Mike Boynton and the Oklahoma State Cowboys nabbed their first commitment of the 2023 recruiting class and it was a big one.
Four-star center Brandon Garrison, the No. 1 player in Oklahoma and No. 7 center in the country, chose the Cowboys over Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Houston among others on Thursday.
Garrison is listed at 6-9, 215 pounds and is set to begin his senior year at Del City High School in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
On3’s Senior Recruiting Analyst Gerry Hamilton likes what he sees in Garrison and points out that the talented four-star is a great all-around player.
“Strong and physical presence in the paint. A developing frame With broad shoulders, long arms and strong hands. Has displayed good feet on both ends of the floor, with the feel for being a very good team defender. Plays with a high-end motor, and competes for every rebounds. Possesses good touch inside 12 feet, and that shows up in contested scenarios with extended arms working to change a shot. Will work to do a lot of little things on both ends that don’t show up in a box score.“
“I chose Oklahoma State because I feel it’s the best fit for me,” Brandon Garrison told On3. “The coaching staff has been recruiting me for two-and-a-half years and always kept it real with me. I want to play for my home state and the coaches have a winning mentality.”
