LFG! He's the prototypical build for Moser's system and will have time to develop.

I really thought he was going to mizzou. Nice pickup.

Glad he committed! He has a sweet stroke i'll say that. However, I can't find any video of him against competition larger than a bunch of 5-11 looking guys.

Thanks for the link, MsProud.

This seems like a good pickup for us.

If he wants to bring his 6'10" older bro as a walk-on I'd take him too......started 16 games at Truman St last season...averaged almost 10 ppg and 4 rpg and shot 35% from 3

I watched this. How did the Jevon Porter kid go to Pepperdine? He’s not bad. His little brother is pretty good too. I guess the Porter family is done with Mizzou?

With Norweather, I see why Moser offered him. He can handle and pass on the perimeter pretty good for a 6ft10 kid. Looks to have a shooting touch too. I couldn’t get a gauge on how athletic he is. He moves OK. Got blown by on the perimeter a few times on this clip. However as a 5 he won’t be switched on to guards as much since most programs hedge and recover or ice screens.

I can see him as a decent pick and pop or cutting 5 after a good weight program and a year of experience.

Northweather may not be a finished product right now, but his potential jumps off of the page in this paragraph from his Gatorade POY article!


Quote:

The 6-foot-10, 220-pound senior forward averaged 29.2 points and 11.4 rebounds per game this past season, leading the Falcons (26-2) to the Class 4, District 9 championship game. Northweather also clicked for 3.4 assists, 2.4 blocks and 2.0 steals per game, connecting on 71.6 percent of his field-goal attempts, including 38.8 percent of his 3-pointers. A two-time Tri-County Conference Player of the Year, he scored a career-high 51 points in a 91-41 win over Eldon High on Feb. 8. He concluded his prep basketball career with 2,018 points.

Thanks for the article Ada. At first, I was meh to the highest degree. But i'm really starting to warm up to this cat. Like I said earlier sweet stroke and already has some weight. If he plays physical and rebounds we will have something. Seems to be able to score. I'm chalking this one up to hopefully a great eval and find by Moser and staff.

Stikboy, his high motor and rebounding with a purpose are the first things that caught my eye. He obviously needs to work on his defense, especially with smaller, quicker players. But, I think we’ll get that in time.

I couldn’t help but notice the praise he received from an opposing coach. He’s also a great student, and by all accounts a fine young man who makes a meaningful contribution to the community.

IMO, there’s a lot to like about Luke Northweather!

Was the rest of his HS team just average? Thought with such a tall center a HS team should finish higher in the state tournament.

Missouri has a ton of basketball talent, including lots of tall guys. Top 5 guys in the class of 2022 are all 6’7” or taller, mostly 4 and 5 star guys.

Luke’s team lost in district to the eventual state runner up by 3 points. That team has two 6’9” guys, 3 star Jevon Porter, brother of Michae Porter Jr, and 2023 Evens Appolon, who is at least a 3 star.

Thanks for the context, pnkranger. Missouri has a decent population so being the state player of the year there carries a lot of weight.

NORMAN – Oklahoma men's basketball head coach Porter Moser announced the signing of incoming freshman Luke Northweather Monday.

"Luke is a modern-day five that fits our system perfectly," said Moser. "He can shoot with range, pass on the permitter, has great IQ and is extremely skilled."

Northweather, a 6-10 forward from Blair Oaks High School in Jefferson City, Mo., is Oklahoma's fourth addition to the 2022 signing class, joining Milos Uzan, Otega Oweh and Benny Schröder. He is a three-star prospect by 247Sports and is the No. 6 rated player in Missouri.

Northweather was named the 2021-22 Gatorade Missouri Boys Basketball Player of the Year and averaged 29.2 points, 11.4 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 2.4 blocks and 2.0 steals per contest. He led the Falcons to a 26-2 record last season and to the Missouri Class 4, District 9 Championship game.

The senior forward shot 71.6 percent from the field and 38.8 percent from deep. He concluded his high school career with a school record 2,018 points and was a two-time Tri-Country Conference Player of the Year. Northweather scored 51 points in a game last season for Blair Oaks and set the program's single-game point record.

"He had a dominating senior year and gives us tremendous size," said Moser. "Luke is all about winning and is a sponge when it comes to learning. I see him having rapid growth as a player when he gets to Norman and am excited to add him to the team."

The four incoming freshmen are joined by returners Bijan Cortes, C.J. Noland, Tanner Groves and Jacob Groves. The Sooners announced the signing of transfer Joe Bamisilie May 9.

Uh, let's hope it's just a very careless oversight that they forgot to mention Jalen Hill as a returning player.

Deep 3 point range
Ability to put the ball on the floor and get to the rim
Good court vision
Willingness to dunk in traffic
Low post footwork

What I didn't see
Defense
Rebounding

Those are going to be the deciding factors on whether Luke plays a lot or not much.
