School just began for most districts across the state and the 2026 class is officially now at the high school level. And on Saturday morning and afternoon in Edmond, we got our first real good look at the 2026 class at the Oklahoma Freshman Showcase. We had nearly 80 2026 prospects in attendance and they participated in three games throughout the event against other ’26 prospects. In this post, we take a look at more standouts from the event. In case you missed it, you can check out our picks for the Top Performers, including the MVP selection. A few of these names in this post, we already knew about and the others shined from start to finish and were some of the best performers from the event on Saturday.
– Forward – Deer Creek
In the very first game we watched, forwardjumped off the page at us. His team ended up having a fairly strong morning and afternoon and several players stood out on the squad but Robinson from start to finish was impressive. Right now, he looks like he’s growing into a small forward position where he has size to go against guards but he has that guard skill set. There were a few players like that on Saturday and Robinson was just one of them. From the start, Robinson had a little bit of everything working for him. He could get his shot on his own. He could hit from several areas on the floor and he was getting teammates involved. Robinson was also active on the defensive side of the floor. Like a lot of these 2026 prospects, we’re interested to see how much more they grow. But if Robinson doesn’t grow much more, he’s still one to watch because he already has legit guard skills.
– Guard – Southeast
We mentioned how we knew a few of the 2026 prospects in attendance on Saturday and here’s one of them with Southeast guard. We first got a chance to see Chaffin a little over a month ago at one of our Prep Hoops Circuit events in Oklahoma City. Chaffin had just been called up to the varsity level and participated in team camps in June. You can tell that his confidence is continuing to get higher and higher over the last few months. Chaffin had his game working on Saturday and could get to the basket at will. He’s a physical guard that can also shoot a little bit and he was showcasing those skills on a team that was fairly loaded with talent. Chaffin definitely belongs on the short list of top prospects in the state’s ’26 class already. Southeast is absolutely loaded as they go into the high school season this winter and they’re going to be a very fun team to watch and Chaffin can provide even more depth at the guard position.
– Forward – Holland Hall
The first of a pair of Wilsons that shined on Team 4 was Holland Hall forward. We really liked his game early on during the Showcase event on Saturday. He’s a versatile athlete that, similar to a few other top prospects, was just as comfortable working as a guard or a forward. He was doing a little bit of everything throughout the day and he ended up being one of our top performers. He narrowly missed the cut on making the top five from Saturday and is definitely going to be a name to watch moving forward. Headed to Holland Hall, Wilson is joining a team that definitely has the tools to make it to another state tournament. He could be an instant impact player for the Dutch and provide them with depth this winter. We’re definitely going to be watching how Wilson grows his game over the next season and see just how he develops to figure out where he fits as a prospect in the 2026 class.
– Forward – Deer Creek
The second Deer Creek standout to make this breakdown is another forward prospect with. In fact, this Wilson played with from Holland Hall on Team 4. That Wilson connection worked out really well throughout the day on Saturday. looks to be more of a guard for the high school ranks and early on as a prospect. He was an excellent shooter on Saturday and if he continues to grow, he’s going to become a tough weapon to stop on the offensive end. The guard skills are there and we definitely see him transitioning to more of a shooting guard role at the high school level and ultimately as a college prospect. Again, it’s so early to start talking about some of these players as prospects because some could grow six inches in the next few years and some could stop growing all together. Projecting incoming freshmen is incredibly tough but no matter what happens with his height, Wilson is already an outstanding shooter.
– Guard – North Rock Creek
When you consider what teamwas on, it could have been easy for him to fall back and let some of the bigger names shine on Saturday. That’s not what happened. In their very first game, while some of those other big names were struggling to get going, Burdine came out on fire. The lefty from North Rock Creek was showing off a legit bag of weapons on the offensive end of the floor. We have Burdine listed as a guard but he was also one of the taller kids in attendance on Saturday. It will be interesting to see how he plays at the high school level. He had a really strong showing in that first game and there’s no doubt that he has a skill set that is worth watching moving forward. He’s another example of why we do events like this. We didn’t know really anything about Burdine before the event on Saturday and now we’re walking away wanting to see more from him over the next few years.
