Talked to a few people at OSU today and learned that Bryce Thompson, a five star guard from Booker T. Washington in Tulsa, is scheduled to make an unofficial visit to OSU this weekend. Don’t believe that’s been reported but I did officially confirm if so.
Will probably write a little on this tomorrow, but wanted to drop that little nugget for the + subscribers. Pretty big news. He visited UNC on an official basis earlier this month as well as Colorado unofficially. Visited Texas the month prior.
Think the vibe around OSU overall is pretty upbeat with regard to Bryce now. UNC has irons in the fire ahead of him, Kansas is facing NCAA sanctions, Arkansas/Colorado considered likely out. Lot of people think it might be OSU, OU, or Michigan State. Big stretch for him on deck in his recruitment and OSU landing a visit is not insignificant.
OK, so a clarification here: This is actually going to be an official visit. Looks like, because he’s already made four official visits, that OSU is going to be his fifth. Per NCAA rules, that would also make it his final allowed official visit.
I’m a little confused on the official thing for the NCAA — I thought players could take five, but some have said you can take five as a junior and five as a senior. Either way, this will at the very least be one of his last officials (if not the last). Because by my math, he’s actually taken more than five. Kind of semantics really.
I’ve talked to people who feel confident it’s between OSU and OU. I’ve talked to others who feel it’s Michigan State or UNC.
I talked to the Boone twins yesterday, and they said Michigan State … then we talked it out and they said they actually think he stays in-state. If it’s OSU, they don’t know. He’s legitimately undecided at this point. And I think Kansas getting involved with NCAA scandal could change things. But … shoulder shrug
