OSU Expects Three Official Visitors Saturday

As far as we can tell, it looks like three official visitors will be making the trip to Stillwater this weekend as the Oklahoma State Cowboys face the Baylor Bears at Boone Pickens Stadium. Oklahoma State is 10th in the latest BCS standings and Baylor is fourth by an eyelash behind Ohio State.

Two of the weekend visitors have been scheduled for awhile.

Hutchinson Community College defensive tackle Jeremiah Ledbetter will play in the 2013 Salt City Bowl on Dec. 7 in Hutchinson, Kan., as 18th-ranked Hutchinson (7-4) will battle Dakota Bottineau (8-2).

Ledbetter, originally out of Olympia High School in Orlando, Fla., finished the regular season with 60 tackles, 34 unassisted, 5 sacks, and an interception that the 6-3, 285-pounder returned for a touchdown. Ledbetter committed to Oklahoma State on an unofficial visit to the Stillwater campus during the summer.

Trey Carter moved to Dallas his senior season from Shreveport, La., and plays at Pinkston High School. He is a definite wanted recruit having visited Mississippi State last weekend after originally being thought to visit OU that weekend.

He has been recruited aggressively by OU and TCU in the Big 12 and has offers from Miami (Fla.), Mississippi State, Arizona State, Arkansas, Colorado State, Tennessee, North Texas, Illinois, Kansas, and Mississippi.

The third official visitor will be Derrick Moncrief out of Gulf Coast Community College in Mississippi. Moncrief is committed to Auburn, but made an unofficial visit to OSU this summer. Actually, he was in Stillwater on the same weekend that Ledbetter was on campus and committed. They met each other on that weekend.

Moncrief had 20 tackles for the 8-2 Gulf Coast team this season after having 46 tackles and 34 unassisted as a freshman. He also had three interceptions and seven pass break-ups in the 2012 season. Gulf Coast is not going to a bowl.

Garden City Community College is finished after a 2-7 season and will play 13th-ranked Tyler in the Heart of Kansas Bowl in Pittsburg, Kansas. Cowboy commitment Tyreek Hill plays slot receiver and running back for Garden City, and they will practice this weekend keeping him from visiting unofficially for the Baylor game.

Hill is a dynamic recruit that visited Kansas State with a friend and teammate last weekend. He also received a visit from an Oklahoma State track coach.
