Cowboys Host Second Junior Day

The Oklahoma State football program welcomed in an estimated 60 prospects on the first Junior Day on Jan. 29, and head coach Mike Gundy with his full coaching staff, including the additions of offensive coordinator Todd Monken, running backs coach Jemal Singleton, and wide receivers coach Kasey Dunn, should see a similar turnout for the Cowboys second Junior Day this Saturday.

The first Junior Day featured a number of talented quarterbacks including in-state prospects like Stillwater's own Jerame Littlell (2,878 yards and 23 touchdowns passing), Owasso's Kason Key, and Sand Springs' Darrack Harger. They also entertained several Texas quarterbacks including Brady Burgin of Highland Park.

Signal callers will again be on parade as Littell may be back again and joined by Yukon standout Corbin Jones, who passed for 2,294 yards and 25 touchdowns. Add to that list, Texans Ford Childress of Houston Kincaid (505 yards and 8 touchdowns rushing and 3,152 yards and 28 touchdowns passing), Luke Turner of Gilmer, Dane Evans (6-2, 183) of Sanger, and Alec Morris (6-3, 235) from Allen.

Morris is coming with Allen teammates in running back Jonathan Williams and safety Thaddeus LaGrone.

There are also some premier Texas offensive linemen expected in Carthage standout Greg Brantley, who reported an Oklahoma State scholarship offer recently. Boone Feldt is a standout center prospect and Lindale's Micah Simmons is also on the recruiting list of a number of schools.

From Oklahoma, Heritage Hall standout Sterling Shephard (56 receptions for 1,015 yards and 18 touchdowns, 8 interceptions on defense), athlete Adam Boyd (61 receptions for 991 yards and 10 touchdowns) of McAlester, Norman running back Donovan Roberts (1,761 rushing yards and 28 touchdowns), and Guthrie pair Blake Belcher, a big-time offensive tackle, and safety Luke Davis.

A sensational pair of defensive backs from Wagoner, Okla., in cornerback Kevin Peterson (52 tackles and 2 interceptions) and speedster Jimmy Carter (six interceptions) are expected to attend.

Out of Kansas, Collin Sexton of Abilene is making the trip to Stillwater after a basketball game on Friday night. The three-sport standout is the younger brother of Kansas State freshman Curry Sexton, and Collin made a name for himself this past season with more than 600 receiving yards and 7 touchdowns and 4 interceptions on defense.

More Texans that have said they are heading to Stillwater include Waco (Midway) safety Shakiel Randolph, who is 6-5, 190 pounds. He will be joined by Rockdale running back Daniel Brooks and Tyler (John Tyler) wide receiver DeVonte Haggerty.

It's hard to say exactly how many Oklahoma State will host but a good guess is a similar attendance to Jan. 29.
