The Oklahoma State basketball team still has a few spots to fill for its 2019 class, but that hasn’t deterred the Cowboys’ coaching staff to looking beyond only next season.
Mike Boynton and his staff have extended a few new offers to 2020 and 2021 prospects. These recent offers have also showcased new assistant Erik Pastrana, as three of these prospects are from Florida. Pastrana is a Miami native who has a degree from Florida State and coached at Florida Atlantic, Florida International, Daytona State College and Northwest Florida State College.
Jaxson Robinson, 2021, SG, 6-5, Ada, Oklahoma
In-state standout Jaxson Robinson has seen his stock skyrocket as of late.
Since Friday, Robinson has put on his Instagram that he has received offers from Houston, Oklahoma State, Tulsa and TCU.
beyond blessed to receive my second offer from Coach Boynton and Oklahoma State University! 🧡 https://t.co/cO6FfncoWL

Robinson is finishing up his sophomore year at Ada High School. He also plays with Team Griffin on the AAU circuit. Robinson and Team Griffin are in Arkansas this weekend, where he hit 9-of-11 3s on Friday. At 6-5 as a sophomore, Robinson might still have some growing to do.
Robinson isn’t ranked on 247 yet, but with how much his recruitment has jetted as of late, that’ll likely change soon.
Michael Eads, 2020, SG, 6-5, Edgewater, Florida
2020 prospect Michael Eads has already begun filling out his 6-foot-5 frame, as Verbal Commits lists him at 200 pounds.
Eads offer seems heavily linked with Pastrana, as Pastrana was mentioned before Boynton in Eads’ announcement tweet.

Eads has also tweeted out offers from Florida Gulf Coast, FIU and North Florida. He doesn’t have a 247 profile, something that will again likely change.
Ramses Melendez, 2020, SG, 6-6, Kissimmee, Florida
Another shooting guard, Ramses Melendez has picked up offers from Oklahoma State and Florida this month.
The Puerto Rican plays AAU ball with Team Parsons.

AJ Neal, 2021, CG, 6-1, Orlando, Florida
Another high school sophomore, AJ Neal boasts myriad offers despite his youth.
OSU is the latest, but Kansas State, Florida State, Ole Miss, SMU and a handful of others schools have also sent Neal offers.
Blessed to have received a offer from Oklahoma State truly blessed 😤😤😤 pic.twitter.com/ddw85RbQTN

Neal has a bit of an unusual release, in that the ball comes out quicker than it looks like it will, but as only a sophomore his skills and offers are impressive.
