Oklahoma State men’s basketball coach Mike Boynton pushed his 2019 recruiting class further up the rankings on Thursday, gaining the commitment of South Garland, Texas, shooting guard Chris Harris Jr.

Harris made his announcement on social media Wednesday afternoon, picking the Cowboys over Texas Tech and Texas A&M.

The 6-foot-3 shooting guard is rated as a four-star prospect and the No. 20 shooting guard in the class by Rivals.com. His addition elevated OSU to No. 19 in Rivals’ team recruiting rankings.


Harris is the fifth player in OSU’s class, and the fourth four-star recruit. He joins Tulsa Memorial twins Kalib and Keylan Boone; Justin, Texas, guard Avery Anderson; and Buford, Georgia, forward Marcus Watson in the class.

With the recent decision by Duncan Demuth to enter the transfer portal, the Cowboys have two more scholarships available for the 2019 class.
