Nearly 100 Prospects Attending Junior Day

The recruiting world turns like no other. This is why on a weekend where Oklahoma State football picked up a commitment from Burton, Texas jumbo athlete and defensive end Louis Brown and with the Cowboys were seeking a pledge from Butler County C.C. standout running back and Georgia commit Chris Carson, they are also hosting their first Junior Day with nearly 100 2016 prospects attending.

We will try to get some reaction from some of the juniors spending the afternoon at the West End Zone football facility of Boone Pickens Stadium and with head coach Mike Gundy and the Cowboys coaching staff.

Among the nearly 100 junior prospects expected to attend were dynamite Oklahoma prep running backs Justice Hill of Tulsa Washington and Nic Roller of state champion Bixby in Class 6A Division II. Hill rushed for 1,426 yard and 22 touchdowns for the Hornets this season and we know he has an early Cowboy scholarship offer.

Roller was the MVP in the Spartans championship game against Lawton and on the season he rushed for 2,026 yards and 33 touchdowns. He was flat out tough to tackle.

Among the other prospects expected in Stillwater was maybe the best offensive line prospect in the 2016 class in Oklahoma in T.J. Fiailoa of Lawton MacArthur High School. Fiailoa is easily 6-4 or 6-5 and close to 300 pounds but very good on his feet and athletic.

Other prospects that we expect to be in attendance and already with profiles on the Scout system include Manvel, Texas linebacker Jordan Carmouche; Arlington (Lamar), Texas wide receiver Kofi Boateng; Missouri City (Ridge Point), Texas offensive lineman Travis Bruffy; Shawnee (Mill Valley), Kansas offensive lineman Ben Hecht; Jenks linebacker Austin Quillen; and Wylie (Wylie East) wide receiver Jared Wyatt.

The event is open to the prospects and their parents. They get a tour of the facilities and the living areas for football players, hear from the assistant coaches, and then also from head coach Mike Gundy. A few players and their parents may get one-on-one visits with the head coach in his office.
