Bryson Warren becomes latest 5-star recruit to sign with Overtime Elite
Bryson Warren, the 14th-ranked prospect on the 2023 ESPN 60, has signed with Overtime Elite, he announced Thursday on social media.
Warren turned down offers from numerous high-profile schools, including Kansas, Memphis, Auburn, Arkansas, and Tennessee.
The 6-foot-2 guard is the 20th player to ink a deal with the newly formed league and joins fellow five-star 2023 recruit Tyler Smith.
Overtime Elite later added four-star prospect Dominick Barlow to its roster, aiming to have 24 players for its inaugural campaign kicking off later this fall.
"It's hard to imagine a player as developed as Bryson at such a young age. But in addition to his natural talent, the young man puts in the work and leads by example," said Overtime Elite head coach and head of player development Kevin Ollie in a statement.
"That's exactly what you want and need in a point guard - level five energy all the time. I can't wait to coach the total person."
Warren is the reigning Arkansas High School Player of the Year, and he registered 24.1 points, 3.7 assists, 3.5 boards, and 2.5 steals per game last season.
The 16-year-old is currently not eligible to be drafted until 2024, but he could be selected in 2023 if he graduates high school early.
