Oklahoma State Offers High-Flying 2022 Guard Justyn Fernandez

All the dunks.

Mike Boynton’s new staff has a lot of ties to the East Coast, something that can be seen with the Cowboys’ recent offers.

The latest example came Saturday afternoon when Oklahoma State extended an offer to Virginia standout Justyn Fernandez.

Who Is He?

This kid can fly. A 6-foot-5 combo guard, Fernandez floats when attacking the rim, making for some highlight reel dunks.

He plays his preps ball at Virginia Episcopal School in Lynchburg, Virginia and with DC Premier on the AAU scene.

To go with his rim-rattling athleticism, Fernandez has a comfortable jumper, forcing teams to guard him at all three levels.

Others Involved

Fernandez’s stock started soaring the past two months, picking up offers from Florida, Ole Miss, Georgia, Texas A&M, Illinois, Wake Forest, Georgetown, Arizona State, Oregon State, Clemson, Boston College and others.

He had just one offer entering this spring, LaSalle.

He took visits to George Mason (on June 24, before his blow up) and Oregon State (on June 30, just as he started to go national).

In the Rankings

The 2022 rankings are imperfect with prospects not getting an AAU season last summer, and Fernandez flying under the radar is an example of that. He doesn’t have a composite score, but 247Sports and Rivals list him as a three-star prospect.
