And VPL is the only one that matters because Ortiz and Manning are up and down like yo-yos and cannot be counted on for almost anything.

My only point is you cannot put all your eggs in one basket. And you need to get them to take a look see in order to get their signature.

Looks like OU is now following these 2 point guards on twitter...

http://www.espn.com/high-school/girl...orah-broughton

http://www.espn.com/high-school/girl...ylor-robertson

if you look at Zipporah twitter account it's easy to see why OU would take a look at her, being ranked so high is just a bonus, I think she'll end up at an SEC school. Robertson is a little under the radar but both kids would be a help to OU...

Not sure what Sherri has planed but it looks like she's been going after a lot of point guards in this 2018 class...

Guards, Guards, Guards.

We need to recruit and develop some inside players. Get ready for next year - it may be a long one. VP can play about half of a game, then is finished. Slow, not athletic, etc. We have to start looking at athletic inside players.

I believe OU is looking at a few transfer, it's possible one could be a post grad then they could play right away...

OU had interest in Amaya Brown, but she recently trimmed her list and is down to 4 schools...

OU hadn't signed a impact player in the post since the Paris twins... not sure that's going to change anytime soon...

You are being pretty tough grader on what it takes to be an impact post signee...VPL was a top 60-80 player in the country and a top 10 post recruit.

I think VPL may be the best recruit we've had sign and play since Abi.

Nicole Griffin was an effect post, and so is VPL, but OU hasn't had an elite post in a long time.

If OU was all big 12 caliber at PG/SG/SG you could handle role players at PF/C.
Defenders/rebounders.

Hoopgurlz ranked Vivi #96th overall and the #15 post.

Per her OU biography espn rated her #83 and #11 post. ESPN has changed WBB recruiting analyst since her senior year of high school
http://www.soonersports.com/ViewArti...B_OEM_ID=31000

Per Prospect Nation she was #63 nationally and the #9 post.

Rankings out of high school are totally meaningless when a player is approaching her senior year.

I also like Vivi, and she is somewhat capable. But she is too slow, not athletic enough, and can only play about half a game due to either conditioning or physical limitations. When she plays against smaller posts she does excellent, but she generally disappears against taller or athletic posts.

Until we recruit inside players who are 6' 5" or taller and at least fairly athletic, we will struggle to compete with the best programs. It's that simple.

6-5??
6-3 or higher. Like the Canadian prospect from 2019 Amihere who can dunk with ease.

Is Williston from broken bow any good? I saw it posted before that she's committed to Oklahoma st, but her espn bio doesn't show that... I'm not sure how the levels of Ok high school basketball is, but she is 6'4 and if you look her up on YouTube you can see she's pretty quick and athletic for her size... could be worth a shot.

She did commit to Oklahoma State last year. But she de-committed not long after, during one of many OSU losing streaks last year.

The fact is it wouldn't appear that OU is getting any transfers! And the schools that are won't see them hit the floor until this current 2018 class. I hope OU gets busy starting with this list! 150 kids are a lot of kids to choose from and if they could get 5 top 100 type recruits it could help the program tremendously.

OU is recruiting a few kids, of the 3 top 10 kids 1 has committed to Uconn, and the other 2 just dropped OU recently, so I think Sherri won't be signing any top 10kids, OU could land 2 kids in the 12-30 range, but at this time both girls haven't cut/ made any type of public list... that would be Catherine Reese and Zipporah Broughton.

Mac you put a lot of faith in mr olson who most will tell you is One evaluator with one man watching. Zip would be a good get but she is not a top 25 on prospects and being from Alabama I'd suspect they would of seen her many times. Olsen watched a kid who is going to a mid major and only has midmajor offers twice this summer and moved her to a top 50 I just don't believe these coaches who watch kids over and over can miss. I look at offers often before I look at ranks. There's a guard from Texas with several top 20 offers not anywhere near Olson's list it's an imperfect science so I would say hard to say OU will or will not get a top 25 at the end of the day put them on the floor. Ou needs bigs and they are leaving the board quickly.
