Cowboys Spring Practice Notebook

There were quite a few visitors at the Oklahoma State Cowboys practice on Friday, starting with the most important, which would be recruiting prospects. As he told Go Pokes earlier this month, quarterback Will Campbell of Frisco (Lone Star) was on hand to watch.

Will Campbell, who threw for nearly 1,000 yards and seven touchdowns in the first five games of last season before a broken arm cost him the rest of the season, is a legit 6-3 and nearly 200 pounds.

Campbell was at the practice with his parents, and he watched the offensive drills very intently. Campbell seems to like Oklahoma State, and he is also being recruited by Kansas, Mississippi, Boston College, and North Texas among others.

Jack Kurzu made the first Junior Day back in January and the 6-5, 302-pound offensive linemen was in Stillwater Friday with his parents, and had the head coach thinking he was a visiting coach.

He is a big young man and he is a smart one too. Kurzu recently scored 1670 on the SAT. Kurzu has offers from Ball State and Troy, but he has interest from Florida, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Missouri, Oklahoma, Louisville, Stanford, Rutgers, Oklahoma, and Texas A&M
