Clark has offers from the likes of Connecticut, Oklahoma State, Arkansas, Memphis, Georgia and Vanderbilt. Marquette has been on board since he was a freshman, and OU coach Lon Kruger has been showing much more interest lately. He was also selected for a U.S. junior team that will compete internationally in Germany this spring.
Parker has OU, OSU and Tulsa already chasing him, with offers from Baylor, Minnesota and a few more. As a player, he's the unique one of the three, as a 6-foot-5 wing with a strong mid-range game and a long body.
Beyond the top trio, there are players like Edmond Santa Fe big man Shaquille Morris, who already has some mid-major offers and could take himself up the ladder in the coming months. Bartlesville's Jakob Hartsock is getting attention from Brigham Young, where older brother Noah had a successful career.
And several other players fall into the category of “maybe,” waiting to see what they could develop into.
But the stars at the top have answered that question already. With a season-and-a-half left to watch them, fans can simply enjoy the show.
