Kristian Doolittle commits to OUKristian Doolittle commits to OU

Edmond Memorial product becomes second member of 2016 class

Everybody’s happy. The Oklahoma basketball coaching staff got its wish and Edmond (Okla.) Memorial prospect Kristian Doolittle doesn’t have to deal with any type of recruiting pressure.

Doolittle, a 6-foot-6 prospect for the Class of 2016, became OU’s second commit for the class, he confirmed Tuesday afternoon.
Picking today might have surprised Edmond Memorial coach Shane Cowherd, but this has been a long time coming.

“The OU coaches started talking with Kristian when he was a freshman,” Cowherd said. “They offered him at the end of his sophomore season. He really exploded over the summer, and I know the OU coaches were anxious to try to get him before he really exploded.”

For the most part, Doolittle is an OKPreps secret, but the secret is out now that he has pledged to Lon Kruger and the Sooners.

It’s rare for anyone to play varsity as a freshman at Edmond Memorial under Cowherd, but Doolittle is one of those guys who did just that.

Last year’s numbers don’t sound incredible on first glance, but Cowherd said they’re the best numbers he’s had from a sophomore at 16 points and nearly nine rebounds per game.

“With the competition that we play, those are some legitimate numbers,” Cowherd said. “He’s a kid that doesn’t need to have a lot of attention. He felt comfortable in the situation and really likes the OU staff.”

It didn’t hurt OU’s chances with him having point guard Jordan Woodard on the team, also from Edmond Memorial.

Doolittle joins four-star point guard Payton Pritchard as the two early commitments for OU for 2016. When it came down to it, playing in his backyard was too good to pass up.

“I thought it might happen before Christmas,” Cowherd said. “He’s excited and knows it’s a good fit for him. He really likes the idea of playing close to home. That was a big deal to him.”

Doolittle averaged 7.3 points in 15 games playing for Athletes First on the EYBL circuit this summer. Athletes First is the premier team for recruits from the state of Oklahoma.
