Oklahoma State Makes the Cut for 2023 Top-50 Prospect Kaden Cooper

July 30, 2022

STILLWATER – Oklahoma State has made an early round of cuts for 2023 top-50 prospect, Kaden Cooper.

He’s trimmed his list down to 10, which includes Oklahoma State, Alabama, Georgia Tech, Gonzaga, Kansas, Kansas State, LSU, Memphis, OU and Texas, from nearly 30 offers, which includes UConn, Creighton, Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, Texas Tech and UCLA among others.

Cooper is a 6-5, 180-pound small forward out of Ada, OK. According to 247Sports, Cooper is a four-star prospect and the No. 45 overall prospect in the 2023 class. He also checks in as the No. 8 SF in the country and the No. 5 overall prospect out of Oklahoma.

Even though he’s listed as from Oklahoma, Cooper currently plays his high school ball with The Skill Factory out of Atlanta, GA, which also features some of the top players in the NBA, including James Harden and Trae Young.

Cooper is an athletic prospect who can get to through the paint and to the rim with ease, but he’s a staunch defender, a quality Mike Boynton seeks in his players. He’s size and athleticism allows him to guard the 1-4 positions, but his offensive skills are constantly improving, which makes him even more desirable.

He’s already taken an official visit to Gonzaga and according to 247Sports, he’s planning on taking OVs to Alabama, LSU and Texas. He also told 247Sports he’d like to have his recruiting process wrapped up at some point this coming winter.

With the success Boynton and Co. has had recruiting the state of Oklahoma, I’d imagine they’re going to be pushing hard to be one of Cooper’s four remaining official visits.

OSU currently has one commitment in the 2023 class, four-star forward out of Del City (OK) HS, Brandon Garrison. Garrison, a 6-9, 205-pound forward, is currently ranked as the No. 52 overall prospect in the 2023 class.
