Recruiting: Staley Prepares For Big Showdown
"I feel it's still early," said Staley. "We have a lot more that we want to accomplish with the playoffs, championship, and it really starts this week with Carl Albert. No, I haven't played in the fourth quarter yet this season. Our deal has been to play in the first half and then we've been watching the third and fourth quarters."
Staley said playing a four-quarter game won't be a problem this week. He saw a fourth quarter game on Saturday as he and a number of his teammates were at Oklahoma State's 41-39 victory over Kansas State.
Staley committed to the Cowboys in August and among his friends was cornerback Israel Escoe, who is also being recruited by Oklahoma State.
"Things went good on Saturday, and we saw a real good game between Oklahoma State and Kansas State," added the 6-0, 200-pound multi-talented senior. "It was good hanging with my friends. I also had a friend playing for K-State in Darryl McKnight."
Staley was wearing a black vintage-looking Barry Sanders jersey that had to make Oklahoma State fans feel good. "I was with my sister at Ross, going through the store, and I saw it," said Staley of the jersey. "It was 2X and was $24.99 and I thought I had to have it."
Staley said nothing has changed for him in recruiting. He is still committed to Oklahoma State but he said he does want to take some visits. "Yeah, I'm going to take one for sure and I have visits lined up to Tennessee and Kansas State, maybe Arkansas and LSU. Yes, I am going to visit OSU."
It is always a concern when a player visits other schools, but Staley said when he committed in August that he was committing only because he knew where he wanted to go. It is a concern, but to Staley the visits are just a part of it, and he said he will visit Oklahoma State.
