Junior Day: Fenimore Likes What OSU Offers

Bear Fenimore

Bear Fenimore of Round Rock (Texas) Westwood was among the list of impressive quarterback prospects making the trip to Stillwater on Saturday for Oklahoma State's Junior Day. Yes, he is a distant relative of Bob Fenimore, the great Oklahoma A&M football player of the mid-1940s. He is also a 6-2, 225-pound quarterback that has had very good tutors in the likes of Ty Detmer and Chris Weinke of IMG.

Last season, Bear Fenimore led his team to a 9-4 record and completed 181-of-305 passes for 1,686 yards with five interceptions and eight touchdowns. He also ran for 166 yards on 59 carries with two touchdowns.

"Things went great at Oklahoma State," said Fenimore when he called us. "It was great talking with the coaches and seeing the facilties again and even more close up (Fenimore was there for the Texas Tech game last season).

"We got to tour the campus and see the dorm apartments where the players live. I had the opportunity to talk with Coach (Mike) Gundy."

Fenimore, who made the trip to OSU with his parents, said he hung around a lot with recruiting coordinator Johnny Barr.

"I also spent some time with Coach Glenn Spencer. I know he is the defensive coordinator but he recruits Central Texas, and so I should see him in that process," added Fenimore.

Fenimore has attracted some attention nationally in recruiting, some really strong attention.

"Yes, I'm going to Cal for a Junior Day, and to Alabama," he said. "It was pretty good when I got the invite from Alabama, but normal. They had a Junior Day today, but I wanted to go to Oklahoma State and they have one later that I will go to. I also have invites from Boise and Tulsa."

Fenimore will be a prospect to watch, and no Oklahoma State fan will have trouble remembering that name.

Among other news at Junior Day on Saturday, also attending was Oklahoma City Douglass All-State defensive end Deondre' Clark. His mother was on Twitter and saying he was attending the event and would be at the OU event next week.

Clark's older basketball-playing brother Stephen has signed with Oklahoma State for hoops. Deondre, who had 22 sacks this past season for the Trojans, has offers from Oklahoma State, OU, LSU, Texas, Notre Dame, Texas A&M, Arkansas, and Mike Leach at Washington State.

We posted an update Saturday that listed Broken Arrow teammates quarterback Coleman Key and linebacker Gyasi Akem as attending. Akem picked up an offer from the Cowboys over the weekend, and now has offers from OSU, Clemson, Missouri, and Arkansas State.

Also, as reported by Scout and Fox Sports' Mike Coppage, standout Katy High School linebacker Jake Blomstrom was at the Cowboys' Junior Day. The 6-2, 225-pound Blomstrom is one of the top linebacker prospects in Texas and in the nation. He had 97 tackles as a sophomore and helped Katy to a state championship last season.
