Coaches on the Road
The bye week presented a great opportunity for the coaches to hit the road to visit prospects and current commitments. Coach Gundy traveled to Edmond Thursday night to catch the 56-21 Jenks victory over Edmond Sante Fe.
Gundy was presumably on hand to check out current OSU commit and Jenks Wide Receiver Dillon Stoner, as well as Sante Fe Safety Calvin Bundage who is still uncommitted. Stoner finished the night with five catches for 128 yards and a touchdown.
Bundage is a three-star prospect and widely considered one of the best players in the state. Calvin currently holds offers from several schools including, TCU, KSU, Texas Tech, Iowa State, Kansas, Arkansas, Iowa, Tennessee, and Michigan. As you can tell in the Hudl highlights from Thursday night, Bundage was making plays all over the field.
On Friday, Coach Gundy attended the John Marshall vs. Sulpher game to check out Marshall 6-6 350 lb Defensive Tackle Tramonda Moore.
Moore is currently ranked 155 on the ESPN300, and is listed as the top Offensive Tackle Prospect in the state. Holding over 15 different offers from FBS schools (including OSU, OU, and TCU from the Big 12), Moore shed some light on where he is at in the recruiting process with Scout.com.
"I would say the schools that stand out so far are Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, TCU, Alabama, Arizona State, UCLA, Auburn, and Florida State," Moore informed. "I have been on visits this season already to TCU, OSU and Missouri (official visit)."
With the apparent struggles on the offensive line this season, the Pokes could definitely use another talented player at offensive tackle. Moore finished the game with 4 tackles including one tackle for a loss in the 37-19 win.
Coach Glenn Spencer traveled to the Edison vs. Collinsville matchup to see 2017 commit Levi Draper in action. Draper is ranked 143rd on the ESPN JR300 and the 4th overall inside linebacker. Unfortunately, Levi's night was cut short after suffering a broken nose during the game.

New Scholarship Offers for 2017 Prospects
The Cowboys offered a pair of scholarships last week to Running Back Bruce Jordan-Swilling out of New Orleans, LA and Defensive Tackle Damion Daniels from Dallas, TX.
Bruce Jordan-Swilling is a four-star running back playing for Brother Martin High School, and is ranked 109th on the ESPN JC300. Bruce holds offers from OU, LSU, Florida, Florida State, Miami, Michigan, Ole Miss, and Tennessee among others. Jordan-Swilling rushed for three touchdowns last weekend in a 49-24 Brother Martin victory over Holy Cross. Check out his Hudl highlights from his sophomore season.
6-2 310 pound Defensive Tackle Damion Daniels out of Bishop Dunne High School is the younger brother of Oklahoma State Freshman Defensive Tackle Darrion Daniels. Damion is listed as a three-star prospect on Rivals and holds a scholarship offer from Iowa in addition to his OSU offer. Daniels has also garnered interest from OU and Texas Tech. Check out Damion's highlights from Hudl.
2016 QB Prospect to Visit Stillwater
Although the Cowboys have already gotten a commitment out of standout QB Nick Starkel for the 2016 class, it appears that OSU has scheduled an official visit for Berryhill High School Quarterback Nyc Burns. The 6 foot 5 inch Burns is in his first season under center for Berryhill, but he is quickly gaining attention from the in-state schools Tulsa and OSU. That interest should grow nationally as the season progresses.
Against Sperry two weeks ago, Burns turned in an outstanding performance passing for 409 yards and six touchdowns while rushing for 75 yards and another two scores. His performance earned him the News on 6 Player of the Week honors.
Through seven games this season, Nyc has completed 114 of 173 passes for 1635 yards and 18 touchdowns and just five interceptions. Burns will take his official visit to Stillwater for the November 7th showdown with TCU. With Senior JW Walsh graduating after this season, the Cowboys could use a dual threat QB on the roster. Check out Burns' highlights from Hudl.
