The class of 2023 is shaping up to be one that has a chance to produce a lot of prospects that will be major impact players at the next level.  The state of Oklahoma has seen an uptick in talent over the past several years and Brandon Garrison is using his time in the gym to make sure that his name will be mentioned not only as one of the best in the state, but as one of the best nationally as well.  The 6’9 F/C out of Oklahoma City has a tremendous upside in terms of long-term potential and he is just starting to scratch the surface.

The Del City High big man has a natural feel for the game at his size.  He is very crafty around the basket and uses his frame to overpower smaller defenders.  He has an extremely high motor and above average IQ for this stage of his career.  He finishes at the rim very well and can get it done with either hand.  His passing skills are still improving but does possess the ability to find open teammates when he gets doubled in the post, as well as great outlet passes to start the break.  His athleticism at his size is what truly sets him apart at the high school level.  He loves to play above the rim and when his teammates lob it up to him in the half court or open court a jaw dropping dunk is usually the result.  The biggest area where he has begun to improve is his outside shooting.  He has extended his range over the last year and is now more comfortable shooting the ball facing up.  This is what makes him such an intriguing prospect in today’s era of basketball.  He has also put in countless time on the court to improve his free throw shooting.

Defensively, his teams consider him the anchor on the floor.  He is vocal and active and does not take any plays off.  He is one to dive on the ground for loose balls as well as fight to get offensive rebounds.  He has sound defensive principles, and this is what keeps his out of foul trouble compared to other forwards his age.  He boxes out well and has the speed and quickness to stay with smaller opponents in situations where he must switch on screens.  He is a great shot blocker as well as someone who can alter shots of offensive player who challenge him the paint.  These tangible skills he possesses have started to get major division one programs to begin paying attention.

He was very impressive this past summer travel season where he competed with Blake Griffin Elite in the EYBL.  He currently holds offers from Kansas, Oklahoma St, Oklahoma, SMU, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Tulsa and Houston.  This list will only grow moving forward as we fully expect for him to continue to improve his skills and be an impact player on the court.
