Over this summer no other prospect in the Oklahoma 2021 Class raised their stock more than, Matthew Stone. What makes him one of the fastest rising stars is the hard work he is putting in on the court. Stone is a talented scorer from the Wing with a sharp looking jumper. He also has improved his drive using a great change of pace with a deceivingly quick first step to the basket. Last Thursday night, Stone took an unofficial visit to Oklahoma State for the opening football game against Missouri State. It is super early in Stone’s recruitment, but he is a player on several NCAA Division I programs radars. Stone really enjoyed his time at Oklahoma State.

“My experience was amazing at OSU,” said Stone. I enjoyed every minute of it. Most of all getting to know the coaches.”

Stone already has an older brother playing baseball at Oklahoma State. The familiarity of Stone with the Cowboys will certainly help if they end up going his direction. The relationship Stone is building with Oklahoma State head coach Mike Boynton will also be a huge positive.  

“My relationship with Coach Boynton is very positive,” said Stone. “I can see that he truly cares for his players and that he is a very genuine person.”

Stone has a good broad idea of what he is looking for in a college basketball program. 

“I’m looking for an opportunity to play great basketball while building lifelong relationships with my teammates and coaches while studying sports communications in college,” said Stone.

After coming up just short at Kingfisher in his freshman season Stone and Kingfisher are ready to go win a state championship. Kingfisher is loaded with a great group with more than enough firepower to capture the Gold Ball in Class 4A. 

“My goals this year are to keep working to get better and find new ways to up my game,” said Stone. “Also, I would like to help my team get back to the State Finals and enjoy the State Tournament as an experienced player at full strength on the biggest stage in Oklahoma.”
