Junior Day: One Of Top QB Prospects Visits

Oklahoma State got a jump on the 2014 recruiting class as the Cowboys held their first Junior Day on Saturday for the class that will sign a year and a little over a week from now. There were reportedly some 20 or more prospects that took advantage of the opportunity including one of the top 2014 quarterback prospects for Oklahoma.

There are at least three national quarterback candidates from Oklahoma in the 2014 class -- Justice Hansen of Edmond Santa Fe, David Cornwell, now of Norman North, and talented Broken Arrow signal caller Coleman Key.

The Cowboys already have a commitment for 2014 in Key's teammate and backfield mate, running back Devon Thomas. Today, Key was in Stillwater along with Broken Arrow linebacker Gyasi Akem.

"It went pretty well," said Key of the trip. "It was great to be around the coaches and catch up with them, and also get a good look at the facilities, and I had a good time. It was me and Gyasi that went up there."

The 6-5, 210-pound Key is a big armed passer who also has the luxury of handing the ball to a bevy of talented backs including Thomas. Last season Key completed 111-of-210 passes for 1,308 yards and threw for 14 touchdowns and just five interceptions. He is the younger brother of current NEO A&M quarterback Kason Key.

Coleman said he has received a few Junior Day invites, and plans on being at OU next weekend, Missouri on March 2, and possibly at the Arkansas event if it doesn't overlap.

Gyasi Aken is a 6-1, 216-pound linebacker at Broken Arrow who had 44 tackles and two interceptions last season. He already has scholarship offers reported from Clemson, Missouri and Arkansas State.
