High Noon Highlights(12/4):James Washington was a diamond in the rough

Welcome to High Noon Highlights, a place to catch up on everything you missed in Oklahoma State Athletics.

NFL: Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh Steelers Philip G. Pavely-USA TODAY Sports

It’s high noon...

James Washington talks playing in small town:

James Washington sat down for a great interview with Campus Lore.

“Just being from a small school we get overlooked a lot,” Washington said. “We call ourselves diamonds in the rough at times.” “Because you never know what your passing on in those small schools.”

Oklahoma State fans are sure glad OSU didn’t pass him up. He ended being a Biletnikoff winner.

Darrion Daniels reportedly to graduate and transfer:

Late yesterday evening, gopokes.com reported that Daniels will finish out the season then head to Nebraska to play with his brother Damion. This came after Jordan Brailford and Justice Hill announced they would be headed to the NFL Draft. The O’Colly has also said a source told them that Daniels hasn’t decided where he will go and that Daniels going to Nebraska isn’t confirmed.

From the GoPokes.com report:

“Go Pokes has also learned that defensive tackle Darrion Daniels, who was injured in practice prior to the second conference and fifth game of the season at Kansas and had to have surgery on his finger will use his final season to graduate transfer to Nebraska and play with his younger brother. Daniels had told me during the season that he would not do that. He would request a draft grade from the NFL and then make a decision on whether he would go pro or come back and play his fifth-year senior season at Oklahoma State. He had also told that to head coach Mike Gundy and the Cowboys staff. A source told us that Daniels informed his position coach Joe Bob Clements Monday m0rning before the team had a bowl meeting. “

Kasey Dunn catches up with Ashton Lampkin:

Ashton Lampkin tweet this picture with OSU Wide Receiver coach Kasey Dunn yesterday.

Lampkin captioned the photo “Definitely In the top 3 of my favorite coaches at OSU @kasey_dunn it was good seeing you big dawg. Thanks for helping me as much as you did at OKstate even though I wasn’t one of your WRs. Much love coach always - “Compete”
