Glidden Rolls Through Visit

The Oklahoma State recruit that is truly a man for all seasons is wide receiver David Glidden of Mustang, Okla., who plays football, basketball, and baseball for the Bronchos, and if there was more space on the calendar he would probably play more sports. A basketball game on Friday night kept him from arriving in Stillwater until Saturday morning for his official visit. Did he feel cheated?

"No, and it went really well," said the 5-11, 180-pound speedster and playmaker. "I had ample time and we were able to go over a lot and see a lot of things.

"That tour bus ride through campus and going all over was really good and I feel like I got to see everything. I was really impressed with the Academic Center and the Colvin Center and really all the places on campus."

Kiddingly, told he may have missed the best meal of the weekend on Friday, he agreed.

"Yeah, they had shrimp on Friday night, so I think I did miss the best meal of the weekend, but all the meals were really good," he said. "The best thing about it, was with so many guys there, was getting to meet all the guys.

"I had become friends with J.W. (Walsh) and Nico (Ornelas) and Travis (Cross), but I was able to spend time with a lot fo the guys. I got to meet Lyndell Johnson. I hung out with him a lot and Josh Stewart. He is going to be a great player. I was also starting to get to know (Desmond) Roland."

Glidden was outstanding this season in earning unanamous All-State honors. He caught 65 passes for 1,244 yards and 17 touchdowns. He also picked off six passes on defense and returned four of them for touchdowns. He also returned four kicks for touchdowns as well. He is a touchdown maker.

Glidden informed us that he met up with a lot of his future teammates in Texas in December when he went to Cowboys Stadium in Arlington to watch Denton Guyer and Cibolo Steele in the Class 5A Division II state championship game.

It's kind of funny the Cowboys have players from both teams in that game coming to Oklahoma State. They also have a pair of Mustang Bronchos because Glidden will join his visit host from the weekend, former Mustang All-Stater Josh Cooper, at OSU.

Glidden said overall he is very impressed with the class. For him, personally, it is now getting back in basketball this week with a home game on Tuesday with Choctaw, and then the Bronchos will be at the Deer Creek Tournament in Edmond later in the week.

As for his future, he is looking forward to getting back to Stillwater for college.
