Steve Smith
Oakwood Athletics Director & LA Sparks Assistant Coach

Oliver is a very proficient scorer at all three levels. A knock down 3pt shooter with size at the guard position who can also rise above smaller defenders with a deadly mid-range game and who also finishes strong at the rim. Oliver averaged 17 points, 11 rebounds and 3 assists per game during his Junior high school season and is projected to be a Mid Major Division 1 NCAA basketball recruit this upcoming season.

Coach Jesse Edwards
IMG Academy - Brandenton, Florida

Oliver is a Swiss Army Knife on the court. He can play and guard multiple positions. He is the type of player that will give you 100% every single game and is also a leader by nature with his presence and effort level. Oliver is tough too. I’ve seen him play through countless injuries for the good of the team. As a young man Oliver is a very well spoken and intelligent presence both on and off the court. He was part of our family at IMG and we miss him. Any coach will be lucky to have him as a part of their program.

Robert Icart
Executive Director BTI Hoops

Oliver is one of the most exciting, versatile and continually improving prospects in the BTI program. At 6'6", he has the size, skill level and advanced basketball IQ to play multiple positions at the next level. His three point shooting is already impressively consistent from the college three point line and his improved handling has added further offensive creativity to his game. This past season he has also shown the ability to lead the break and make players better with his passing skills as a point forward.

Coach Austin Pope
BTI Hoops U-17

I’ve coached Oliver for the last 2 seasons for AAU and he’s been my most college-ready player. High IQ and understanding for the game. Shows his versatility every play on both ends. Guarding all positions on defense. He’s an outstanding rebounder, and his most impressive quality is pushing the break, and his passing ability is high level for a player of his size. Sky is the limit for Oliver. Can’t wait to see where his career continues to go.
