State of Oklahoma: Class of 2013 Rankings
Updated on May 6th 2011
1. Jordan Woodard, 5’11 PG, Edmond Memorial, Previous Ranking: 4
Woodard has arrived. No longer under the radar, this guard has the ability to get into the lane at will with the strength to finish amongst the trees or read the defense and deliver to open teammates. Although a well rounded player, Woodard needs to be more of a scoring threat. His jumper is still developing but he is starting to show flashes of being a deadly long range bomber.
Strength: Floor leadership, defense and dribble drive.
Weakness: Shooting consistency
Player Comparison: Former Memphis player Derrick Rose
2. Stevie Clark, 5’10 PG, OKC Douglass, Previous Ranking: 2
If Clark had played on any other team where he didn’t have to share the ball with multiple stars, his scoring stats would be some of the highest in the state. Clark projects best from the lead guard position where he is more of a threat. When relegated to the off guard position, Clark is limited to being a long range shooter.
Strength: Shooting Range and speed.
Weakness: Size and shot selection.
Player comparison: From UTEP player Randy Culpepper
3. Juwan Parker, 6’4 SG, Tulsa Washington, Previous Ranking: 1
The elite sophomore has all the skills to be a McDonald’s All American. Parker is already an accomplished shooter and has the leaping ability to attack the rim but he needs develop the ability to blow by defenders with a strong first step to complete his game. If the Hornet star adds the first step he has the chance to evolve into one of the elite wings in the nation.
Strength: Work ethic.
Player comparison: Former Kansas standout Xavier Henry
4. Shaquille Morris, 6’8 C Edmond Santa Fe, Previous Ranking: 4
Quite simply, Morris can be the most dominant player in the state if he brings it every game. A strong bull who is uncheckable by any player in Oklahoma, “Big Shaq” also possesses good footwork. If teammates and coaches get him involved early and often, look out.
Weakness: Inconsistent effort
Player comparison: Former Clemson player Trevor Booker
5. Nico Meadows, 6’2 PG, Capitol Hill, Previous Ranking 6
Meadows may be the second best PG in the state in any class. A floor general that can play at a change of pace and is now developing shooting consistency. Meadows suffers from being a big fish in small ponds, as he plays on a high school and summer team where he is clearly the man. Meadows desperately needs to bulk up to play in the lane
Strengths: Basketball IQ
Weakness: Over game manages at times.
Player Comparison: Former Oklahoma player A.J. Johnson.
6. Zach Rogers, 6’7 PF, Tulsa Holland Hall, Previous Ranking, 3
Rogers who grades out as a high to mid major prospect, established himself as the go to guy on a solid Holland Hall team. Based on size alone he will be a highly recruited athlete. But his skill around the basket and face up game will make him more of a valued commodity.
Strength: Craftiness around the basket .
Weakness. Lack of physicality.
Player comparison: Current Oklahoma player Andrew Fitzgerald.
7. Dorin Gigger, 6’6 PF, Moore, Previous Ranking: Unranked
Gigger is a talented forward on a Moore team that is off of the radar as far notoriety. On both his summer and travel teams, he is the go to guy and anchor in the middle.
Comparison – Former OSU player Ivan McFarlin.
8. Jakob Hartsock, 6’8 C, Bartlesville, Previous Ranking: Unranked
Brother of BYU standout, Noah Hartsock, Jakob made a name for himself down the stretch playing for an upstart Bruins’ squad.
Strengths: Pedigree and size
Weakness: Lacks physicality
Player Comparison: Former Utah player Alex Janzen
9. Zach Norris, 6’3 PG, Coweta, Previous Ranking: Unranked
Floor general that takes what defense gives, and has a mid range game. Norris is the best 2013 PG in the Tulsa area and his production of 16 points per game shows it. Like Meadows, Norris also could use extra muscle to navigate the lane.
Weakness: Lack of exposure to competition.
Player Comparison: Former Kansas player Kirk Hinrich.
10. Don Simmons, 6’3 SG, Tulsa Edison, Previous Ranking: Unranked
If you ask local coaches and players about the Edison guard, to a man they all vouch for his ability. When you see his ability and effort on display, you can’t help but to be impressed. The lack of floor time over his first few years of high school basketball has dramatically hurt his stock. Simmons plays on the edge emotionally, which brings mixed results at time.
Strength: High motor and athleticism.
Weakness: Poise and consistency.
Player comparison: Current Oklahoma State player Markel Brown.
11. Josh Thompson, 6’6 PF, Capitol Hill, Previous Ranking: Unranked
A physical post player who excels on the glass.
12. Carson Clay, 6’6 PF, Choctaw, Previous Ranking: Unranked
Clay is a high active post player who could emerge into a prospect with more height.
13. Corlbe Ervin, 6’0 G, Carl Albert, Previous Ranking: Unranked
A physical guard who has athleticism to be a top ten guy.
14. Seth Youngblood, 6’0 SG, Roland, Previous Ranking: Unranked
A big time scorer for a competitive 4A squad that was a state qualifier.
15. J.D. Warren 5’10 PG, Guthrie, Previous Ranking: 10
Warren is a cerebral PG that can push in transition or set up half court.
16. Tyler Holcomb, 6’5 SF, Stillwater, Previous Ranking: Unranked
A true small forward that is versatile enough to play 3 positions.
17. Jaylen Lowe, 6’0 CG, Owasso, Previous Ranking: Unranked
Tough nosed guard that has ability to handle and shoot.
18. David Bush, 5’10 CG, Putman City, Previous Ranking: Unranked
A fearless, high energy guard that loves getting out in transition.
19. Tyler Sander, 6’1 PG, Edmond North, Previous Ranking: Unranked
Sander uses his shooting ability to excel as a lead guard.
20. Jacob Richardson, 5’11 PG, Porter, Previous Ranking: Unranked
One of the best scorers on the small school level. Super quick.
