Oklahoma State coach Mike Boynton lands elite 2023 forward Justin McBride
McBride is Mike Boynton’s fourth commitment from the 2023 class.
Two weeks ago Justin McBride told Sports Illustrated that the school he’d ultimately commit to would have to undergo the intense scrutiny of his information-gathering process.
On Wednesday, the 6’7″ forward wrote in an exclusive blog for SI that Oklahoma State had thrived in all aspects under the magnifying glasses ..
McBride chose the Cowboys over Arizona State and Missouri.
“It’s official. “I’m committed to Oklahoma State, which I’m so excited for to be able say,” McBride wrote . “For me, it came down to two things: Coach [Mike] Boynton and their style of play.”
McBride had a dominant summer with Drive Nation (Texas) playing in the grueling Nike EYBL circuit, averaging 16.8 points and five rebounds a game.
McBride’s unique combination of size, quickness, and a wide range of skills should work well with Boynton’s fast-paced offense. This observation McBride made after spending hours studying Cowboys film.
“They intend to use me as a playmaker who can push and rebound, and make difficult shots,” McBride wrote . “That’s what I did at Peach Jam, and that versatility is what can get you to the next level.”
McBride joins Brandon Garrison, Jamyron Keller and Connor Dow to form Oklahoma State’s 2023 class.
