Plenty Of Visitors Watch Friday's Practice

We will get more into this over the weekend as we try to check in on some of the recruits, but there were a bunch of visitors at practice on Friday that weren't named T. Boone Pickens. It was highlighted by a 2017 Texas quarterback prospect as Denton Guyer head coach John Walsh brought an assistant coach and his standout sophomore quarterback Shawn Robinson with him to Stillwater.

Robinson, 6-2, 200 pounds, is already one of the top and most talked about quarterback prospects in the state. He has an offer from Oklahoma State and many other schools.

"He is the first quarterback that I have had that literally can go to any school (college) he wants," Walsh said.

Lafayette (Teurlings Catholic), La. quarterback Cole Kelly was also at the Cowboys practice. Kelly is a 6-7, 235-pound quarterback with a reported shotgun of an arm. Kelly was escorted into practice by offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich and he was with the quarterbacks and the offense throughout the practice.

Kelly has offers from Arkansas and OSU, his two largest school offers. He also has scholarship offers from Louisiana Tech, ULL, Colorado State, and Southern Miss.

Offensive guard Jesse Harris of Gunter, Texas was there. Harris is a good prospect that is tough and shows up well on tape. He is listed at 6-3, 303 pounds.

One player watching that is heading to Stillwater was wide receiver Jalen McCleskey out of St. Paul School in Covington, La. McCleskey signed in February and the 5-9, 153-pounder was checking out his new team.

Former standout offensive tackle Paul Blair was also watching practice The former Cowboy All-Big Eight standout was there with his son, Jacob, who will be a red-shirt sophomore when he walks on next fall. The 6-6, 240-pound Blair was a standout in private school in Oklahoma City in his prep career. He attended NEO A&M but injuries kept him from getting on the field.
