Three new offers are out to three different positions in three different states. All three are in the class of 2020 as another heavy round of recruitment starts to pick up with spring ball on the horizon.
Cole Thompson, Inside Linebacker
Thompson is an in-state linebacker from Norman High School. He’s got intriguing size at 6-foot-2 and 210 pounds.
Thompson chas been offered by Eastern Michigan, Troy and Army in addition to OSU.
After receiving his first Power Five offer from Oklahoma State, I wouldn’t be surprised at all if Thompson’s recruiting picks up big time during spring ball. He has great speed and terrorizes backfields with enormous hits. His highlights are littered with guys getting up slow after being on the receiving end of one of his hits.
OSU is currently in the drivers seat, being his best offer by a country mile at this point. Getting in early for Thompson could be important as his offer list grows through the next couple of months.
Daniyel Ngata, Running Back
Listed as an “all-purpose back” by 247sports, Ngata is incredibly versatile and he’s got an offer list to match.
Alabama, Clemson and Washington are among the leaders for Ngata at the moment.
Daniyel’s brother Joe is a wide receiver at Clemson and the 247 crystal ball has Washington as the favorites to land him currently. OSU has an uphill battle with his impressive offer list, but would be a boon if they could land him.
As a junior, Ngata had 1,725 all purpose yards with 874 coming on the ground. He also racked up 667 receiving yards and 22 total touchdowns.
Corey Wren, Athlete
This offer goes out to a recruiting hotbed. Wren plays at John Curtis High School in New Orleans, LA.
Wren played most of his snaps at running back last season but also saw some action as a wide receiver.
He’s currently rated as a three-star recruit by the 247 composite but has an offer list that includes Florida State, TCU and West Virginia. He visited Florida State earlier this month for the Seminoles junior day.
Wren has explosive speed and ended most of the runs on his highlight tape in the end zone with the nearest defenders being 20 yards behind. Like Thompson, Wren could see his offer list explode through spring ball as schools begin putting their full attention on the class of 2020.
OSU makes visit list for Javion Hunt
Carl Albert athlete Javion Hunt’s current offer list stands at two: Texas Tech and Ole Miss. But his planned visits suggest that he could end up with a lengthy offer list.
I will be visiting these schools in next 30 days:— Javion Hunt (@HuntJavion) March 28, 2019
Texas Tech university #Wreckem 3/30
University of Memphis #Gotigersgo tbd
University of Alabama
Oklahoma st university #Gopokes 4/20@JLMcCuistion @BrandonDrumm247
Having Alabama on the docket of visits is nothing to brush off. The Tide have experience coming into Oklahoma and stealing an underrated running back recruit: Josh Jacobs was a three-star running back from Tulsa before becoming a staple in the Alabama backfield.
Hunt is in the class of 2021 so his short offer list is nothing to be concerned about. That list will likely explode throughout the course of his junior season next year with Alabama already showing interest. He isn’t as explosive of a runner like Corey Wren but is incredibly elusive, slipping through tackles with ease.
Most high schools begin spring ball in mid-April with most spring games coming at the end of April and start of May. Offers are sure to be flying out during this time so keep checking back with us as we enter the recruiting busy season.
