OU targets in the Scout 100

Sooners hold a commitment from one member, pursuing others

Already in the middle of the best recruiting class since 2009, Oklahoma has a four-star wing man and a pair of high three-star post players verbally committed.

A new Scout 100 was released this week. Here’s a look at where Oklahoma stands and who the Sooners are pursuing that made the list.

Committed (1):

No. 33 SG Kameron McGusty (Seven Lakes, Texas)

The face of the Oklahoma 2016 class doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. One of the top scorers during the EYBL season, McGusty is set to sign in November during the early period.

Offered (4):

No. 12 C Marques Bolden (De Soto, Texas)

Bolden is the top-rated center in the nation and has offers from just about everybody – Kansas, Kentucky and Duke. Oklahoma reportedly secured an official visit, but Bolden, who is more of a power forward than a true center, is one of the more elusive recruits on the trail.

No. 54 PG J.J. Caldwell (Cypress Woods, Texas)

The Texas A&M commit, who is close friends with McGusty, has caught some recent interest from Oklahoma.

No. 67 PG DeJon Jarreau (McDonogh 35, Louisiana)

Oklahoma landed one of five official visits for the rangy point guard with elite athleticism. At 6-foot-4, Jarreau is a bit different from Jordan Woodard but still fits what Oklahoma wants to do on offense.

No. 91 C Taurean Thompson (St. Anthony, New Jersey)

An Oklahoma offer holder, Thompson hasn’t been a heavy target since the commitment of Matt Freeman and Kristian Doolittle.

Targeted:

No. 79 PG Tyson Carter (Starkville, Mississippi)

Carter has been one of the faster risers this summer, jumping into the Top 100 despite being unranked before this week. Still no offer from Oklahoma but a little bit of interest.
