Recruiting season never ends. Oklahoma State football coaches are hard at work trying to land the next class of Cowboys right now. This week, the focus seemed to be on offensive line and cornerback.
For a look at what Oklahoma State’s current recruiting class looks like, visit HERE.
First, Oklahoma State made the cut for three-star Manvel, Texas linebacker Brian Johnson.
The 6-foot-1, 183-pound, 2018 OLB also listed Baylor, Iowa State, Missouri, Indiana, and Louisville in his top six. Right now, 247Sports predicts Johnson will choose the Bears.
While Johnson has played OLB up to this point, he told Damon Sayles of 247Sports that he will play safety during his senior year. He says he can also play outside linebacker and nickelback at the next level.
Last season, Johnson totaled 62 tackles including six TFLs and three sacks, forced two fumbles and nabbed an interception. Feel free to check out his higlight reel below.
Multiple class of 2018 recruits were in Stillwater this weekend for visits.
That includes three-star defensive end Tyler Lacy, who reportedly was making his second trip to Oklahoma State this month.
The 6-foot-4, 238-pound DE from Sachse, TX also attended Junior Day back on April 15th, where he earned an offer from OSU. Lacy has offers from 11 other schools including Texas Tech, SMU, Houston, and Connecticut, among others.
As of now, 247Sports predicts Lacy will pick the Cowboys. I second that thought, since Lacy currently has his offer from Oklahoma State pinned to the top of his Twitter feed.
Feel free to check out Lacy’s highlight reel.
Also in town, 2018 two-star athlete Keiontay Coleman
The 6-foot, 167-pounder plays quarterback and receiver for Lincoln High School in Dallas, Texas.
Coleman does not hold an offer from Oklahoma State or any D1 school as of yet. If the Cowboys make an offer, it will be interesting to see what position they intend for him, especially with Coleman tagging Defensive Back Coach Tim Duffie in his tweet.
Check out his HUDL highlights below.
2018 three-star offensive tackle Owen Condon also made the trek.
The 6-foot-7, 300-pound, OT played left tackle for Bishop McGuinness in Oklahoma City. He holds offers from 17 schools including Oklahoma State, Kansas, TCU, Arizona State, and Arkansas, among others. 247Sports gives the Razorbacks the edge for the tackle’s services.
Condon made The Oklahoman’s All-State team after his junior season, after helping Bishop McGuinness average nearly 219 rushing yards a game. While OSU already has two OTs committed in the 2018 recruiting class, I expect landing the commitment of Condon is a top priority of Offensive Line Coach Josh Henson.
Feel free to take a look at Condon’s junior season highlights.
Oklahoma State is obviously focusing on adding a cornerback to the 2018 class. They made three offers to corners this week including JUCO CB Delrick Abrams Jr.

The OSU offer marks the sixth offer for the 6-foot-3, 180 lb. CB from Independence Community College. OSU joins Colorado, Mississippi State, Southern Miss, Arkansas, and UCLA in the hunt for the cornerback.
Last season Abrams totaled 30 tackles including three TFLs, plus three passes defended and three interceptions. Abrams was lightly recruited out of high school, but was an All-State First Teamer out of division 1-A Varnado, Louisiana.
Check out some of his highlights from last season.
Cornerback offer number two went to three-star Donte Burton.
Burton is a 6-foot, 164-pounder from Lawrenceville, Georgia. He has a robust 23 offers from schools like North Carolina, Kansas State, Louisville, Oregon, and Virginia Tech, among others.
As of now, 247Sports lists the Tarheels and Hokies as the favorites. However, Burton was previously committed to North Carolina, before reopening his recruitment on April 13th.

Finally, the Cowboys offered three-star JayVeon Cardwell.
Cardwell, 5-foot-11, 168-pounds, plays for Steele High School in Cibolo, Texas. He currently has offers from 18 schools including Vanderbilt, Colorado, Duke, and Ole Miss, among others.
Cardwell seems to be a recruit on the rise with his Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, and Colorado offers coming in the last two weeks. It’s not too surprising seeing his 2016 stats; 54 tackles including three TFLs, six pass break-ups, and seven interceptions.
Check out his highlights below.
Finally, OSU also offered tackle Kris Dike.
Dike is a 6-foot-5, 28-pound offensive tackle from Van, Texas has just four offers including Houston, OSU, North Texas, and SMU. Both SMU and UNT offered Dike one day after OSU.
Dike is obviously a player on the rise. Last season he anchored an offensive line that helped Van’s offense average 400 yards and 42 points a game.
