 – Ryan Spangler – Gonzaga/OU – 2.5
2010 – Tyler Neal – OU – 3.2
2009 – Xavier Henry – Kansas – 13.4
2008 – Xavier Henry – Kansas – 13.4
2007 – Blake Griffin – OU – 18.8
2006 – Obi Muonelo – OSU – 11.7
2005 – Taylor Griffin – OU – 6.6
2004 – Darnell Jackson – Kansas – 6.8
2003 – J.R. Giddens – Kansas/New Mexico – 13.3
2002 – Shelden Williams – Duke – 13.9
2001 – Shelden Williams – Duke – 13.9
2000 – Terrence Crawford – OSU – 3.2

Interesting to me that so many have stayed at home — either attending OU or OSU. Really the list, other than Sheldon Williams, is Kansas, OU, or OSU in some order.

There’s a history of success here too. Other than TC (knee injury), Ryan Spangler (jury’s still out), and Tyler Neal (I dunno) all of these guys have gone on to have at least some success in college and many in the NBA as well.

Bodes well for Marcus Smart’s backup replacement in 2014.
