Tyler, TX (Future150) -- While the state of Oklahoma is not typically known for its high school basketball talent, there are several intriguing prospects to take a look at this upcoming season.

1. Dashawn McDowell, 2016 G, Southeast High School:

The 6'4" point guard is a smooth player that has great size in regards to height especially for a point guard, and good vision in transition and in the half-court setting. He plays smart, does not force the issue with passes and drives to the basket. He also has a good first step and pull-up jumpshot. We would like to see him add more upper body strength and be more explosive, but right now he reminds me of current NBA player Kendall Marshall. Ranked #125 nationally by Future150, we are looking to see what McDowell will do this season at Southeast.

2. Reggie Chaney2018 PF, Tulsa:

Chaney is a special talent. At 6'6" with good athleticism and an impressive skill set, the freshman has a lot of upside. He plays with intensity and is very active on the defensive end as a help defender. He can bring his man out to the mid-range and operate with one and two dribbles to attack and score or shoot the 15 foot jumper. He needs to work on his ballhandling more because although just a freshman, you never know if or how much more he will grow, so it would be a good thing for him to develop more of an outside game. Ranked #21 nationally in his class, Chaney has a chance to be a high mjor player.

3. Trae Young, 2017 G, Norman North High School:

Young, who holds offers from Texas, Houston, and UConn, is a lethal scorer that shoots from about anywhere. Has great form on his shot, handles the ball well and is a solid decision maker with the ball in his hands. At 6'1", I would like for him to be more of a point guard than the listed shooting guard due to being very undersized if playing that position. He can create his own shot but does not get a lot of lift when shooting. Right now, he has high-major written all over him. If he can transition to being more of a point guard than a shooting guard, it will put his game to another level.

4. Jakolby Long, 2016 SG, Mustang High School:

The lefty is a great shooter that excels as a spot up shooter and in transition. He handles the ball well, not exceptionally, but good enough and spreads the floor for the teams he plays on. Has good upper body strength that helps him fight for loose balls and when driving the lane. We would like for him to attack more on offense but his ability to spread the floor and excel in transition as a shooter makes him a player to look out for this season.

Sleeper Pick:

Keyshawn Embery, 2018 SG, Midwest City High School:

I Just recently saw this kid at the Future150 Camp in Dallas. We were very impressed with his game. Good athlete and ball-handler that was aggressive going to the rim and finished well. He was a man amongst boys in some games he played and I was surprised when I saw he is just a freshman. Needs to work on his jumpshot consistency because his form changes, especially when he gets tired. He has potential to be a very good prospect and we will be keeping track of him this season.
