Bryce Thompson

Mike Boynton is back at it on the recruiting trail.

Just a couple of weeks after landing Texas Tech transfer Tyreek Smith, Oklahoma State has landed Kansas transfer Bryce Thompson.

Thompson, a Tulsa native, was close to committing to the Cowboys in 2020 before picking Kansas. Thompson is the third transfer in the Cowboys 2021 recruiting class, joining Smith and forward Woody Newton from Syracuse.

Thompson, a former 5-star recruit and No. 1 ranked player in Oklahoma, completed an injury-laden freshman season under coach Bill Self at Kansas. He played in 20 games, averaged 4.6 points, 1.5 rebounds and 1.1 assists.

He will team up with Avery Anderson, who recently announced his return to the program, and Rondel Walker, former in-state rival in the Cowboys guard room.
