It’s high noon...

Samantha Show joins Athletes Unlimited:

Former Oklahoma State softball stand out Samantha Show just signed with Athletes Unlimited and had a great interview.

She hopes that being part of Athletes Unlimited will be an opportunity to not only play, but also give back. She wants to use this platform to inspire and give a deeper insight into life as a professional softball player. Beyond that, she hopes to show young girls all over the world that to #BeUnlimited means to “be yourself, be free, and be happy.” {Athletes Unlimited}

Was Tylan Wallace coming back the right choice?:

The O’Colly talked with a draft analyst to talk about the choice and what it means for the Wallace’s draft stock in 2021.

Benjamin Solak, a senior draft analyst for The Draft Network has been following Wallace’s draft stock before and after the injury.

“I remember speaking with guys who said, ‘Yeah we feel comfortable with him going somewhere between 30-50, 30-60, so Round 2,’” Solak said. “But No. 1, the class gets better across the course of time, we know this is a pretty historic wide receiver class, and then obviously Tylan has the injury and we’re viewing him now as a third, possibly a fourth.” {O’Colly}

Viktor Hovland is all of us:

Viktor Hovland showed over the weekend that even PGA Golfers have the same issues with their game that we all have sometimes. He was a Karsten Creek working on his short game and had some issues.

McCusker on list on players Baseball America wants to see come back:

Baseball America released their list of Top-25 college players than want to see come back in 2021. Making No.11 on that list was Oklahoma State’s Carson McCusker.

McCusker, at 6-foot-8 and 235 pounds, cuts an imposing figure in the batter’s box, and throughout his Cowboys’ career, he has put up the numbers to match. He hit eight homers in just 129 at-bats in 2018, and then followed that up by leading the team in hitting with a .311 average in 2019.

He was off to a bit of a slow start in 2020, hitting .235 through four weeks, but with five doubles and two home runs, he had still hit for some power, and it was only a matter of time before he broke out. Now, that breakout will have to come in 2021. {Baseball America}
