It was a busy weekend in Stillwater for Oklahoma State football with a lot of recruits in town.

On Saturday, the Allen High School Football team made their way to Oklahoma for a weekend trip making a stop at the University of Tulsa, before making their way to campus in Stillwater. They brought with them some class of 2018 and 2019 players.

A lot of the players seemed to enjoy their time in town

While the team was in Stillwater, Mike Gundy and Co. offered defensive tackle Jayden Jernigan.

The 6-foot-1, 270-lb. DT is part of the 2019 recruiting class, but already has eight schools including OSU, Southern California, UCLA, Texas A&M, and three other Big 12 schools.

Jernigan plays defensive tackle now, but actually moved from defensive end. He recently impressed at Under Armour camp, showing off his speed and quickness.

You can check out the highlights from his sophomore (!!!) year below.

Class of 2018 defensive tackle Hunter Woodard was also in town and received an offer from Oklahoma State.

The 6-foot-5, 296-lb. DT is from Tuscola, Illinois. Woodard, a All-State Honorable Mention, also has offers from Miami of Ohio, Ball State, and Illinois State. Oklahoma State was his first offer from a Power Five school.

2018 offensive tackle Grant Norton was in town from Camdenton, Missouri.

The unranked 6-foot-8, 258-lb junior is an interesting prospect. He is listed an OT, but starts and plays multiple positions for his team and on both sides of the ball including left and right tackle as well as defensive tackle and defensive end.

While Norton did not receive and offer over the weekend, it’s still early. Both sides seem to be interested, and with Norton meeting with Coach Henson, my guess is he’s being recruited for the o-line.

He does currently hold offers from five schools including Army, Bowling Green, and Central Michigan.

Meanwhile... two recruits named Oklahoma State in their final 12

First is 4-star safety Leon O’Neal Jr.

The 6-foot-1, 190-lb safety from Cypress, Texas accounted for 86 tackles, two forced fumbles, and two interceptions last season.

OSU joins Oklahoma, LSU, TCU, Florida, Alabama, Southern California, Clemson, Oregon, Ohio State, Texas, and Texas A&M. According to 247sports, Texas A&M and Texas are the favorites right now.

Check out his highlights below and you’ll see why he’s such hot commodity.

Second is 3-star running back Ta’zhawn Henry.

The 5-foot-7, 157-lb all-purpose back out of Houston had 1,374 yards and 13 touchdowns last season. What’s interesting is that Oklahoma State has not offered Henry yet, at least according to the recruiting websites. In fact, half of his final 12 haven’t made Henry a scholarship offer yet.

Joining OSU in his top 12 are Colorado, Washington, Illinois, Oregon State, Utah, Houston, Texas A&M, and Clemson, and fellow Big 12 schools Baylor, Texas, and Iowa State.
