Star point guard Bryson Warren joins Overtime Elite
Overtime Elite struck again Thursday, this time signing star point guard Bryson Warren.
Warren is a 6-foot-2 point guard hailing from Arkansas. He was the 2021 Arkansas Player of the Year at Little Rock Central thanks to averages of 24.1 points, 3.7 assists, 3.5 rebounds and 2.5 steals while shooting 57.5% from the field and 43.6% from 3-point range. He had recently transferred to Link Year Prep in Missouri before joining Overtime Elite.
The young guard ranks 17th on the 247Sports Composite list for the 2023 recruiting class. Warren was being targeted by Arkansas, Auburn, Georgetown, Memphis, Tennessee and Michigan, among other schools.
“Bryson shows the foundational tools of an elite lead guard – vision, speed, craftiness, athleticism, shooting and leadership abilities beyond his years,” said Brandon Williams, Head of OTE Basketball Operations. “In his cerebral and competitive approach to the game, you can sense his desire to be the best at his position in the country. He’ll get the chance to show and prove that day in and day out at OTE, as he sharpens his game against the best players across 3 classes in the country.”
“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 Kevin Ollie, OTE Head Coach and Head of Player Development. “That’s exactly what you want and need in a point guard – level 5 energy all the time. I can’t wait to coach the total person.”
Bryson Warren is now the 20th player to sign up with Overtime Elite. These prospects will earn a minimum of $100,000 in salary and have opportunities to earn more with NIL deals. There’s also the opportunity for bonuses and shares of equity in the league.
