Haack Likes What He Sees At OSU

One of the 60 to 70 recruiting prospects that were at Boone Pickens Stadium last Saturday for Oklahoma State's Orange-White spring game waspro-style quarterback Brooks Haack from Katy, Texas. The 6-1 1/2, 180-pound Haack was in Stillwater with his dad, and said he liked what he saw at Oklahoma State.

"Yes, I thought things went really, really well," said Haack. "The facilities were all brand new and everything was so good. I really liked all of it.

"Coach (Todd) Monken (offensive coordinator and quarterback coach) came over and sat down with us while we were eating and then we talked to him after the game. He said he was going to come down to watch our spring practice (at Katy)."

Haack just finished up track season where he competed in the long jump and triple jump and he says he is now strictly football. Spring practice for Katy gets underway next Monday and that should begin the tour of college coaches.

Haack is listed as having a scholarship offer from North Texas, but he said that came from former head coach Todd Dodge.

"I haven't heard from Coach (Mike) Canales (quarterbacks coach) in awhile, but I assume that it is still there as far as I know," explained Haack. "I am also hearing a lot from Houston and from Pittsburgh. That is where Coach Dodge is now."

Last season Haack completed 95-of-174 passes for 1,531 yards and a very impressive 17 touchdowns with just three interceptions. As a sophomore, he actually drew some varsity time at Katy completing 51-of-91 passes for 479 yards with seven touchdowns and just two interceptions.

"We have three offensive linemen coming back and a running back and a receiver on offense," said Haack of Katy's outlook for next season. "On defense we have almost everybody back except for one defensive lineman and one linebacker. We should be pretty good, young with some juniors, but we will get the job done."

You can tell Haack has leadership skills in addition to his physical talent. He has a plan as he said he wants to be in the business school wherever he goes to college and wants to go the sports marketing route for a major.
