OSU Staff Finishes Guest Coaching Tour

The Oklahoma State football coaching staff finished up it mini-tour of Texas Sunday at Rockwall High School and over at L.D. Bell High School in Hurst on Sunday evening. Four days on the road will take a little out of you but the Oklahoma State coaches, working alongside the staff from Mary-Hardin Baylor, the host of the camps across Texas, were still very enthusiastic throughout Sunday.

Below is information we were able to gather on the camp tour and from our eyewitness experience.

Overflow Crowd at Belton, Good at San Antonio
The first camp was held Thursday on the Mary-Hardin Baylor campus in Belton, Texas, and it had a huge turnout of more than 200 players. That camp always has a good turnout but that was record numbers.

The next evening in San Antonio at Madison High School the numbers were really strong with close to 130 campers.

New Commitment Roberts Runs Really Well
Having just committed to the Cowboys on Wednesday night, Trey Roberts of Houston Eisenhower was eager to show off as the Cowboys were with the MHB coaches for a camp at Cypress Ridge High School.

Roberts, who plays primarily quarterback at Eisenhower, will be a cornerback at Oklahoma State. The 6-2, 200-pound Roberts, who posted times of 10.72 and 10.9 this spring in the 100 meters, ran a 4.5 forty in camp running instruction. He also showed up very athletic and is a really big corner prospect. The kind defensive coaches are really looking for.

Tyler Had Lowest Turnout
The camp at Tyler Lee on Saturday evening had the lowest turnout. It was still promising with several prospects coming from Louisiana, and recent Texas Tech quarterback commitment Patrick Mahomes of Whitehouse High School was in attendance.

The 6-2, 200-pound Mahomes was at one time thought to be an Oklahoma State offer when former Cowboys assistant and now University of Houston offensive coordinator Doug Meacham called his high school coach to tell him he was offering. The high coach didn't realize that Meacham had changed schools.

Rockwall Brings Out Fast and Explosive>
There were 87 players in attendance at Rockwall on Sunday afternoon, and many of them showed a lot of speed. There were 15 skill athletes that ran 4.5 and change or better in the run improvement session.

Some of the highlight players included 2015 quarterback Virgl Chason of West Mesquite as the 6-1, 160-pounder ran a 4.5 and looked good in drills.

Several running backs clocked in the 4.5 area including Davine Ozigbe of Sachse High School. He clocked a 4.5 and also added a 10-foot, 5-inch broad jump which set a record for the camps.

Ozigbe is 5-10, 190 pounds and is just going to be a junior this season. As a sophomore, he rushed for 802 yards on 150 carries. He scored 12 touchdowns on the ground and added three more for a total of 15.

Rendhicu Igbinoba of Richardson, Chris Simons of Farmersville, and Daxx Hill of Caddo Mills also ran well.

The speed of the many wide receivers in attendance was no surprise as T.V. Williams of McKinney ran a 4.4 and has an all-time best of 4.31 in the forty. DraShawn Glass of Garland also ran a 4.4 and there were a bunch of 4.5s posted at Rockwall.

Several offensive linemen drew our attention as Chase Weeds of Plano West is a good looking center/guard prospect at 6-2, 270 pounds. Garrett Thibodaux of Rowlett was the biggest lineman at 6-5, 311 pounds. Colton King of Richardson Pearce (6-5, 270) and Jesus Barrio of McKinney Boyd (6-4, 240) also looked good. All of them are 2014 prospects.

We will have more on the camps throughout the week as we continue to gather information and check into the recruitment on some of the players in attendance
