Holgorsen is in Texas recruiting and he was not meeting with anybody from Pitt on Wednesday night regarding their recent vacancy at football head coach. Holgorsen and Cowboys associate head coach Joe DeForest were dropped off by a private jet Tuesday night after practice after the same plane dropped off three Oklahoma State coaches in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
The two coaches worked the OSU recruits in the Houston area on Wednesday and were together for dinner on Wednesday night in Houston, according to DeForest. There were no representatives from the University of Pittsburgh present.
DeForest left for Orlando Thursday and told us he is there and waiting for the awards ceremony with Cowboy assistants Gunter Brewer and Robert Gillespie as they will accompany Dan Bailey, Justin Blackmon and Kendall Hunter to the ESPN event.
DeForest also said he had no new information he could share on his situation as he is reported to be a finalist along with Mississippi State assistant Mark Hudspeth and Georgia Tech assistant Mike Sewak for the University of Louisiana head coach position.
The Oklahoma State contingent in Orlando and the other coaches out on the road are all expected to return to Stillwater in time for Friday early afternoon's practice before the staff will host three junior college prospects in commitments Michal Bowie (OL) out of national champion Navarro C.C. and Ryan Robinson (DE) out of Jones County C.C. in Mississippi.
They will also host standout All-Jayhawk Conference defensive tackle Sylvester Williams out of Coffeyville C.C. in Kansas. Williams is considering OSU, Mississippi, USC, and North Carolina.
The Cowboys have three other junior college prospects scheduled for visits the next weekend after final exams. They are Navarro defensive end Toby Jackson and Navarro cornerback D.J. Hayden along with committed linebacker Alex Elkins out of Blinn J.C. in Texas.
So where in the world in Cowboys offensive coordinator Dana Holgorsen? He is in Houston recruiting and will be back in Stillwater on Friday.
