The highly talented twins out of Pine Crest High School, Amen and Ausar Thompson picked up an offer from Oklahoma State on Thursday.
“It feels nice to be recognized by Oklahoma State because I’ve been watching them since Marcus Smart went there,” Ausar told 305Sports. “He was one of my favorite college players.”
In their sophomore campaigns, Amen, 6-foot-5, averaged 16.9 points, 3.7 assists, and 7.3 rebounds per game, while Ausar, 6-foot-5, averaged 17.3 points, 2.6 steals, and 6.3 rebounds per contest, leading the Pine Crest High to a 20-7 record.
The Cowboys have already produced some top NBA talent including Smart and Hall Of Famer John Starks. “Tony Allen and Marcus Smart are known for their defense throughout the league,” Ausar added. “I think I’m a good defender and hope to become a better one.”
For the rising juniors, expectations are high for next season as they look to bring home a State Championship to Pine Crest High School.
