Oklahoma State Football coaches are back out on the trail after spring game

Looks like the Oklahoma State coaching staff isn’t wasting any time. While college football spring practices/games have been wrapping up all over the country, high school football is beginning to get back on the field. Looks like Mike Yurcich, Joe Bob Clements and Josh Henson have been seen out on the trail, and you can bet the rest of the staff is out there as well. The 2019 class has yet to really get rolling, but all it takes is a few commitments before the rest of the class will start flowing in.

My dream scenario for the Cowboys is:

  1. Dax Hill (Tulsa, OK)
  2. Marcus Hicks (Wichita, KS)
  3. Branson Bragg (Crandall, TX)

These are all guys that good football players want to play with. I’d love to snag one of those cats.

We’re in for a huuuuuuge week in basketball recruiting

Not to make this a recruiting post, but this week is too big for Mike Boynton and the Oklahoma State basketball team not to mention.

First thing, 3-star power forward prospect, Maurice Calloo, has made his way from Huntington, WV to Stillwater, OK for an official visit with Mike Boynton and the Cowboys. The 2018 class already boasts two big men in Yor Anei and Duncan Demuth, though after losing Mitchell Soloman and Yankuba Sima, the team could use all the big man help it can get.

Tyrese Maxey is the biggest name that Oklahoma State is tied to, and we should all find out where he will be playing in college TODAY at 4pm CST. Maxey is a 5-star point guard out of Garland, TX (#1 player in Texas, #2 point guard in the country).

He is currently classified in the ‘19 class, though he has been rumored to be reclassifying to the 2018 class. Kentucky is favorite to win the Tyrese Maxey sweepstakes, but weirder things have happened.

Finally, we will also hear a commitment from 3-star point guard, Isaac Likekele this week. Likekele would likely be the lone guard picked up in the 2018 class if he were to sign with the Cowboys. I would say this is the commitment that seems most destined to fall the Cowboy’s way, however Texas Tech and UTEP also feel just as confident... So... Yeah. Who knows. At 6’4, 195lbs, Likekele has the frame to really dominate in the Big 12. Let’s just hope he’s making plays in America’s Brightest Orange, and not Raider Red.

This guy’s journey to the NFL is absolutely BANANA LAND. Mark Cooper (Tulsa World) did an incredible job with this story. Check it out!!!
