The No. 1 player in the state of Oklahoma will play his college basketball north of the state he grew up in. Four-star recruit David Castillo, the top player in the state in the 2024 cycle from Bartlesville, Oklahoma, announced on Tuesday in a long-anticipated commitment that he will play for Jerome Tang at Kansas State. Castillo chose the Wildcats over OSU, Kansas, Arkansas, Florida and others.

Castillo visited OSU on an official basis last fall more than a year after Mike Boynton and his staff made him his first power program scholarship offer. The 6-foot-1, 165-pound combo guard elicited national attention this winter and spring, though, with Kansas State, Kansas and others entering the race to steal attention from him.

OSU signed the top-ranked player in the state of Oklahoma in the 2023 cycle in Del City big man Brandon Garrison and has the top-ranked player in the 2020 class, Bryce Thompson, on its roster after he signed initially with Kansas out of high school. So to see Castillo land elsewhere is something of a surprise, given how well the staff has done recruiting stars within the state. However, the 2024 class still could wind up being a really good one with OSU in the mix for several in-state standouts including T.O. Barrett and Dayton Forsythe.
