TULSA, Okla. – Tulsa men’s basketball announced the rest of its 2021 signing class on Wednesday.

That class includes for Pittsburg High School standout Gavyn Elkamil, who signed back in November to join the program next season.

Elkamil was an All-State player for the Purple Dragons in 2020. He averaged 24 points, 12 rebounds and 3 assists per game, also adding 2 steals per night. He signed with Link Year Prep out of high school and re-classified to the class of 2021.

“Gavyn is a young man I felt real good about,” says Tulsa head coach Frank Haith, “First of all, his character and who he is as a man, he is terrific. He got hurt this year, tore his ACL. He didn’t play this season. Prior to that, in terms of his talent level, he’s a 6-5 guy that can shoot it and can handle it. He’s got a great body already. He doesn’t look like a freshman normally looks. He’s coming along great with getting back to playing. He’s getting closer, but we don’t want to rush him. In time, he’s going to have an impact with our program, because I think his talent level is really, really high.”
