Where Are The Cowboy Coaches?

It's very hard to track college coaches and where they go for recruiting evaluations on an open week unless you are in the staff meetings. However, we have tried to scrounge for information and we have learned of a few places the Cowboys staff has been or will be on this Friday night and on Saturday.

We know that the Cowboys will have a presence in Athens, Texas for the homecoming game and Athens wide receiver and standout recruit and Oklahoma State commitment Kendall Sanders. Sanders had told us earlier this week he was expecting the Cowboys to be there.

We have also learned that two other wide receivers will be seen in person this weekend as some coach is expected in Chandler, Arizona to see Javon Williams and another Cowboy coach is expected in Chesterfield, Mo. to see Brandon Sheperd. Both are top targets of the Cowboys. One of those coaches, likely in Missouri to see Sheperd could be offensive coordinator Todd Monken, who we know on Monday was in Rochester, Ill. to see quarterback commitment Wes Lunt. It would figure that Cowboys wide receiver coach Kasey Dunn would be the coach in Arizona checking out Williams.

The Cowboys inside receivers coach Doug Meacham was in Denton last night to watch Cowboy commitment Dominic Ramacher play in the lightning delayed thumping that the Guyer Wildcats put on the Coppell Cowboys. A good guess on Meacham tonight would be he out seeing OSU commitments Ashton Lampkin at Fort Worth Dunbar and possibly Jeremiah Tshimanga at North Richland Hills.

Offensive line coach Joe Wickline was bound for East Texas, which means he could be in Athens watching Sanders or could be checking out Eric Davis play defensive tackle where he has moved to help his team at Tyler John Tyler High School. Davis is slated to play defensive end at Oklahoma State. There are other prospects in that area as well. Wickline could see Greg Brantley at Cathage, who is a Cowboy commitment. We expect Wickline will also venture over to Mississippi to watch NW Mississippi offensive guard Donald Hawkins this weekend as well.

We would guess that Joe DeForest is in Houston and besides committed players could be checking in on former commitments athlete Bralon Addison out of Fort Bend Hightower and safety Kenneth Marshall out of South Houston.

Defensive coordinator Bill Young is out and expected to evaluate some junior college defensive line prospects in Texas, but could be in Wichita tonight to possibly see Trace Clark.

We also know that running backs coach Jemal Singleton was out on Monday and spent it at Heritage Hall in Oklahoma City evaluating Barry J. Sanders, a Cowboys running back target.

Just some random prospects that Oklahoma State might also be eyeballing would include safety LaDarrell McNeil of Wilmer Hutchins, who is committed to Tennessee; defensive end Javonte McGee out of San Antonio Houston; running back Timothy Wright out of LaMarque in Texas; and just about any A&M commitment that showed interest in Oklahoma State. Those two schools have been banging head in recruiting for the past couple of years now.
