It’s high noon...

Cade Cunningham can play basketball:

Oklahoma State commit (that still feels like dream) Cade Cunningham reminded fans over the weekend just how lucky OSU was to land him. He did this at the John Wall Holiday Invitational.

Yeah this kid is gonna be good. I can’t wait for him to get to campus.

More on Collin Clay:

Yesterday Oklahoma State landed DE transfer Collin Clay. Clay announced he would transfer to OSU from Arkansas.

The Oklahoman found out a little more about the latest Cowboy defensive commitment in a story Jacob Unruh wrote while Clay was still in high school.

The Clay family became whole as sons reunited with their father. A mountain of a man changed Collin, a scrawny kid strapped with asthma who was flirting with the wrong path, into something special.

At that time, there was little belief that Collin would become the football player he is now, a 6-foot-5, 255-pound defensive end committed to Arkansas who led Putnam City High School against rival Putnam City West on Thursday night.

But the unification of father and son pushed Collin.

“Just giving me that opportunity to be what I wanted to be and what I needed to be to them,” Rob said.{The Oklahoman}

David Glidden expected to be named tight ends coach at Memphis:

Former Oklahoma State wide receiver David Glidden is reportedly going to be named the tight ends coach at Memphis.

Memphis quality control assistant David Glidden is expected to be named the Tigers’ next tight ends coach, a source familiar with the hiring process told the Commercial Appeal.

The source requested anonymity because no official announcement has been made.

Glidden will replace Tony Tokarz, who is expected to be hired as a senior analyst at Florida State after one season as a full-time assistant at Memphis. Like Tokarz, Glidden was promoted from within after spending two seasons on the Memphis staff.

Glidden played wide receiver at Oklahoma State. As a senior in 2014, he led the Cowboys in receptions with 57 and was second in receiving yards with 866. After graduating, he joined the Atlanta Falcons in preseason camp the following season before being released. {Commerical Appeal}
