Bralon Addison Says He's Back On The Market

The smoke that Oklahoma State fans kept hoping wouldn't become a fire started smoldering again this weekend and it resulted in the de-commitment of one of the Cowboys' top early pledges. Multi-talented athlete Bralon Addison told the OSU coaches, including his recruiting coach Joe DeForest, he has de-committed. Reached by text, Addison confirmed Sunday that he did de-commit from Oklahoma State.

"Yes sir," was his response, but he also came back and listed these schools when he was asked the schools he was considering.

"(Texas) A&M, Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, Oregon, and Utah," text Addison.

The speculation that Addison was backing off his early pledge, which he made while accompanied by his mother at an Oklahoma State Junior Day in February, surfaced after Addison was at Texas A&M for their spring game on the same day Oklahoma State played its spring game.

Klein Forest quarterback Matt Davis and Dekaney running back Trey Williams, two of Addison's friends, both committed to A&M that weekend and the report was Addison did too.

He dispelled that rumor at the time, and indicated he was about done with a tour of schools that his father had insisted on him making following coming home from committing to the Cowboys.

This passage came from that report:
As for his recruiting, where his father has had him making some additional visits to schools since he committed to Oklahoma State earlier in February, Addison says he is close to, if not, being finished.

"I think I'm done," he said. "The only other place I might go check out is Arkansas. I'm not doing track (this spring) and this summer I will work out and do this summer track thing. I am going to the Nike Camp on the UH (Houston) campus."

The 5-10, 187-pound Addison is one of the fastest players in Texas and has the potential to be a difference maker in a lot of spots on the football field, including special teams.

Last season he played primarily quarterback and put up some impressive numbers with 1,068 rushing yards on 144 carries. He averaged 7.4 yards per carry and scored 15 touchdowns on the ground. He completed 118 of 199 passes for 1,858 yards and threw only three interceptions while connecting for 28 touchdowns.

He is also a standout on the basketball court and could have played college basketball. When committed to Oklahoma State he had talked about starting out as a wide receiver.

Now we'll see what happens as Addison is wide open and even appears to slightly be leaning toward Texas A&M. This could develop into a big dogfight.
