This late into the 2021 cycle, it seemed as if Mike Boynton would work the transfer portal more than high school seniors, but then something opened up.

Four-star center Jonas Aidoo decommitted from Marquette on Monday, and Boynton was there to offer him a spot in Stillwater on Tuesday.

Who Is He?

Hailing from Liberty Heights Athletic Institute in Charlotte, Aidoo is a 6-foot-11, 215-pound center.

He is long but skilled for his age, as despite his height and long arms, he ahs a decent 3-point shooting ability.

Aidoo was initially in the 2020 class, but reclassified to 2021 to play a post-graduate season at Liberty Heights.

Here is what 247Sports analyst Jerry Meyer wrote about Aidoo in October:

Long, mobile and has positive athleticism. Must get stronger and tougher. Functional athleticism will improve with strength gain. Has good shooting touch to behind the arc. Can finish with his off hand (left). Decent rebounder but needs more strength on the boards. Has good court awareness. Does not have much back to the basket game at this point. Good to great shot blocker. Has a lot of potential. Again, strength gain is vital.

In the Rankings

Aidoo is the No. 60 player in all of the 2021 class, according to the composite rankings. That makes him a four-star prospect. In the composite rankings, he is the seventh-ranked center in the class and ranks first among prospects from North Carolina.

Rivals is higher on Aidoo than 247 is. Rivals lists him as the No. 33 prospect in the class. The outlet also lists him at 7-foot, 215 pounds.

Others Involved

With Aidoo just opening up his recruitment Monday, it’s still early. But, since Aidoo reopened his recruitment, he has also heard from North Carolina, Boston College, Texas A&M, Georgia, Ohio State and Maryland, according to 247Sports’ Travis Branham.
