ACT, Proms Compete With Spring Game

Brand new Cowboys quarterback commitment Nick Starkel out of Argyle (Liberty Christian), Texas would love to be at Oklahoma State's spring game Saturday but he has ACT testing in the morning and prom Saturday night. He is not alone as the ACT is going to keep a number of prospects from further away like in Texas at home. There are others with proms as well.

That said, there are still going to be some good players making their way to Boone Pickens Stadium on Saturday.

Let's start with the Cowboys that are signed, sealed, and will soon be delivered to campus this summer. Among the 2015 signees that are saying they will be in Stillwater to watch their future teammates are defensive tackle Taaj Bakari, cornerback Bryce Balous, running back Chris Carson, cornerback and Carson's teammate at Butler County Antwan Hadley, safety Kevin Henry from Louisiana, and Midland Christian offensive lineman Johnny Wilson.

New commitments for the 2016 class that are expected to be on hand include running back Justice Hill from Tulsa Booker T. Washington and Arlington Lamar cornerback Madre Harper.

Some of the top prospects that you might see in the stands or on the sidelines at the game include a 2017 prospect in Salt Lake City (Brighton) standout linebacker Sione Heimuli-Lund. He is a big-time player that is already earned some really good scholarship offers so far.

In-state Edmond Santa Fe's Calvin Bundage is a really strong prospect that Oklahoma State has offered early. He was at the OU spring game last week as was Dallas South Oak Cliff linebacker Marvin Terry, who has said he will be in Stillwater on Saturday.

A couple of other Texans that I'm excited about and say they will be on hand include Lancaster athlete Tyrell Alexander (pictured above), who projects as a defensive back or wide receiver in college, and defensive back Moses Reynolds of John Jay High School in San Antonio.

Xavier Kelly is a really talented defensive back prospect out of Wichita East High School in Kansas. Of course, the Cowboys have done will with Kansas prepsters during the Mike Gundy era.
