OSU in the Mix to Land Elite Big Man Prospect Brandon Garrison

Mike Boynton and his coaching staff are squarely in the mix to potentially come on top in a heated recruiting battle for four-star big man Brandon Garrison. Garrison, a 6-foot-9 center from Del City, Oklahoma, made an official visit to OSU two weeks ago and apparently came away impressed, with Rivals’ Travis Graf predicting he lands with the Pokes earlier this week.

Garrison has offers from OSU, Kansas, Arkansas, LSU and several others, but the Pokes may have a hidden advantage here through Team USA. You might recall Boynton is an assistant on Team USA’s U18 team this summer for Mexico? Well how’s this for a twist: Garrison is one of the players competing for the final roster. That’s right, Boynton’s currently his coach (and maybe his future one, too).

This won’t be an easy one to close — Texas, Texas A&M, OU and pretty much every program of relevance within the region is involved — but so far, so good. Here’s what he said of OSU to Graf from Rivals earlier last month.

“Coach Boynton hits me up like every day and shows love,” Garrison said. “I just came back from an official (visit) there this weekend. I liked it a lot. I like how they do things.”

Garrison is ranked in the 247Sports Composite as the No. 1 player in the state of Oklahoma for the 2023 cycle and No. 60 overall. He’s been on the OSU radar for quite some time now after the Cowboys made him his first scholarship offer a year ago this week.
