While the state’s top high school prospect, Xaver Henry, won’t be in the field for the 2009 Faith 7 game, several other high-profile Oklahoma players will compete against the Texas all-stars in the June 6 contest at Oklahoma Baptist University’s Noble Complex.
Heading the 11-player Oklahoma roster will be heralded Daniel Orton of McGuinness and Kyle Hardrick of Putnam City.
Orton, who missed all but three games of the regular season with a knee injury, is headed to Kentucky. He averaged 9.7 points and 7.3 rebounds in an injury-plagued senior season. Orton missed all but three games of the regular season and led the Irish to the 4A state finals.
Hardrick, bound for Oklahoma, averaged 10.3 points and 8.6 rebounds for Putnam City.
A lesser-known Division 1 signee, Lane Adams of Red Oak, is also a member of the Oklahoma squad. Adams, who has signed with Missouri State, averaged 31.7 points per contest as Red Oak captured the Class B state championship.
Adams, who logged 3,251 career points, was an uncanny shooter his senior season, hitting 91 percent of his charity tosses and 46 percent of his three-point efforts.
Two Tulsa signees, Bryson Pope of Jenks and Tyus McGee of Stringtown, are also members of the Oklahoma squad.
