One of Class 6A's best shooters is committed to Oklahoma men's basketball.

Tulsa Booker T. Washington guard Trey Phipps announced his verbal pledge to the Sooners in a tweet Thursday.

The 6-foot-1 shooting guard originally committed to Tulsa in early May but backed off from his decision on July 21.

Phipps isn't a well-known prospect; his list of offers only includes OU, Tulsa and Oral Roberts. ranks the rising senior, however, as a three-star prospect.

Phipps' recruitment could pick up if he continues to shoot the three-ball consistently well during his senior season.

As a junior last season, he helped Booker T. Washington win the 6A state title.

He poured in 17 points on 3-of-6 shots from the three-point line in a 61-59 win over Southmoore in the state semifinal round.

He then exploded for 42 points in the 6A state championship game. Phipps drained 8-of-12 three-pointers in the 82-70 win over Putnam City North.

Phipps also plays alongside fellow 2020 prospect and OU target Bryce Thompson, who ranks the No. 18-ranked player in the country and a five-star prospect.

For now, Phipps is OU's only Class of 2020 commitment after the Sooners added seven players during the 2019 cycle.
