Veatch Returns To Stillwater

All-State performer Zac Veatch of Broken Arrow, Okla., made his official visit to Oklahoma State this weekend. The 6-4, 250-pounder has been committed to the Cowboys since Sept. 28 and even played in his final game in Boone Pickens Stadium as the Tigers lost a hard fought state championship Game to Tulsa Union. Veatch said the official visit allowed him to see a different side of OSU's campus.

"It was great and they kept us busy the entire time," said Zac Veatch. "It was real nice as we got to spend more time with the people and see more things.

"It was more relaxed except maybe the eating. It seemed like we were eating every two and a half hours. We had breakfast and then it was like we turned around and were eating again."

Veatch said his host was Daniel Koenig, and the youngest of the Koenig brothers has a reputation of being a nice guy off the field but having a change of personality when he is on the field.

Veatch said he had heard that and was pretty good with it. Having watched Veatch play, he seems to undergo a similar change when he is playing. Veatch also said he is looking into geology as a major at Oklahoma State.

He also said it was discussed what the Oklahoma State coaching staff plans for the two-way player in high school as he played both tight end and defensive end.

"They said I would start out at tight end and play that the first year," explained Veatch. "They said after that first year we would look into whether I would need to change and play on defense or anywhere else."

Veatch doesn't play any spring sports and said he will work out in the mornings throughout the spring with his high school strength coach in getting ready physically for college.
