Need this one. 5 star. We've been on him for years.

Add him and 5 star Colbert in the middle.

Add them to freak athlete Cortes, shooting 57% from 3 on the year at Kingfisher.

then add collins or KJ adams.


My opinion. I see Trey going out of state.

Interview from this a.m.

https://stockrisers.com/2020/02/04/f...ools-involved/


Out of all the five-stars in the 2021 class, I’d say that Manny Obaseki has a chance at being one of the most underrated ones. When I say that, people usually say “How is a five-star underrated,” my answer is usually about how a guy that’s ranked in the Top-30 barely a national priority.

Regardless, Obaseki is prioritized by many in his region and is set to take an official visit to Oklahoma this weekend. He also said he wants and will take an official visit to Texas A&M and then plan more beyond those two.

He broke down some schools involved with Stockrisers.com

Texas A&M: “Pretty much the whole coaching staff have seen me and are very high on me, it’s been that way since the beginning. I have great relationships with coach buzz, coach lyle, coach jamie, and coach johnson. They’re heading in the right direction and now that they got my close friend Jax [Robinson] to start 2021, the future is bright.”

Oklahoma: “They’ve been one of the hardest working teams as well that’s been recruiting me. One of the first teams to reach out and offer me. I have a very tight relationship with coach hartman and coach kruger. They’ve always told me that I can be the main man and take over that program and I’m excited to go back.”

Alabama: “They came in around Late-September and I have a good relationship with coaches Bryan Hodgson and Nate Oats. They have been staying in contact with me and are in a real need of a guard. They believe I fit that role.”

Texas: “During the season, coach smart has been checking on me to make sure im just getting better which means alot to me. Coach berry as well has been hitting me and talking visits and stuff like that and i’m excited to see what they got for me.”

Texas Tech: “Coach Ulric and I already have a close relationship and i’m a major fan of coach beard who i’ve only met once and just that program itself is amazing. They talked to me about what I can turn to with the advanced development they have and teaching and just becoming a better person overall.”

He'd be coming in when this Junior class leaves. There'd be a lot of roles and minutes to fill.

Really emphasizing the "notcommitted" part.

Yep, 2022 class. Elijah Obaseki.

From a quick look around, he doesn't look a future OU offer but he's still developing (obviously) so you never know.

Elijah is only a freshman and a couple inches taller. Manny is a tremendous kid and will be a great get for any team!
He is huge for us and they are recruiting him as hard as possible.

High flyer, explosive, dynamic. All descriptions of ‘21 Manny Obasekii’s game. A strong spring/summer followed by consistent production in the school season are reasons Obaseki is a National name. We caught up with Manny after Allen’s Win vs Prosper in which he had a 12pt 4th quarter to seal the win.

“We were down in the first half and I wanted to take over in the 2nd (half) but at the same time let the game come to me,” Obaseki Said. “The defense was spread out so it allowed me to attack and make plays.”

In regards to his recruitment, two schools have been making a heavy push for Obaseki’s services and that’s Texas A&M & Oklahoma.

The guard from Allen took an official visit to Norman and talks about his experience.

“The visit was beautiful. The people there are very sweet and very genuine. They showed a lot of love on my visit and the coaching staff have told me over and over that i can come in and fill in the scoring role that will be missing when I graduate. The players are really cool and funny and I enjoyed hanging with them and hooped some with them as well. I loved it.”

OU currently has a DFW based point guard in De’Vion Harmon who’s starting for the Sooners and averaging 7.6ppg 2asts & 1.2 stls as a freshman. Manny talks about watching Harmon growing up and having the ball in his hands at Oklahoma.

“You know it’s crazy because I used to watch him growing up in person, on Ballislife, Overtime and just seeing his name on social media. Now I’m in the situation where I can do the same things and potentially better. He’s doing good at Oklahoma and he gets to make plays and I feel that plays a role in me liking OU.”

“Texas A&M have been very truthful with me I feel like. They emphasize love, work & trust… trust in one another and competing for same team goal,” Obaseki Said. “I’ve built a great relationship with the staff and they believe my skillset and my work ethic can take me to the next level.”

Obaseki talks about having the mentality to play for a Head Coach like Buzz Williams.

“I know you have to be tough minded to play for Coach Buzz (Williams) but I definitely can and one thing I loved when talking to Coach was that he genuinely cares not just what goes on the court but off it for me and my maturation. He preaches love, work and trust like I said before and I think A&M is a place I would definitely thrive in.”

Manny plans on taking an official visit to Texas A&M in the upcoming months but also has been hearing some from Texas Tech, Arkansas, Alabama, Texas, TCU and Oklahoma State was in attendance at his game vs Prosper. He’s also recently received interest from Oregon, Ohio State, Depaul & UCLA. A decision potentially can come in the summer but realistically will arrive in the fall. We believe Texas A&M & Oklahoma are ahead of the pack at this stage but stay tune for news and notes on Texasboysbasketball.com
