NEWSOK: Signing Day - Athletes First Player Kristian Doolittle signs with OU
As he watched his brother sign a letter of intent to play basketball at Oklahoma on Wednesday morning, Kameron Doolittle wore a white shirt with crimson writing — the crimson of Edmond Memorial, not the Sooners' shade.
Kameron Doolittle is a senior receiver at Oklahoma State, but he said it wasn't too painful watching younger brother Kristian sign with the Sooners.
“I'm a fan of my brother, regardless of the school,” Kameron said with the big smile that seems to be a trademark of the Doolittle family. “I'm proud of him.”
Kristian, a 6-foot-7 swingman, has been verbally committed to OU for nearly a year. He was a double-double machine last season for the Bulldogs, helping them to the Class 6A state semifinals.
“OU is like a second home for me,” Kristian Doolittle said. “They're really good this year, and they'll be really good for years to come. I'm excited to get down there and work as hard as I can.”

Athletes First-Kristian Doolittle
The biggest question for Athletes First was how they were going
to replace Allonzo Trier’s ridiculous production from 2014. Doolittle helped ring
in the next chapter of Athletes First, battling his way to one of the most productive
sessions statistically in Hampton. The 6-foot-7 Oklahoma-commit can score, rebound,
pass and defend at a high level, providing Athletes First one of the most dependable
swingmen on the circuit. His ability to implement his efficient floor game does wonders
for Jakolby Long and company, as Doolittle does the little things exceptionally well. He has
remained relatively under-the-radar up until this point, but with productivity like he had in
Hampton, he should at the top of scouting report moving forward.
The Elite 14 Showcase in Wichita Falls Texas, has become the measuring stick for Oklahoma prospects the past 10 years....
Jakolby Long 6ft4 2016 SG Mustang: Long is just a super solid player. He's not going to wow or dazzle you with high
flying dunks or snazzy ball handling, but he'll consistently make all the right plays....
Curtis Haywood III 6ft4 2016 SG Mustang: Last year, Tyson Jolly, wing from Putnam West, was a player who shot up the national rankings last year.
Haywood has the same potential to do so this year.
Brady Manek, the 6ft8 forward from Harrah, recently committed to the University of Oklahoma. OKHoops quickly found out that the Sooners
netted a diamond in the rough from small town Oklahoma. An inside/outside threat, Manek is the most versatile player to play high school
basketball in Oklahoma since Blake Griffin.....
Coming off of a good summer, playing on the EYBL 16U circuit, Tulsa Central guard Elijah Landrum showed no signs of rust this past
weekend at Wichita Falls. The 2017 combo guard is undersized, but his game packs a big punch......
