Oklahoma State Cowboys
Another interesting potential destination for Wheeler would be at Oklahoma State. The Cowboys are set to have talent once again in 2021-22 under head coach Mike Boynton, but would this make them a favorite in the Big 12?
The Cowboys will obviously lose presumed #1 overall pick in the NBA Draft Cade Cunningham, but return a roster loaded with talent. Headlining this group returning are guards Avery Anderson, Isaac Likekele, and Rondel Walker, each of whom averaged 7+ PPG a year ago.
Oklahoma State will already return an arguably loaded roster, but where would Wheeler fit in? While Wheeler could start for the Cowboys, adding a player of his caliber would give OSU arguably one of the top backcourts in the Big 12.
With the recent return of Anderson, the Cowboys remain with only two open scholarships for the 2021-22 season, but that number could be reduced depending on the pending NCAA decision still to be made surrounding the Oklahoma State program. Could Wheeler fill one of those final two spots?
Whether it’s Kansas, Kentucky, LSU, or Oklahoma State, whoever lands Wheeler will receive arguably one of the top pure point guards in college basketball. Will Wheeler take his talents to a favorite such as Kansas or Kentucky, or are the Tigers or Cowboys about to receive a massive addition to their 2021-22 roster?
