Paolo Banchero, a five-star forward prospect out of the 2021 college basketball recruiting class, has been offered a scholarship by the Oklahoma State Cowboys.
This report was relayed to the masses on the mean streets of Twitter by Rivals and Stockrisers reporter Jake Weingarten.
Both the Kentucky Wildcats and Duke Blue Devils have been strongly recruiting Paolo Banchero since he’s been around for recruitment, as are — and will, for that matter — most power programs in the country who think they have even the slightest chance to lure him to their campus.
Not only do all reputable recruiting service outlets have Paolo Banchero pegged as a five-star caliber player, but most tend to agree he’s one of the six (or so) best players in the entire 2021 recruitment cycle.
Many assume Banchero is leaning toward the Wildcats, especially after the following comments:
“I mean, it’s Kentucky. You know, they’ve been putting dudes in the league, getting to the tournament, getting to the Final Four, championship, all that, for 10 years now,” Paolo Banchero recently said after showing out at the NBPA Top 100 Camp in Virginia.
Nevertheless, the Oklahoma State Cowboys are hoping to do enough to land the forward. As we often note at CBBToday, only time will tell will the talented youngster eventually ends up.
