2018

Jaycson Bereal Booker T. Washington Forward (Signed to Boise State)

Bereal has lots of potential heading to Boise State as a Forward he features great athleticism, good size and length. He is at his best going to the rim. Defensively, he will have an opportunity to be a good defender at Boise if he works hard at it due to his athleticsim and length.

Shemar Walker Tulsa Memorial Point Guard 

Walker projects to the small college level. He runs the offense well at the Point for Tulsa Memorial. The steady handle of Walker mixed with his ability to create for others will help a college program at the next level.

Kori Guest Tulsa Memorial Wing 

Guest has been terrific for Tulsa Memorial this season. The 6’5 Wing is a sniper from three-point range with a good solid build. He projects to the JUCO level.

Craig Webb Tulsa Memorial Point Guard

Webb has played a lot off the ball for Tulsa Memorial giving them a good ball handling option at the Point. The biggest improvement to his game is his jumper. NAIA Division II is his projection in college.

Elisha Brantley Booker T. Washington Point Guard 

Brantley provides Booker T. Washington with big minutes as a Combo Guard that can handle the rock and hit clutch shots. The best attribute of Brantley is his hustle, energy and tenacious defense. He projects to the small college level.

2019

Kalib Boone Tulsa Memorial Post 

Boone already holds a High Major offer from Oklahoma State and is getting ready to be recruited by several High Major programs around the country. He is tall, long, lanky with upside. This year Boone has become aggressive in the paint making opponents feel his presence at all times. He dominates the boards, takes high percentage shots and is starting to get a solid jumper from mid-range. Kalib has elevated his game to become the top player in the 2019 Oklahoma Class.

Keylan Boone Tulsa Memorial Wing 

Twin brother of Kalib, Keylan also holds an offer from Oklahoma State. This season Keylan has turned the corner becoming a consistent jumper shooting and learning to use his length to his advantage on both ends of the floor. He has a high ceiling.

Seth Hurd Booker T. Washington Post 

Hurd holds an NCAA Division I offer from Denver and projects to the NCAA Division I Low Major level. This year Hurd has improved his hops, defense and rebounding. He is also starting to finish at a higher percentage on shots in the paint.

Demarco Jones Booker T. Washington Wing  

Jones would be a basketball recruit if he chose to play in college however he will take the football route. He is a good athlete that gives Booker T. Washington a lockdown defender on the Wing.

James Alexandre Tulsa Memorial Point Guard 

Alexandre is a bulldog at the Point Guard spot. He thrives on offense creating off the dribble and getting to the rim. He projects to the NAIA Division II to JUCO level.

Julian Cockrell Tulsa Memorial Post 

The 6’8 junior will have the opportunity to play at the small college level with his size, strength, ability to rebound and defend. He is still very raw on the offensive end.

2020

Bryce Thompson Booker T. Washington Wing 

Thompson is a well-known sophomore on the east side of the state with his sniper shooting stroke from behind the arc. He is the top player in the 2020 Oklahoma Class. As the season has continued he is getting better at putting the ball on the floor. It is important to remember he is just a sophomore. He already holds multiple High Major NCAA Division I offers.

Trey Phipps Booker T, Washington Point Guard 

Phipps is a 6′ Combo Guard with a great shooting stroke from three-point range. He can put it up from parking lot range. Oral Roberts has extended an offer to Phiipps and expect more NCAA Division I programs to show interest in him before he makes his college decision.

Kavon Key Tulsa Memorial Wing 

Key is a sophomore to keep an eye on at Tulsa Memorial. He is getting limited minutes as the Chargers are loaded but it appears that he will have the opportunity in his junior and senior years to be in a key role. It is a little early to project Key. What he brings to the table is a good firm 6’3 with a great build, tough defense, and good scoring inside.

Neither team has freshmen playing key roles at this point in the season, but as always with both of programs will have players in the 2021 Class. As for now, they are just waiting their turn to play under the bright lights.
