Oklahoma State Offers Five-star Class of 2022 Guard Dariq Whitehead

Boynton offers an elite 2022 prospect.

One of the very best and brightest recruits in the 2022 basketball recruiting class now has Oklahoma State on his trail. Five-star guard Dariq Whitehead, from basketball powerhouse Montverde Academy, announced Monday that OSU extended him a scholarship offer.

The 6-foot-5 Whitehead is a listed shooting guard. Right now Rutgers, Seton Hall and Arkansas-Little Rock are among the few to offer, but the small list has more to do with him being a sophomore than him being a high-major prospect.

Whitehead is as can’t-miss as they come. First off, he’s at Montverde — a place that only takes (and produces) can’t-miss guys. (Ben Simmons, D’Angelo Russell, Joel Emiid all played there.) Second, and perhaps most importantly, he’s a human microwave. Check out this gem from last fall:

I have no clue what a CBD Regional is, but it seems exotic, and scoring 48 points in any event — CBD or not — is quite zesty.

Buried the lede, I did: Whitehead, being from Montverde, has had the influence of playing alongside Oklahoma State signee Cade Cunningham. While Cunningham will already have clinched an NBA All-Star appearance before Whitehead appears in college, his influence — and perhaps, his production — might give OSU an advantage other schools won’t have. If Cunningham goes from Montverde star to OSU star to NBA star, the stars could align for Whitehead to follow suit.
