Oklahoma State Offers Arkansas Center Kel’el Ware

OSU seems to be prioritizing bigs in the 2022 class.

Mike Boynton could spend a lot of time in North Little Rock, Arkansas, during the next few years.

Oklahoma State offered 2022 center Kel’el Ware this past weekend. Ware is the second Charging Wildcat Boynton has offered this long summer.

Who Is He?

Ware is similar to Kalib Boone. He is tall, long but still capable of playing in the mid-range.

Listed at 6-foot-11, 210 pounds, Ware stars at North Little Rock High School. He plays alongside Bryson Warren, a 2023 prospect who already has an OSU offer. Behind their two young stars, the Charging Wildcats went 22-5 last season, making it to the quarterfinals of the Arkansas 6A state tournament.

Others Involved

It’s still early in Ware’s process, but he has put together a nice list of offers so far.

Kansas, Arkansas, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, Ole Miss, TCU, Illinois, Virginia Tech, Tulsa, Oral Roberts, Alcorn State, Hampton and Central Arkansas join OSU as programs that have extended offers.

In the Rankings

Ware is a composite four-star recruit and ranks 122nd in those rankings.

Rivals and 247 each list him as a three-star prospect with Rivals ranking him as the 123rd player in the 2022 class.

OSU Prioritizing Bigs in 2022?

With the Ware offer, OSU has four offers out to 2022 centers and only two in the 2021 class.

The two in the 2021 class are to Daimion Collins and Nick Davidson, who is committed to Nevada.

I think OSU would obviously take a commitment from Collins, who is a five-star prospect, but if the Cowboys aren’t able to secure his commitment, 2022 looks like the most likely spot for OSU to add a big.

That’s honestly OK, too. On OSU’s 2020-21 roster, there are three players who could play center in Kalib Boone, Montreal Pena and Bernard Kouma.
