Let's Play "Guess the Recruiting Game"

It's been a long time since we've played "Guess the Recruiting Class." But as I was watching some March Madness basketball I got a little "mad" myself and decided to play a game of "Guess the Recruiting Class." In honor of my friend and former Go Pokes originator Roscoe Migliore, who used to tell me all the time to do a "Guess the Recruiting Class."

There is lots of space to work with as Oklahoma State has two commitments thus far. One is a quarterback that the Cowboys jumped in on in a hurry in John Kolar and the other is offensive lineman Johnny Wilson, who came to Stillwater to watch spring football. I can confirm that Wilson looks good in person.

As for the rest of these selections I can tell you I either feel there is a good chance they wind up committing and signing with Oklahoma State or I really like them in my evaluation, or both.

By my calculations there are 16 places in the recruiting class, but there would be 17. Although the blue shirt on offensive lineman Deionte Noel takes up a spot in the 2015 class.

Let's play "Guess the Recruiting Class":

QB: John Kolar, 6-4, 190, Norman (Norman North), Okla.
This is a great find as he came in midway through the 2013 and out-performed David Cornwell, who is at Alabama.

QB: Open
I had every intention of putting a name here but this is where I wuss out because I think this could go to a guy that may be off the radar right now. Also, if Daxx Garman or Jake Hubenak were to really excel then this scholarship could be floated to a high need area.

RB: Ronald Jones, 6-0, 185, McKinney (North), Texas
His sister is a student at OSU and he camped a week with family at Lake Carl Blackwell. He will be more comfortable in the apartments. He's very talented, and his skills are what Mike Gundy and Mike Yurcich want for a running back in this offense.

WR/TE: Dahu Green, 6-3, 190, Oklahoma City (Westmoore), Okla.
My pick here as I love Green. He is a big-time pass catcher and excellent perimeter blocker. He may get big enough to play big as a wide receiver. He is one of my top prospects in Oklahoma.

OL: Johnny Wilson, 6-4, 280, Midland (Midland Christian), Texas
He looked really good when he was on his unofficial visit during spring practice. He is a winner as those guys have owned the state title at Midland Christian.

OL: A.J. Harris, 6-4, 295, Stillwell (Blue Valley), Kan.
He likes OSU offensive line coach Bob Connelly and he is a tremendous true center prospect that would be attracted to a program that makes the center the boss on the offensive line.

OL: Adrian Magee, 6-5, 315, Franklinton, La.
Oklahoma State loves to get players out of Louisiana with Eric Henderson the key recruiter for the Cowboys. Magee could be blocking for Sione Palelei, a fellow Louisiana product.

DT: Kingsley Keke, 6-4, 280, Richmond (George Ranch), Texas
Keke would fit in nicely with his abilities and style of play, projecting as a three technique on the defensive line.

DT: Kaden Jackson, 6-2, 260, Kingfisher, Okla.
This is one of my picks. I love Jackson as a defensive tackle. I know he will have to put weight on but I have seen his dad and I believe Kaden is going to grow a little more and will have the frame needed to be at 300 pounds. He is also working on a third state championship in the shot put. Explosion!

DE: Tipa Galea'i, 6-4, 220, Euless (Trinity), Texas
He's the younger brother of Junior Galea'i, who signed with Oklahoma State in February and will be an offensive lineman when he arrives. His little brother can really play. He fits the OSU defensive end profile.

LB: T.J. Fehoko, 6-1, 250, Salt Lake City (Cottonwood), Utah
Here's where the Polynesian connection really comes into play and the efforts of Beni Tonga come into play. Fehoko is one of the best in the nation. He'll like the connections and he will like Glenn Spencer as a defensive coordinator and position coach.

LB: Cameron Townsend, 6-1, 200, Houston (Cypress Ridge), Texas
Townsend favors Oklahoma State, and he probably understands that the "star" hybrid linebacker position is built for somebody just like him.

DB: Will Sunderland, 6-3, 190, Midwest City, Okla.
Sunderland is another of my picks, but I'm sure he is one of the Oklahoma State coaching staff's as well. Sunderland was at OSU practice on Thursday as an unofficial visitor and few prospects coming through the door have every looked that good. He is physically ready to play Division I now by the way he looks.

DB: P.J. Mbanasor, 6-2, 182, Pflugerville (Hendrickson), Texas
Excellent corner prospect that is big, athletic, fast, and just flat out good. He is high on a lot of lists.

DB: Dillon Lohr, 6-1, 200, Midwest City (Carl Albert), Okla.
Another on my favorite's list as he is very physical for a defensive back and very versatile as a football player. He plays some at running back and can catch passes, returns kicks, and play defensive back, and he does them all well.

For those that care, this comes out to an average of 2.9 stars per player as it stands right now. Not bad.
