OSU Coaches Hit The Recruiting Trail

For the second time in a span of four weeks the Oklahoma State coaches have the chance to hit the road recruiting. OSU has 22 verbal commitments with a couple of possible opportunities to count back players that can enroll at midterm. This week is also a time where coaches will get out to watch players that are already verbally committed in the Cowboys' class.

We are pretty sure that Cowboys offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich is heading to South Carolina to see quarterback pledge Mason Rudolph. Rudolph and his Northwestern teammates are at home in Rock Hill, S.C., to host Clover on Friday night. Rudolph is also scheduled to be in Stillwater the next Saturday, Oct. 19, to watch Oklahoma State in the homecoming game against TCU.

We don't know which coaches will be attending the Class 6A showdown game between top-rated Class 6A Jenks and No. 3 Broken Arrow on Friday night but we would expect at least a couple to make the trip to Jenks.

It is likely that head coach Mike Gundy could take in that contest. The game features three Cowboys pledges and two other players with OSU offers. Running back Devon Thomas and linebacker Gyasi Akem of Broken Arrow and Jenks safety Dylan Harding are already committed. Jenks safety Steven Parker and Jenks 2015 defensive tackle prospect Marquise Overton also have OSU offers.

OSU safeties coach Tim Duffie is heading to the Dallas area to watch safety prospect Jordan Wyatt of Wylie East. Wyatt was in Stillwater for the win over Kansas State last Saturday. He has been committed to SMU.

Defensive coordinator Glenn Spencer, who on the last bye week saw now committed linebacker Devante Averette at Ellsworth C.C. in Iowa, will head east. He watched another couple of junior college prospects in safety Josh Keys and star linebacker prospect Derick Moncrief at Mississippi Gulf Coast C.C. in their 48-7 win over Southwest Mississippi.

Spencer will work his way back home through Louisiana, watching New Orleans (Edna Karr) commitments in corner Juwan Offray and defensive tackle Joyan Williams. Spencer will most likely check out River Ridge Curtis linebacker Kenny Young too.

It would be expected that other assistants like receivers coach Kasey Dunn, inside receivers coach Jason Ray, defensive line coach Joe Bob Clements and cornerback coach Van Malone will be in Texas. Malone, for sure, will be in the Houston area. You can bet Joe Wickline will be somewhere watching an offensive lineman, or two or three.

Somebody, possibly Jason Ray, will probably be at new slot/offensive skill athlete commitment Tyreek Hill's game on Saturday as Garden City (Kan.) Community College will host Highland C.C. in a Jayhawk Conference contest.
