Bledsoe Checks Out Oklahoma State

Defensive end Amani Bledsoe, now the number-one player in Kansas for the upcoming recruiting class, was in Stillwater last summer. He was in pads in the Cowboys "Down and Dirty" Linemen Camp and he was hard to touch. He was the best player on defense in the camp and that was going into his junior season. Oklahoma State offered based on the performance.

Today, Bledsoe was in Stillwater with defensive tackle teammate Trey Georgie and he was tempted to get it going again in pads. It was his second practice of the day this evening, as he and Georgie made it to Stillwater after starting out in the morning in Norman, Okla., watching Oklahoma, another of his 10 finalist schools.

"We're practically being teased rn... let's just throw on pads now yaaa?!?!," tweeted Bledsoe on his "Moose" Twitter account.

Bledsoe was the second of two really standout and premier Kansas prospects to spend time in Stillwater on Monday as Howard (West Elk), Kansas defensive end Isaiahh Loudermilk, an eight-man player, was there with his family.

Bledsoe's finalists, which he announced not long ago, include both the Cowboys and the Sooners, along with Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Miami (Fla.), North Carolina State, Oregon, TCU, and UCLA.

You get the feeling that Bledsoe will next cut it down to the schools that he will officially visit.

Georgie is a good looking prospect at 6-5, 260 pounds that has offers from Air Force, Missouri State, Northern Iowa, South Dakota State, and Western Illinois. Some recruiting reporters in Kansas feel he is under the radar or underrated.

There is no doubt about Bledsoe as he is one of the better defensive ends in the nation.
