Recruiting Roundup - Offense

Highlights and updates from the offensive side of the 2017 recruiting class.

Rob Ferguson-USA TODAY Sports

While the players enjoy spring break, the Oklahoma State coaching staff will have plenty to keep them busy on the recruiting front.

Last week we looked at some of the recruiting updates and offers made to defensive prospects. Today, let's look at some of the offensive recruits that Gundy and company have an eye on.

Tyrell Shavers

This young man has had quite the week.

Shavers, four-star wide receiver from Lewisville HS (Lewisville, TX) isn't lacking in the measurables department. First off, there's his size. 247Sports lists Shavers as 6-foot-4.5 and 200 pounds. But other recruiting sites have him as tall as 6-foot-6.

Oh yeah and then there's this...

Shavers took part in the Nike Opening Camp in Dallas this weekend and was named an MVP.

Oklahoma State can always use a rangy deep-ball threat and the coaching staff hopes Shavers can be that guy.

Note: After his performance at the the Nike Opening this past weekend, Shavers was bumped to a four-star recruit and today picked up an offer from Alabama.

Check out his Hudl highlights.

Eno Benjamin

Oklahoma State offered four-star running back Eno Benjamin last month. This week Benjamin named OSU in his Top 10.

The 5-foot-10, 204-pound back from Wylie East HS (Wylie, TX) is currently ranked the 13th running back in the nation and 26th overall prospect in the state of Texas by 247Sports.

Here are his stats per 247Sports.

Check out Benjamin's Hudl highlights.

Cam Akers

This four-star prospect was offered by Gundy and co. about a month ago after de-committing from Alabama. The Cowboys will have plenty of competition for his services.

The quarterback from Clinton HS (Clinton, MS) put up some eye-popping numbers from behind center but is being recruited as the No. 3 running back in the nation per 247Sports.

Have a look.

Whether OSU can sign him as a running back, QB or equipment manager, Mike Gundy would just be happy to get him on campus.

Here are his Hudl highlights.

Jelani Woods

The Cowboys have offered 6-foot-6, 215-pound dual-threat quarterback, Jelani Woods. Woods, a three-star prospect per Rivals, hails from Cedar Grove HS (Ellenwood, GA).

Woods' offer sheet also includes Michigan and South Carolina among others.

Check out Woods' Hudl highlights.

The Pokes continue to build their depth along the offensive line. Here are a couple of four-star tackles that OL coach Greg Adkins hopes will join recently committed three-star in-state tackle, Adrian Wolford in the 2017 class.

Grayson Reed

The Cowboys have offered a four-star tackle from Cypress Creek HS (Houston, TX).

At 6-foot-5, 295 pounds, Reed has the size to compete early. He holds offers from most of the Big 12 and Texas schools including Baytor, TCU, UT, A&M and Oklahoma.

Per 247Sports, Reed is the 29th ranked offensive tackle in the nation and 32nd ranked overall Texas prospect.

Check out Reed's Hudl highlights.

Henry Bainivalu

Coach Adkins has been racking up the frequent flyer miles as of late. The Cowboys offered four-star tackle Henry Bainivalu from Skyline HS (Sammamish, WA).

Check out CRFF's post here which includes Scout's interview with the high school junior.

Bainivalu moves well on his feet and has good hands. Even at his size, he isn't just pancaking smaller defenders. He stays engaged in protection and pushes a good hole in running schemes.

Bainivalu's solid technique should translate as he moves up in competition.

Here are Bainivalu's Hudl highlights from his sophomore year. .
