Most Important Newcomers: 9 Jhajuan Seales

Who are the youngsters from the Oklahoma State team - either a first-year player, a redshirt freshman or a transfer who has not played a regular role as a starter, backup who saw significant minutes or on special teams - capable of making significant contributions this fall? Robert Allen ranks the top 10 players in this feature. Check back daily to see the countdown from No. 10 to No. 1.

No. 9
Jhajuan Seales, WR
6-2, 185, RFr>br> Port Arthur (Memorial), Texas

If there had been any significant injury or injuries at wide receiver in 2012 then Jhajuan Seales was next in line to play. The initial thoughts of offensive coordinator Todd Monken and wide receivers coach Kasey Dunn last season were to play Seales.

From a speed and explosion aspect he went to the top of the class of the young receivers class that was part of the 2012 recruiting class. One of the last guys to be picked up as he de-committed from Houston to head to Stillwater, Seales should benefit from the fact he has four more seasons to catch passes in the Cowboys offense.

He had a good spring as he continued to learn more on playing at this level. He has really good (big) hands to go along with his speed, and his consistency catching the ball is one of the categories that separates him from other receivers. In the spring game he led the White team in receiving with six receptions for 49 yards.

Unsung and underrated in high school, he caught 54 passes for 1,207 yards and 13 touchdowns as a senior. You might consider him a late bloomer, which again, is really good for Oklahoma State in the future.

Seales could possibly start some at the X (wide) receiver as it will depend on what the Cowboys do with Tracy and Charlie Moore. Austin Hays is very much in that conversation as well with all he did last season while playing as a freshman.

It is a given that Seales will contribute and Oklahoma State fans will enjoy his work.
