Pritchard decommits from Oklahoma

Four-star point guard Payton Pritchard is back on the market, as he decommitted from Oklahoma just prior to the July evaluation period.

Highly touted 2016 point guard Payton Pritchard is back on the market, a source tells Scout.

Pritchard committed to Oklahoma on November 18th over serious interest from Gonzaga, Oregon, Villanova and Wisconsin.

Both Pritchard and his father -- Terry -- later confirmed the news to

"Yea I did decommit, but they're still on my list and I could go back there," Pritchard told Scout.

"He's been thinking about it," the elder Pritchard said. "He just wants to be 100 percent sure. He's a mature kid. He wants to make sure the right decision. He just wants to look at his options. He committed so early. He just wants to make the right choice."

A four-star prospect, Pritchard is currently regarded as Scout's No. 10 point guard and as the No. 52 overall recruit in the 2016 recruiting class.

"Payton Pritchard is a talented point guard who has a pretty high floor as a high major prospect," Scout analyst Josh Gershon said.

"He can really handle the ball and is a threat to hit pull-up jumpers and floaters from midrange," he added. "Not just a scorer, Pritchard has the vision to create for others. He's a safe pick to have a successful college career."

Pritchard is one of the most decorated players in Oregon history, as he's won the Oregon Class 6A player of the year the past two seasons, plus three consecutive state titles at West Linn (Ore.) High.
