There were several recruits in Stillwater this past weekend for the Cowboy Day recruiting event. With another big visit weekend coming up, lets take a look at the new round of offers that went out after last weekend’s event for the class of 2020 and 2021.
New 2020 Offers
Darius Snow, Safety
This offer goes out to Darius Snow from Hebron HS in the talent-rich DFW area. Snow is a 6-foot-1 safety who styles his game after former Hebron and LSU star Jamal Adams.
Snow is up to 26 offers including Texas, LSU, Alabama and Michigan State. He grades out as a four-star recruit ranked 108th in the nation and the fourth-best safety. Like Adams, Snow is an aggressive safety who hits hard and has the ability to make plays near the line of scrimmage. He forced a handful of fumbles last season and is a solid tackler.
Troy Omeire, Wide Receiver
Another offer for Fort Bend ISD here. Troy Omeire is one of the most talented wideouts in the Houston area for Austin HS. He currently holds offers from Texas A&M, Texas and Alabama with A&M being the overwhelming favorite. It might be hard to pry Omeire away from the Aggies as Jimbo Fisher has done a masterful job of keeping the Houston area talent close to home in his first year on the job.
Omeire has good size for receiver at nearly 6-4 and 205 pounds. This makes him a good blocker and he has the ability to body smaller defensive backs in jump ball situations near the end zone. He has good speed for his size too, often getting behind the secondary for long touchdowns. He played a little cornerback for Austin as well, which is fun to watch in his highlight real although he won’t be playing there in college.
Jaqwondis Burns, Linebacker
This is a good offer to keep track of. Burns has a shorter offer list than some of the other guys on the list and Oklahoma State could have a good shot here. Burns isn’t ranked in the 247sports composite yet but holds offers from Oklahoma, Arizona, Baylor, Tulsa and North Texas.
The Terrell (TX) product is quick at the point of attack and a solid tackler as well. His hudl highlights also show that he’s pretty good in coverage as well.
New 2021 Offers
Cullen Montgomery, Offensive Tackle
Here is yet another offensive line offer for the class of 2021. This time its Cullen Montgomery from Episcopal High School near Houston. The 6-5 lineman has an offer list that currently includes Nebraska, SMU and TCU.
I hope you like breakfast food because Montgomery’s hudl highlights have a nice stack of pancakes in it, and we’re not talking about a short stack either. Most of the defensive lineman that he went up against were noticeably smaller than him, which played a role in his dominance. This could be a reason that he hasn’t been quite as highly recruited as other area talents but he has two full seasons of high school ball left as well. Episcopal has put out some good talent in the last couple years and Montgomery could be next.
Tommy Brockermeyer, Offensive Tackle
Another 2021 recruit, another private school offensive tackle offer. Brockermeyer hails from All Saints Episcopal HS in Fort Worth, TX. He has yet to receive a ranking on the 247 composite but he already holds an impressive offer sheet that includes Oklahoma, Michigan and Auburn.
At 6-6 and 278 pounds, Brockermeyer is a bulldozer for All Saints that finishes a good portion of his blocks with his defender on the ground. It is easy to tell that he plays with an edge and got into a few scrums in his highlights, a product of his dominance.
Solomon Wright, Defensive End
The son of former New York Jet and OSU Cowboy Kenyatta Wright, Solomon picked up an offer from OSU last Friday. Wright doesn’t have a 247sports or a rivals page yet and his only other offer currently is Iowa State. With two Big 12 offers coming in two days, Wright’s recruitment figures to pick up steam through spring ball before he begins his junior year in the fall.
I couldn’t find his height and weight anywhere but he dominated opposing lines, making most of his tackles in the backfield. He’s a strong interior lineman who uses a combination of power and finesse along with a good first step to beat offensive lineman.
Devon Martin, Tight End
The top tight end prospect in Texas picks up an offer from OSU. Martin is a versatile multi-sport athlete who catches passes for Mesquite Poteet HS and doubles as a forward for Nike’s EYBL Houston Hoops 16U squad on the AAU circuit.
The premiere high school basketball tournament in the nation is Nike’s EYBL Peach Jam, held in Atlanta every summer. Martin dropped 31 points in the championship of last summers’ 15U Peach Jam to lead Houston Hoops to a 67-63 overtime victory over the NY Rens. He could very well play both sports at the next level. Here is a little taste of the 37 points he put on the top-ranked 5A team in Texas. ⬇️

He’s the ideal size for a blocker and pass catcher at 6-5 and 240 pounds which is a big reason why he is rated as the top tight end in top states for football talent. Martin currently holds offers from Alabama, Georgia and Ohio State. He hasn’t updated his hudl page in a while, but this highlight will give you a good idea of his size and athleticism. Martin finished the year with 25 catches for 429 yards and seven touchdowns.
Quaydarius Davis, Wide Receiver
Gundy got an offer out to SMU commit Quaydarius Davis while visiting Kam Farrar at Skyline High School. Davis is heating up on the recruiting trail and holds offers from Houston, Minnesota and Ole Miss in addition to his SMU commitment.
Davis finished the year as Skyline’s second leading receiver in terms of yardage with 29 catches for 702 yards and eight scores. That’s an explosive 24.2 yards-per-catch. He is a smaller target but uses elite speed to haul in deep balls.
Melvin Swindle, Defensive Tackle
Swindle is listed as a defensive tackle on 247 but his Twitter bio claims that he plays on both the offensive line and defensive line. The is a good offer because Swindle is versatile and could fill whichever line needs more help, although we’ll assume that he will be playing for Jim Knowles’ defensive unit for now.
From Heritage Hall, Swindle is listed at 6-3 and 290 pounds. He used that size to dominate smaller competition last season as you can see in his highlights below. Similar to Solomon Wright, Oklahoma State is the second offer for Swindle in addition to Iowa State.
New 2022 Offers
Bear Alexander, Defensive Tackle
Back to Terrell for an offer for one of Jaqwondis Burns’ teammates. Oklahoma State is the second offer for the 6-3 defensive tackle with Illinois State being the other.
At 330 pounds, Alexander is an intriguing prospect. He doesn’t have the same speed as some of the other defensive tackles that the Pokes have offered but he is an excellent lane clogger and run stopper. Alexander was just a freshman last year so he has three years to improve on a solid season in which he contributed heavily for Terrell.
