Weekend Recruiting Roundup: Spring Game

It was a big weekend for football and basketball

@tylerlacy85

The Spring Game is always a big recruiting weekend for Oklahoma State, especially for football. This year was no different with the Cowboys handing out multiple offers as well as picking up a two BIG commitments, both in football and basketball.


FOOTBALL

Commits

The big news of the day was the commitment of the top offensive guard in Oklahoma for 2018, Bryce Bray. He chose OSU over offers from OU, Iowa State, and Tulsa.


Cuts

The Cowboys made the final Final-8 for 4-star offensive tackle Darrell Simpson.

OSU made the cut along with Arkansas, LSU, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, LSU, and Texas A&M. Simpson is a 6-foot-7, 336-lb. tackle from Justin, TX who had offers from more than 20 schools.


Offers

Among the defensive players Mike Gundy and Co. made offers to this weekend was 3-star defensive end Tyler Lacy

The 6-foot-4, 241-lb. DE has offers from a dozen schools, including Texas Tech, Houston, and SMU.


The Cowboys also offered 2018, 3-star cornerback Tanner McCalister out of Rockwall, TX.

The 6-foot-0, 185-lb CB has offers from 11 schools including OSU, Kansas, TCU, Mississippi State, and Washington State, among others. Right now, 247sports has Oklahoma State as the favorite to land McCalister, making his recruitment one to watch moving forward.


2018 3-star athlete Sean Michael Flanagan picked up an offer from OSU.

Out of Charleston, Arkansas, the 6-foot-2, 180-pounder plays wide receiver and safety in high school. As of now, his only other offers are from Central Arkansas, Arkansas State, and UMass.

Since he is likely being recruited to play safety at OSU, here are his defensive HUDL highlights.


The commitment from Bray wasn’t enough for the Cowboys this weekend, as they also offered 2018 3-star offensive guard Tyrese Williams.

The 6-foot-3, 280-lb guard plays out of Houston, TX currently has offers from 11 schools including OSU, Utah, Cal, Tulsa, and UCF, among others. Williams is listed as a Center on 247 sports, so it will be interesting to see which position on the line OSU is recruiting him for.


Sticking with the line, OSU also offered 2019 center Branson Bragg last Thursday.

The 6-foot-4, 280-pound lineman also plays defensive end on the other side of the ball.

You can check out his HUDL higlights below.


Oklahoma State is working to keep the receiving corp stacked with talent well into the future by offering 2019 4-star wide receiver Demariyon Houston.

The 6-foot-0, 165-lb. receiver from Oklahoma City is part of the class of 2019, but already offers from Ole Miss and Texas Tech to go along with OSU.I’m sure his list will continue to grow over the next few months.

Check out his HUDL highlight reel.


BASKETBALL

On the other side of the ball, Mike Boynton got a huge commitment from Miami of Ohio transfer Michael Weathers. While he will have to sit out a year, Weathers will provide some real talent to the point guard position.

Speaking of 2019 eligiblity, Boynton also reportedly offered 2019 Forward DJ Burns

Burns, a 6-foot-8, 190-lb. power forward, is out of Rock Hill, South Carolina with reportedly 15 offers. He’s said to be leaning toward North Carolina. Burns averaged a double-double as a freshman.

Obviously Boynton and Lamont Evans are familiar with the area, so they are targeting talent. Rock Hill is also where Mason Rudolph played High School ball, so maybe he can lend a hand in recruiting the kid.
