Class of 2022 five-star center Enoch Boakye met virtually with coach Mike Boynton Wednesday afternoon.
The 6-foot-10, 240-pound big man decommitted from Michigan State earlier this week and scheduled multiple virtual meetings with different programs. Experts at 247Sports recently gave Oklahoma State crystal ball predictions, although the Spartans are still the favorites to win Boakye.
Boakye hails out of George Harris Prep Academy in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. He also represented Canada in the FIBA U16 Americas Championship, averaging 8.8 points and 10.8 rebounds a game.
Oklahoma State has yet to score a commit for the 2021 or 2022 recruiting classes, which may be a result of the NCAA violations brought down last summer. The Cowboy basketball program will serve three years probation and lose three scholarships between now and 2023. OSU is currently appealing the sanctions, but suffice to say, picking up a player of Boakye’s caliber could do wonders for Boynton and staff’s current recruiting handicap, assuming the appeal is rejected.
Boakye also holds offers from Arizona, Texas Tech, Houston and UCLA.
