Offray Gets Offer, Commits After Camp


Posted Jun 9, 2013


Sometimes it really is easy but you have to be talented enough and ready to seize the moment. Cornerback Juwan Offray of New Orleans (Edna Karr) was in Stillwater for Oklahoma State's one-day minicamp Saturday. The 5-11, 170-pounder that runs 4.5 is athletic enough but it was his attitude in drills that had the Oklahoma State coaching staff ready to offer Offray after the camp concluded.

"I was scaring the receivers," said Offray, who said he was frustrated that people weren't seeing him for the player he is. "I was coming back to the front of the line again and I could see receivers, in their eyes, they didn't want to go against me.

"I came today with the attitude that I was going to let it out and do all I could. I have just felt people haven't paid attention to me and the player that I am."

He was a player Saturday who excelled in the drills and was really dominant in the one-on-one work toward the end of the camp.

"I was going to showcase my talent," said Offray, who added that the Cowboys offered after the camp and he didn't waste anytime in accepting. "I don't want to miss out, and I spoke with Coach (Van) Malone, Coach (Glenn) Spencer, and Coach (Mike) Gundy."

Offray was part of a van of coaches and players that drove from New Orleans to Stillwater, and as we spoke to him Saturday night they were making their way back to NOLA.

"It was me, Donnie Alexander, Joyan Williams, and Jaevon Walton from Karr, and Andre Fuller from Neville, and Corey Turner (from Millar McCoy Academy)," he added.

We agreed to talk to Offray more later but suffice to say that the trip home was moving much faster and was much more satisfying as he has a destination set for college and his future at Oklahoma State.

Sometimes it happens that fast. Oklahoma State in a matter of a week is now up to seven verbal commitments in the 2014 recruiting class.
