In-state rival Oklahoma Sooners aren’t the only players Oklahoma State Cowboys will be playing host to this Saturday. At least four prospects will be in Stillwater to watch the annual Bedlam rivalry game, though I’m sure there will be far more than that.
No visit is bigger than that of three-star 2020 running back Isaiah Jacobs.
OSU needs to land a running back commit for 2020 (if not two), and Jacobs is one of their two top targets at the position. The Cowboys are battling the other schools of Jacob’s top five, including Arkansas, Maryland, Michigan and Ole Miss. It’s unknown where the Razorbacks stand after the firing of head coach Chad Morris.
Jacobs, an Owasso High School prospect, has rushed for 632 yards and six touchdowns on 76 carries. He’s also caught 11 passes for 160 yards and two touchdowns, helping Owasso reach the 6A-I State Championship game for the second time in three years.
OSU’s other running back target is four-star Daniyel Ngata, who was originally set to announce his commitment back in October. At the time, OSU was considered the strong favorite to land him. Now Ngata won’t announce a commitment until Dec. 21. OSU is still considered a strong candidate but Texas A&M and Arizona State are still contenders. OSU still feels good here, but whether they land Ngata or not, the Cowboys should do everything they can to get a commitment from Jacobs.
- Bryce Stephens announced on Twitter that he’ll be in Stillwater. The 2021 three-star wide receiver out of Oklahoma City, has offers from 12 schools, including OSU, Arkansas, Arizona, Colorado, Iowa State, Nebraska, TCU, Washington State, among others.
- Jeffrey Bassa, a part of what we’re now going to call the “Utah Trio,” previously tweeted he’d be in Stillwater for Bedlam, but has sense deleted said tweet. The trio includes Bassa, — a three-star class of 2021 athlete out of Salt Lake City — recent 2020 safety commit Nicholas Sessions and 2020 linebacker target Mason Cobb, who will make an official visit to Stillwater on Dec. 13.
- Three-star Outside Linebacker Jermaine Hamilton-Jordan. The 6-foot-1, 180-pound prospect from Kansas City, Missouri, does not currently have a scholarship offer from OSU.
- 2022 Defensive Back De’Kelvion Beamon from Shreveport, Louisiana is in town for an unofficial visit. He took advantage of the uni-photo op.
