We’re taking a position-by-position look at some of the top players in Oklahoma high school boys basketball. 

Our first list focuses on point guards. Eventually, we’ll dive into shooting guards, small forwards and finish it up with posts.

There are hundreds of standout boys basketball players in Oklahoma, and these lists are not intended to be comprehensive. Use the comments section to discuss the other point guards worthy of fans’ attention in 2021-22. 

In no particular order:

Cal Furnish, 5-11, FR, Crossings Christian

Furnish is just a freshman and is already one of the top point guards in the state. He’s averaging 16.1 points and 3.9 assists per game this season. Furnish has found success with his mid-range jumper. He has scored 30 points on multiple occasions this year and proved he has the clutch gene with a buzzer-beating 3-pointer to lift Crossings over Cashion at the Tournament of Champions.

“His work ethic, humility, willingness to learn are different,” said Crossings head coach Shawn Schenk. “Combine that with high skill and that is Cal.”

Kam Parker, 6-1, SR Booker T. Washington

Parker has nice size for a point guard and is strong, too. He has a smooth game and can score in many different ways.

After a huge summer where he gained multiple D-I offers, he continued his rise with a strong regular season for Booker T. Parker notched 24 points in an 80-77 win over Muskogee recently.

Aiden Todd, 5-10, FR, Bethany

Todd has been one of the best freshmen in the state this year manning the offense for Bethany. He doesn’t shy away from the moment, either, as the floor general hit the game-winner recently against OCS with five seconds left. In a win over Clinton, Todd finished with 17 points and six assists.

“This guy has spent more hours the last few years than most can imagine working on his craft,” Bethany head coach Quinn Wooldridge tweeted. “Looking forward to seeing what he can accomplish!”

Sebastian Perry, 6-1, JR, Heritage Hall

Perry is a great floor leader. He’s missed a good portion of the season due to injury but has shined when on the court. His return near playoff time is huge for Heritage Hall. Perry was the Community Christian Classic MVP after pouring in 27 points in the championship, 25 of those in the second half.

Perry’s 14 points helped the Chargers win the district championship over Harding Charter Prep. The guard currently holds multiple college offers, including a recent one from Southwestern Oklahoma State.

Noah McMullan, 5-9, SR, North Rock Creek

McMullan is one of the more underrated point guards in the state. McMullan is a terrific 3-point shooter and has unmatched floor vision. He averaged 17 points and four assists in the Byng tournament.

The star point guard currently holds offers from Oklahoma City University and Hendrix (Ark.) College.

“He’s a great young man,” his AAU coach Brandon Dubs tweeted. “I was thankful I got the opportunity to coach him for two years. If coaches need a do-everything floor general, they need to get out to North Rock Creek.”

Adante Holiman, 6-0, SR, McAlester

Holiman is one of the most prolific scorers in Oklahoma high school boys basketball history. He recently set a career high of 48 points in a recent close loss to Ada and is about to set the McAlester record for points in a career. Holiman signed to play at the University of Texas-Rio Grande Valley. On the season, Holiman is averaging 32 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 steals per game. He’s hope to help McAlester to their first playoff run in some time.

Holiman has a four-star rating from ESPN and received several D-I offers. He has a chance to lead his school deep into the playoffs.

Madden Padilla, 5-9, SO, Lawton MacArthur

He is one of the best pure passers in the state and has impressive ball-handling skills.

This season, he’s averaging 12 points and seven assists for Lawton Mac. For a sophomore, he has shown leadership abilities on both ends of the floor. He’s one of the best true point-guards in the state.

Jonah Jenkins, 5-11, SR, Cashion

The senior has been a constant for four years. He continues to shine, and win, on the biggest stages. Jenkins is one of the craftier point guards in the state and gets his entire team involved.

He had a team-high 15 points in the Wildcats’ biggest game of the season, a 54-39 win against rival Dale. If the Wildcats make a big run in the state tournament, it will be because Jenkins is leading the charge.

Tymier Adkins, 5-8, JR, Crooked Oak

Adkins is having the best season that you haven’t heard about. He is averaging 28 points and five assists per game. He is also a menace on the defensive end, averaging a whopping six steals per night.

The diminutive guard entered the 50-point club this season after his 51 point and 12 steal performance in a win over Marietta. He has more big games than just about anyone in the state.

Aaron Potter, 6-3, SR, Booker T. Washington

Potter has taken off as a prospect in Oklahoma. His big year has landed him multiple college offers. He’s had big performances all season but his recent 31-point outing in a win over Muskogee was one of the most impressive.

While some may list Potter as a SG, he is a great ball handler with other point guard intangibles.

Tanner Williams, 6-1, SR, Edmond Santa Fe

Williams has stepped into the point guard role at Edmond Santa Fe with ease. Williams is a taller, lanky guard who uses his athleticism to blow by defenders. He has a smooth step-back jumper and a nice 3-point shot. He’s shouldered a good portion of the scoring load for his squad this season.

In one of Santa Fe’s biggest wins of the season, Williams notched a game high 19 points to lead the Wolves over Edmond Memorial. His 6’6 wingspan allows him to play solid perimeter defense, too.

Tyreece Frierson, 5-11, SR, Tulsa Memorial, SR

Frierson has been one of the top guards in the state since his freshman year and more people are taking notice. The Tulsa Memorial guard has averaged over double digits since his sophomore year.

Frierson is one of the most efficient shooters in the state, as he simply doesn’t miss open shots. He’s averaging 15.6 points and 5.6 assists per night. Even more impressive, Frierson is shooting 55% from the floor and 40% from 3-point range.

Reid Lovelace, 5-11, SR, Crossings Christian

Lovelace has started every game for Crossings since his freshman year and has continued to produce. After hitting the game-winner in the state championship last season, Lovelace has averaged 15 points and four assists per game this year for the Knights, who jumped up to 4A. Lovelace missed a good portion of the season with an ankle injury but has since bounced back strongly. He netted 19 points in a win over No. 20 Bethany.

“He can do it all and is a phenomenal leader and teammate,” Crossings coach Shawn Schenk tweeted. “His knowledge of the game on both ends is unreal. And he’s a dog! He does all the little things on top of scoring and assisting. He’s led our team in charges for four years. He doesn’t miss blockouts.”

Arzhonte Dallas, 6-0, SR, Lawton MacArthur

Dallas is one of the most explosive guards in the state. Just recently, MacArthur beat Ardmore 69-63 behind his 22 points. The senior is currently committed to Seminole State College after a strong summer and school season so far.

Caylen Goff-Brown, 6-3, SR, Tulsa Central

Goff-Brown is another point guard with ideal size and athleticism. He is a human highlight reel with all of his high-flying dunks. Goff-Brown is a pure scorer, too, as he’s averaging nearly 21 points per game on the season.

He boasts multiple D-I offers and continues to star on the court, as he recently dropped 27 points against Webster.

Jeremiah Johnson, 6-4, JR, Norman North

Johnson is one of the premier prospects in Oklahoma. He’s extremely athletic and finished well around the rim. Johnson’s size is a true advantage, as he’s listed at 6’4. He has a smooth 3-point shot and has displayed range this season. After missing the end of last season with an injury, Johnson has put any doubts to rest with his incredible play this season. Just two weeks ago, he had 32 points and the game-winner for Norman North.

Evan Barber, 6-1, JR, Westmoore

Barber is another under-the-radar prospect who’s bursting onto the scene this year. The lefty has a quick release and a silky smooth jumper. He utilizes elite dribble combos to get himself open and draws so much attention that he’s able to use his court vision to get teammates involved. Before hitting the game winning jumper against Millwood, Barber netted 23 points in win at Edmond Santa Fe.

David Castillo, 6-1, SO, Bartlesville

Castillo is one of the highest rated prospects in Oklahoma high school basketball history. He received an invite to Team USA’s 16u National Training Camp. He recently turned in a 29-point effort in a loss to Union last week.

Castillo is currently listed as a 5-star and has offers from many of the major basketball programs around the state. He’s already scored over 1000 points in just 41 games played.

Jordan Warrior, 6-1, SO, Putnam City West

Warrior has been extremely consistent for PC West this year, stuffing the stat sheet for the Patriots. Warrior netted 14 points in the Coca Cola Classic Championship in Arkansas to bring the trophy back to Oklahoma. He was also named tournament MVP.

His coach, Lenny Burt, said “He has always shown to be the hardest worker and toughest player. He’s always been so talented.”

Dayton Forsythe, 6-2, SO, Dale

Forsythe is a do-it-all point guard that makes his team better when he’s on the floor. He had a near triple double during the first half of the season with 20 points, 12 rebounds and seven assists in a 64-38 win over 4A Broken Bow.

Forsythe is only a sophomore and is already putting up these types of numbers.

Garrett Redwine, 6-0, JR, Tuttle

Redwine has had a breakout year for Tuttle. He’s been the leader of the offense and has really taken a step forward in his ability to score the basketball this year. Heading into the month of February, he was averaging 14 points per game and shooting 55% from 3-point range.

In the championship game of the Bishop Kelley tournament, Redwine recorded an impressive 20 points and three assists. Tuttle is one of the tallest teams in the state, so the emergence of Redwine has been huge for the Tigers.

Rickey Hunt, 6-0, JR, Millwood

Hunt stars on the gridiron, but he’s also quite the floor general for Millwood. The star point guard has multiple D-I football offers but is a big reason for the Falcons’ success on the hardwood. He has countless highlight plays and will dunk over anyone. Hunt has also greatly improved his shooting.

Zander Baker, 5-10, JR, Putnam City North

Baker burst onto the scene this season at PC North. In a huge January win over PC West, Baker netted 25 points. He also drilled a full-court shot to send a game into overtime that appeared on SportsCenter. Baker has been the main reason behind PC North’s success, averaging 20 points, 6 assists and 5 rebounds this season.

“He’s getting picked up full court every night and his man has no help responsibilities the entire game,” said one of his coaches, Domaunique Stephens. “He still finds a way to get it going. He is a joy to coach.” 

Price Bradley, 6-3, JR, Bishop McGuinness

Bradley is a long, lengthy guard who can finish at the rim with ease. At the Southern Oklahoma Invitational, Bradley was named the MVP. In December, he notched back-to-back 30 point performances.

“He is having a great year for us,” said McGuinness head coach Jake Brown. “Price is a long guard who has developed a great outside shot and continues to be an elite finisher at the rim. This kid is a gamer!”

Kieler Young, 6-2, JR, Broken Bow

Young is one of the best pure scorers at the point guard position. As a junior, he’s already eclipsed the 1,000-point mark in his career. He did it in a game where he scored 40 points and netted seven 3-pointers.

En route to an all-tournament team bid at the Wampus Cat Classic, Young averaged 25 points per game and made 27-of-28 free-throws. Young’s efforts led Broken Bow to a district championship. He’s averaging 25 points per game shooting 53% overall and 45% from three.
