Navarro C.C., Tex./Sand Springs (Page), Okla.
Bowie signed with Oklahoma State out of high school and spent 7 to 10 days in fall camp before learning that he had not passed the NCAA Clearinghouse. In camp he was so impressive that he ran some with the first team and there were thoughts he might play as a freshman.
He has been outstanding in the two seasons he has played at Navarro, including helping them to the 2010 NJCAA national championship this season culminating last Sunday with a 13-12 win over Butler in the Citizens Bank Bowl.
One coach from another school that saw him play last Sunday said that Bowie was a sure-fire NFL player some day and that it was making him sick thinking that Bowie would be added to that offensive line cast already at Oklahoma State. Bowie also made the trip to Stillwater to watch practice during the Thanksgiving break.
Ryan Robinson, DL
6-4, 265, 4.7
Jones County C.C., Miss./Hoschton (Mill Creek), Ga.
Robinson also signed out of high school with Oklahoma State and has made the most of his junior college time. As a freshman he was second team All-MACJC South Conference. This season he was first team and had 64 tackles with 49 unassisted. He had 13 tackles for loss for 34 yards in damages. He also had eight sacks for 37 yards in losses for the opponents, and also had a force fumble. Robinson has excellent speed and is now bigger and stronger. Like Bowie he is committed to Oklahoma State going into the vist.
Sylvester Williams, DT
Coffeyville C.C., Kan./Jefferson City, Mo.
Williams is exactly what you look for in a junior college defensive tackle. He is big, physical, and athletic. He finished this season with 49 tackles, 11.5 tackles for loss, two sacks, four blocked kicks, and a forced fumble.
Williams has been popular this season in earning All-Jayhawk Conference honors for a team that went to a bowl game. He has already visited North Carolina, Southern Cal, Mississippi, and now checks out Oklahoma State. It has been the Cowboys and Mississippi that have been presumed to be the leaders for the mid-term transfer.
