Recruiting never stops for college athletics, especially in the off-season. Oklahoma State coaches are hard at work right now trying to bring in the next class of players to don the orange and black.
The recruiting roundup is our way of tallying up all the latest offers and visits by potential Cowboys.
2018 Wide Receiver Gabriel Lemons
Words can't describe how grateful I am to receive an offer from OSU #gopokes #pistonsfiring @CoachGundy @CoachTimDuffie @CowboyFB_Elite pic.twitter.com/F7RdMawMvM— gabe lemons #24 (@LemonsGabriel) June 7, 2017
OSU is still looking for their second wide receiver commit of the 2018 class. They may have found it in 2-star, 6-foot-2, 175 lb. receiver Gabe Lemons from Coppell, Texas.
Lemons has five offers including OSU, Illinois, Air Force, Rice, and Texas State. Despite only receiving his offer from Oklahoma State on Wednesday, 247Sports is already predicting Lemons will pick OSU.
In his junior season, Lemons accounted for 604 yards on 42 receptions and seven touchdowns.
2019 Wide Receiver/Cornerback Jeffery Carter
Extremely blessed and excited to say that I have received an offer from Oklahoma state university #GoPokes pic.twitter.com/9TV4N8dVwg— | šçöbbÿ® (@jcarter2133) June 8, 2017
Oklahoma State made a scholarship offer to Jeffrey Carter of Aledo, TX. The 6-foot-0, 185 lb. junior plays wide receiver and cornerback. As a sophomore he tallied 217 yards and five touchdowns on 12 receptions on offense, and 14 tackles including one TFL, two pass breakups, and an interception on defense.
OSU is the fourth school to offer Carter, joining Texas Tech, Illinois, and Baylor, with all four offers coming in the last week.
No word yet which side of the ball Gundy and Co. want Carter to play on, but after a view of his highlight reel, I imagine he could play either side for OSU.
2018 Running Back Ta’Zhawn Henry
Top6! #Blessed pic.twitter.com/s8rP3R7W97— ᵀᴴ¹ (@TazhawnHenry) June 5, 2017
3-star Lamar High School running back Ta’Zhawn Henry announced his final six this week, which included Oklahoma State. The 5-foot-8, 175 lb. back also included Texas A&M, Houston, TCU, Oregon State, and Iowa State. Henry whittled his list down from 21 offers.
As of now, 247Sports has TCU as the overwhelming favorite with six predictions in favor of the horned frogs. Oklahoma State still has plenty of time to sway his opinion, as Henry isn’t expected to announce his final choice until August.
Last season, Henry rushed for 1,374 yards and 13 touchdowns on 175 carries. His yards and TDs were actually down from his sophomore year when he had 1,415 yards and 22 touchdowns on 144 carries.
Oklahoma State welcomed a number of recruits to camp this week including 2018 commits quarterback Spencer Sanders and safety Kanion Williams. There were also multiple notable 2018 and 2019 recruits who stopped in Stillwater.
2019 Defensive End Marcus Hicks
Had a great visit at Oklahoma State and was glad to meet @BigCole82 pic.twitter.com/4j7RAiikJg— Marcus Hicks (@harcus_micks) June 6, 2017
Marcus Hicks, a 6-foot-5, 230 lb. strongside defensive end from Wichita, Kansas made his second visit to Stillwater this week. OSU is one of five schools that has offered Hicks, joining OU, Kansas, Kansas State, and Missouri.
The fact that he has made a second trip to Stillwater bodes well for the Cowboys, though it’s no sure thing. This would be a huge get for the Cowboys as Hicks is considered the No. 1 prospect in the state of Kansas. A quick check of his highlight reel will show you why.
2018 Cornerback Phillip Dixon
Amazing time in Stillwater today @CoachTimDuffie pic.twitter.com/dLIUKZwrlT— PD Paradise (@phiilyy) June 7, 2017
At the moment, Oklahoma State does not have a true cornerback among their 2018 commits. One they might be interested in is 3-star, 6-foot-2, 165 lb. CB Phillip Dixon from South Oak Cliff in Dallas, TX. He made a stop in Stillwater on Tuesday.
As of now Dixon does not have an offer from OSU; his only two are from Arizona and Colorado State. However it’s still early, and the Cowboys could still make an offer.
2018 Center Tyrese Williams
Stillwater Tomorrow #GoPokes pic.twitter.com/lNto711u0N— Tyrese williams (@48tyrese) June 7, 2017
Oklahoma State 2018 commit Tyrese Williams will make a trip to Stillwater today. Williams commited to OSU back in May over 12 other schools including Cal, Georgia Tech, and Houston.
This visit, and how vocal Williams has remained on twitter in regards to his commitment to the Cowboys, should make OSU fans feel good about keeping the 3-star center on board.
2019 Offensive Guard E. J. Ndoma-Ogar
.@IHOP_75 -4-star OT E.J. Ndoma-Ogar says his best relationships with OL coaches R at these schools: UT, TT, A&M, OU, OKST, CU, UCLA & UNC.— Allen Perkins (@AllenPerkinsHD) June 3, 2017
New Oklahoma State offensive line coach Josh Henson has reportedly built a solid relationship with the sixth best offensive guard of the 2019 class. The 6-foot-3, 310 lb. OG from Allen, Texas has an offer from OSU, as well as 16 other schools including OU, Texas Tech, Arizona State, Miami, Colorado, Utah, and Tennessee, among others.
Along with OSU, Ndoma-Ogar has reportedly built a solid rapport with the offensive line coaches at Tennessee, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, Colorado, UCLA, and North Carolina. Considering he doesn’t have offers from the Aggies, Bruins, or Tar Heels, you can expect more offers to come his way in the coming weeks.
Considering how talented he is and the level of competition, OSU has their work cutout for them landing the kid. Though from how his tenure as OSU OL coach has gone, Henson might just be the guy to do it.
