Norman,Oklahoma is a host to a handful of Oklahoma squads mixing it up with Texas teams. Here’s a look at who caught the eye from Friday’s action.
The newcomer for Owasso has always been an intriguing prospect due to his impressive height, wingspan and shooting touch. His Friday performance was an indication that he’s starting to fill out the rest of his skillset. He worked harder on the defensive end, moving his feet better and using his length to his advantage when switched onto guards. On offense there was even flashes of good drives to the rim. Kerr is a prospect that is starting to turn potential into production at the right time.
Scott opened the game with a quick three after Douglass won the tip, and the floodgates were open. The energetic shooter was consistently getting down court in transition and finding open spots along the three point line for his teammates to find him. The rising junior’s shooting ability is very much “microwave” quality, as once he hits one three the rim must look giant as he strings together makes. Scott continues to look comfortable with a one-two dribble pull up when ran off the line. His energy was even present in a good tip in when he crashed the offensive glass. The Trojans would roll in a win over a bigger squad from Texas, proving they’re still very much in the mix to defend their Class 4A crown.
Union ran away with a Friday afternoon contest and a large part of that was the up tempo distribution of the junior guard. He was constantly looking to turn defense into offense, grabbing boards and pushing it. From outlet passes to quality pocket passes to Union’s quality post players, Gunn’s distribution was a key part of Union’s attack.
After playing the role of a sharpshooter specialist as a freshman, the young guard is maturing into a more all around scorer. Williams continued to hit from distance in this, but with more ball handling responsibilities, he was getting downhill and hit contested shots at the rim with his floater. And even a couple good pull ups in the mid-range. With elite perimeter shooter in his back pocket and solid size, the young Owasso Ram was always a prospect to monitor. But if Friday was any indication, the hardworking 918 standout has the ability to be an all around scorer and one of the best prospects in Oklahoma’s Class of 2026.
A lanky forward-wing prospect, he has good, effortless quality to his bounce, with a quality second jump which allowed him to be very competitive on the glass on both ends of the court. His finishing around the rim was raw, but he did earn trips to the foul line with his enthusiasm at attacking the basket. Surrounding by a deep group of quality guards this winter, look for Ransome to step up and give important minutes on the glass and energy on both ends of the court for the Class 4A defending champs.
