Oregon State will be welcoming a few promising players who will be joining the squad next year.
While they may redshirt, with an abundance of proven upperclassmen ahead of them, these are the guys who will try and fill the holes that will inevitably be left by Jared Cunningham, Ahmad Starks, Roberto Nelson and so on.
Maika Ostling is a 6’10” center out of Oregon’s own Dayton High School and finds himself ranked as the 30th best center prospect by ESPN.com.
Said to have a good jump shot, and good reactions off the glass, Ostling could provide similar output to what we will be seeing from Devon Collier over the next couple of years.
OSU expanded its recruiting pipeline yet again with Craig Robinson at the helm as they snagged 6’7″ forward Jarmal Reid, out of Decatur, Georgia.
He’s rated as the 52nd best small forward in the country and is said to be a solid combo forward with an improving perimeter game.
Reid is said to be a great passer, and is able to drive to the basket and finish strong at the rim.
Here are some highlights of Jarmal Reid’s senior year
Rounding out the list of notable recruits is Langston Morris-Walker, out of Berkeley California.
Said to be the heir apparent to Jared Cunningham, Morris-Walker is a 6’5″ forward who is able to finish strong at the rim, as well as throw down some impressive dunks, a la Cunningham.
Ranked the 29th best small forward, and 146th best overall player by Rivals.com, Morris-Walker will be a very nice addition to the Oregon State men’s basketball program.
