Who's Visiting This Weekend?

Oklahoma State welcomes an official visitor this weekend for Saturday's game with Kansas State. During the open week, defensive coordinator Glenn Spencer watched Ellsworth (Iowa) C.C. linebacker Devante Averette. He apparently liked what he saw out of the 6-1, 230-pound inside linebacker and now Averette, who has been committed to West Virginia, is making an official visit to Oklahoma State.

Averette has 62 tackles so far this season with 47 of those unassisted. He has two sacks and an amazing 18 tackles for 60 yards in losses. He also has a fumble recovered and a fumble caused.

Besides Averette, the Cowboys are welcoming a number of their commitments as both Jenks safety Dylan Harding is making the trip Steven Parker, his highly sought after teammate and fellow safety in the Jenks defense.

Broken Arrow's linebacker Gyasi Akem and running back Devon Thomas will attend the Saturday afternoon game, as will Tulsa Washington defensive end Jordan Brailford. Cornerback Chris Hardeman out of Alief (Taylor), Texas and DeSoto, Texas wide receiver Chris Lacy will also be representing the commitments in the 2014 class from Texas.

By the way, the plan now is for Rock Hill (Northwestern), S.C., quarterback Mason Rudolph to visit and be in attendance at the Homecoming Game with TCU on Oct. 19.

There are some other interesting possibilities who may be in attendance Saturday like center prospect Brad Lundblade (6-3, 290) from Liberty High School in Texas; Keller (Central), Texas defensive tackle T.J. Tauaalo, and SMU commitment and Wylie (East), Texas, safety Jordan Wyatt (6-0, 180).

Among the underclassmen expected to attend that we know of are Oklahoma City Casady lineman Josh Wariboko-Alali (6-3, 320) and his teammate Gary Woods II. Oklahoma State has offered Wariboko-Alali and Midwest City safety Will Sunderland (6-2, 185), who is expected to attend Saturday's game.

A really interesting underclassman expected to be in Stillwater is little running back LaDarrius Johnson of Field Kindley High School in Coffeyville, Kan. Johnson and some of his teammates are heading down to OSU. The 5-7, 155-pound Johnson has 49 carries for 566 yards (11.6 yards per carry) and 10 touchdowns.
