We've know all along that standout athlete/safety prospect Dylan Harding of Jenks, Okla., is that kind of guy that wants to be an Oklahoma State Cowboy. He pushed hard to make sure he impressed the OSU coaching staff, and that this weekend's official visitors hit it off with their future teammates. Judging from Harding's comments the weekend could not have been any better on the Stillwater campus.
"It was great, definitely a time to unite," said Harding of being surrounded by 17 of his future classmates at Oklahoma State. "Having all the guys here that are already committed definitely makes for the best experience. It was all about developing good relationships with each other, and I also became close with some of the older players on the team that are going to be my teammates."
Harding; who finished with 59 tackles, an interception, a fumble caused and a fumble recovered, along with seven touchdowns scored on the offensive side of the football in helping the Jenks Trojans to the Oklahoma Class 6A state championship; was hosted by fellow safety Jordan Sterns.
"The food was great and everything was excellent. Perfect," added Harding, who if you can't tell is pretty excited about being a Cowboy.
Harding is also a tremendous baseball player at Jenks, and while he will play baseball this spring he is also looking to do something else.
"I'm going to talk to my baseball coach and the track coach to see if I can't work with them and run in some meets," said the speedy Harding, who clocked a series hand-held timed 40s all in under 4.45 at the Oklahoma State camp last summer.
