Mickens Says Visit Went Well

You can tell that Los Angeles (Dorsey), Calif. all-purpose skill athlete Jaydon Mickens is ready to quit the talking and go with the choosing and the signing. Mickens did not return a call, but did engage with some text messaging after he entertained Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy and Cowboys running back coach Jemal Singleton in the school and home on Wednesday.

"Things went wonderful," said Mickens of the visit.

Mickens, who was the MVP in the recent Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl, which also featured Cowboy recruit and just enrolled quarterback Wes Lunt, is a four-star Scout prospect and has earned some All-American mention.

What strikes you and what you have read about in stories by Scout.com National recruiting analyst Brandon Huffman, who has good eyes on the West Coast, is that Mickens has big-time speed. He is a blazer, whether in the run game or as a receiver.

This past season his team at Los Angeles Dorsey High School went 11-2 before being eliminated in the playoffs. Mickens had 20 total touchdowns with 32 receptions for 558 yards and seven touchdowns. He also rushed for 378 yards and 13 touchdowns. He also was a huge contributor on special teams.

In our texting, Mickens said it is Washington that is the other school he is deciding between Oklahoma State for his signature. He reinforced that he will make the decision public on Jan. 31 in Los Angeles at The ESPN Zone. He has promised us a way to listen in live, so we will have that news almost as soon as it happens.

Gundy and Cowboys co-defensive coordinator Glenn Spencer also visited Seth Jacobs, the very talented star linebacker prospect from Arroyo Grande, Calf. We tried to reach Jacobs by phone and text but weren't able to get any information on how his evening went.
