OSU Hosting Some Interesting Camp Attendees

Oklahoma State started its three-day high school camp on Thursday with the first practice taking place at 7 p.m. at the Sherman Smith Indoor Training Center and the practice fields. There will be three practices or team activities on Friday and then one last practice on Saturday morning.

The Oklahoma State staff will conduct a half-day minicamp Sunday designed for high school seniors and juniors.

They expect in excess of 300 campers and one interesting attendee that arrived with his coaches that are working the camp is standout defensive end Jonathan Marshall of Shepherd, Texas. The 6-3, 250-pound Marshall is listed as a commitment to TCU. Marshall is not physically participating in the camp but he is going out and listening to the coaches and eating the meals.

Marshall was offered early by Oklahoma State, then TCU and North Texas. He was in a Mary Hardin-Baylor Crusader Elite Camp in Houston last year that the OSU coaches were participating as guest coaches. Marshall is physically gifted and has posted some strong numbers including five sacks and double digit tackles for loss his sophomore season. It's interesting to see him in camp.

Two visitors expected Friday as their defensive coordinator Chris Rose is working the Oklahoma State camp are Edmond Santa Fe linebackers Calvin Bundage and Mike Coats.

The 6-3, 200-pound Bundage is one of the top recruits in Oklahoma and a potential top 100 national recruit. He already has over 20 offers and was seen in Norman earlier this week at their camps. He will not participate but will be making an unofficial visit to the Cowboys staff.

Last season Bundage had 81 tackles and a pick in nine games. He is the younger brother of Arizona starting guard Cayman Bundage, who came out of Oklahoma City Douglass. Most recruiting experts think the younger Bundage is a battle between OSU and OU.

Mike Coats is the son of former OU linebacker and now Santa Fe linebackers coach Michael Coats. The younger Coats is 6-2, 210 pounds and his recruiting is picking up momentum including interest from Oklahoma State. Last season Coats had 90 tackles for the Wolves and he has shown really good speed with a 4.6 in the forty. This could get interesting.
