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

Oklahoma State Baseball is on an absolute tear:

Didn’t get a chance to come out to Allie P. Reynolds to watch the Cowboys sweep the Jayhawks? Have no fear! Oklahoma State Athletics has you covered with a highlight video here:

In their last four series, the Cowboys have gone a staggering 11-1. That puts them in sole possession of first place in the Big 12.

Oklahoma State Basketball offers rising star out of Norman:

Over the weekend, Oklahoma State offered a rising in-state prospect in Dayten Holman. Holman already has size on his side, standing at 6’4”, 170 pounds, according to 247Sports. The Cowboys might have an inside edge at him, too. Holman plays for PWP Basketball, an AAU team based out of Oklahoma, and he is teammates with the recently-committed Boone twins. Holman will assuredly have more offers come his way sooner rather than later, but it’s nice to see Boynton and Co. get involved early.

Oklahoma State Football offers rising 2021 superstar:

Jim Knowles is already hitting the recruiting trail hard. This weekend, Oklahoma State offered All-American inside linebacker Kendrick Blackshire from Mesquite, TX. As a 2021 prospect, we’ll probably have to wait a couple of years to see where Blackshire decides to go. Odds are, however, that he’s a big time prospect by the time 2021 rolls around.

Cowgirl Tennis claims No.2 Seed in the Big 12 Tournament:

The Cowgirls have had a fantastic season thus far going 18-3 (7-2 Big 12). This lead to securing the No.2 seed in the Big 12 Championship. The Cowgirls will take on the winner of the match between Oklahoma and Iowa State Friday at 3 p.m. The Big 12 Championship will take place in Austin Texas.

BONUS: James Marsden talks about Stillwater on ‘The Late Show’.

Over the weekend, Stillwater’s own James Marsden was on ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’. They performed a bit called Community Calendar, and it featured real-life events (like Calf Fry) going on in Stillwater. It’s a must-watch if you haven’t seen it.
