Top-125 Center Jonathan Aku Includes OSU Among Top 10 Schools

OSU is targeting a computer fanatic to fill a spot in its 2020 class at center.

Oklahoma State has made the top schools for top-125 center Jonathan Aku, a 6-foot-10, 210 pound prospect from Lewisville, Texas.

Aku announced his newly-trimmed list over the weekend which also included, in no specific order: Texas Tech, LSU, Baylor, Arkansas, Tulsa, Houston, TCU, Texas A&M and Georgetown.

Aku has played his recruitment close to the vest and played no favorites, though the 2020 big man is said to be eyeing Texas A&M and Texas Tech — the two prominent in-state schools — with an elevated interest.

OSU has been on Aku since the first of this year, when they offered in February. By that time, LSU, TCU, A&M, Tulsa, Georgetown and Houston had already offered. It may not matter, though, based on what he told 247Sports recently about what he’s looking for in his college.

“For me, I want to go somewhere that I can play and will be accepted,” he said. “Most importantly, though, it is about education. I love computers and I want to set myself up for life after basketball.”

OSU can offer Aku a spot in its 2020 class alongside Davonte Davis (and maybe Cade Cunningham), but it can also offer computer engineering or computer science undergraduate majors that could help sway him down the line before he makes his decision.
