OSU Football Recruiting Notebook

It's not easy trying to track the movements of Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy in recruiting. On Tuesday we found that Gundy was in Georgia to make an in-home visit to Flowery Branch standout wide receiver and Oklahoma State commitment C.J. Curry.

C.J. Curry is coming in this weekend for his official visit along with a lot of the other Oklahoma State pledges and a few uncommitted prospects. Gundy then on Wednesday, according to what we were able to find out, made a near coast-to-coast flight to LAX and was in Southern California to see Dorsey High School speedy athlete Jaydon Mickens.

Mickens visited officially to Stillwater last weekend and is set to visit Oregon this weekend and possibly Washington State before signing day comes up. Mickens called his visit the best he's had so far. Gundy may have made an in-home visit to Arroyo Grande star linebacker prospect Seth Jacobs. Jacobs also visited last weekend and Gundy likes to follow up official visits with in-home visits. Jacobs is Defensive Player of the Year in the CIF section and he is scheduled to visit Colorado this weekend and close out with a visit to UCLA.

Both Californians are high on the OSU list. There are also reports OSU is recruiting Upland wide receiver Kenny Lawler, but we still haven't confirmed how serious that activity is.

Florida Sunshine

Avery Johnson is a 6-foot-2, 185-pound wide receiver at Pompano Beach (Fla.) Ely High School and he had talked up Oklahoma State early in the fall. Johnson is the younger brother of former LSU and NFL wide receiver and returner Patrick Johnson. We understand that Florida is jumping in on Avery Johnson, who is committed to LSU. Now reports are that Oklahoma State is showing interest. We'll keep you posted.

Seales to Houston

Last week Oklahoma State was checking out late bloomer Jhajuan Seales, who really looked good this season for Port Arthur, Texas. Seales, who is 6-1, 180 pounds with good speed, had a super senior season in leading Memorial deep into the playoffs. He finished with 54 receptions for 1,207-yards and 13 touchdowns.

In the last playoff win over LaPorte, a 34-6 victory, he had four receptions for 159-yards and a touchdown. He told us today he is scheduled to visit Houston this weekend and he made a commitment to Houston last Sunday. Is his recruiting over? We couldn't tell as he was kind of iffy on that when we asked. It was reportedly Oklahoma State offensive coordinator Todd Monken that was in to see him last week.

Dunn on the Road Recruiting

The internet dribble sometimes can be pretty humorous. West Virginia sites had the Cowboys wide receiver coach Kasey Dunn as the next and final hire by former Cowboys offensive coordinator and now West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen.

Holgorsen has hired former OSU assistants Robert Gillespie and now Joe DeForest. Dunn did not work with Holgorsen as he came in after Holgorsen was gone. They have no previous connection and Dunn was in Texas recruiting for Oklahoma State on Wednesday.
