Rotnei Clarke is my best comp at this point. He can shoot the ball at a really high level -- off the catch or off the dribble and at all three levels -- and is deadly pulling up from three in transition. He's a smart, savvy player and a pretty good distributor.

Not sure what he can bring in the way of rebounding, steals, assists, etc. Not top notch athleticism but he seems to play within himself and, even though he doesn't look strong, he doesn't get bumped off his dribble or his shot too often. Knows how to take the contact. Not sure how he will be against big, athletic guards, but his shooting and the fact that he's a legacy means it's worth giving him a shot to see how good he can be.

Conley went to NSU. Was the leading scorer in school history for awhile if I remember correctly!

Conley Phipps played 2 years at OU before transferring to NSU. He played in 13 games as a freshman and 4 as a sophomore before transferring (he may have left after the first semester of his sophomore year). Averaged 4.6 ppg at OU, but is in the NSU hall of Fame.

Phipps, one of the most prolific scorers in NSU history, totaled 1,009 points in two seasons (1987-88 and 1988-89) to rank 17th on the school's career chart.

The two-time All-Conference player also is No. 1 in free throw percentage in a career (.845); No. 3 in 3-point field goal percentage in a game (.480) and 3-point field goals made in a game (6); No. 5 in scoring average in a season (21.6); and No. 6 in free throws attempted in a game (16).

Posted this on TOS, and this will date me, but I remember playing against Conley in a tournament in high school when I was like a sophomore and he was unreal. Could really shoot and had an incredibly quick release. Gritty player too. Averaged like 34 a game, without a 3 pt line, which was a LOT in those days, considering teams sometimes averaged in the 30s or 40s.

If Trey can play like his dad, in the way offenses are more guard oriented in 2019, we got a kid that can shoot. May not be a starter, but a good shooter and PG off the bench.

Lazenby wasnít a pure 3pt shooter. He lived at ft line in juco.

More of a slasher.

He took him for depth only.

So what all skills does he have? Great shooter, but is he a one trick pony? I’ve watched some highlights and the are all just 3 pointers. Can he tomahawk?

Getting a lot better at off the bounce. Heís playing high level kids all year all summer. Defense is better than what youíd think. Donít assume

Maybe best pure shooter in the nation. 6í1 ďitĒ factor. Gym rat.

Thereís more to his game than shooting from three. He may wow you more with his smarts than his athleticism, but heís not athletically challenged by any means. His MVP performance in the 6A State Championship game where he scored 42 points should tell you something about his ability to score.

This kid is definitely deserving of an OU offer. I would have been hacked if our coaches had not offered!

considering how much kruger loves guards with length, it tells me he sees a pretty good future for trey.

one trey down...

Is OU in good with the high level in state prospects for 2021? The one from Ada and I forgot the other one. I saw on Rivals a few had picked us for a PG from Allen, Tx. Forgot his name..

The other 2021 recruit is Trey Alexander, SG from Heritage Hall, nephew of former OU player Deangelo Alexander. He’s the other “Trey” Red Recluse was referring to in his post. I’m not familiar with the Allen, Tx PG you’re talking about.

Ranger I believe you are thinking of Keaton Page. Forte was right around 6 foot.

Phipps can really shoot and that is a huge deal in today's basketball game!

Manny Obaseki is the kid from Allen. Top 50 PG with really good athleticism & toughness. Think of a cross between Bienemy & Cousins.

If he's anything close to Phil Forte we got a steal and I will be more than excited. That kid was a gritty, talented, baller.

That makes two of us!

Phil Forte and Marcus Smart were like brothers. They made it clear they would like to be a “package deal” coming out of high school. Capel wanted Smart but he wasn’t too keen on Forte. OSU wanted both, and the rest is history.

I don’t ever want to lose a shooter like Forte again! If Trey Phipps is anything like Forte (and I agree with the comparison), we should all be glad he wanted to a Sooner!

With the three point line moving back and the game focusing on threes, you take players like Phipps. His shooting ability will Spreas the floor as well.

You're right, but Phil Forte was 5'11" with shoes on.

I think Forte was about as close to 5'7 as he was 6'.
