OSU Football: Final Stops Of Camp Week

I arrived home after 10 p.m. Sunday from a day of watching campers in the Dallas area as the Mary Hardin-Baylor and Oklahoma State coaching staffs teamed together to finish off their seven camps (most ever) in four days. Attendance was down some but there were still some strong recruiting prospects from both the 2016 and 2017 classes on hand.

I can tell you that the L.D. Bell camp was good with two really strong prospects. One we saw was defensive end Solomon Wise of Coppell. He has a brother currently at Arkansas and another playing football at Kansas.

The 6-4, 220-pound Wise looked really good in drills and skills at L.D. Bell. His teammate, offensive lineman Dylan Galloway, is 6-5, 279 pounds. He was also really good with his skills and he showed good fundamentals and quick feet all afternoon.

Former Oklahoma State standout tight end Marcellus Rivers is now coaching at Prestonwood Christian and he has two sons very much worth watching.

Tyreece Rivers (6-3, 270) told me he would very much like to follow in his father's footsteps to Oklahoma State only on the defensive side of the ball. He is a defensive end that could wind up filling out some more into a defensive tackle.

Tyreece is proud of his little brother, M.J., who will play wide receiver and some defense this season but worked at the camp as a quarterback, which will be his position after this season. He is a prospect in the class of 2018. That means he will be a sophomore this season and he is athletic and can really throw.

We will have more on both of the Rivers boys and on dad coming up. We will also get back and review some of the prospects the Oklahoma State coaches were around over the weekend. Stay tuned.
