Mique Juarez, Cameron Murray are scheduled to visit Oklahoma State this weekend

Mique Juarez, one of the top prospects in the nation, and Cameron Murray, a defensive tackle prospect from Bryant, Ark., are scheduled to make official visits to Oklahoma State this weekend.

Oklahoma State has two very interesting visitors set to make official recruiting stops in Stillwater this weekend. Bryant, Ark., defensive tackle Cameron Murray was offered by the Pokes in October and he will be making his second official visit with two more schools scheduled. Torrance (North), Calif., linebacker and athlete Mique Juarez, one of the top prospects in the nation, will be making his second official visit after checking out Mississippi in November. 

The 6-2, 222-pound Juarez is considered one of the top outside linebacker prospects in the country, but he is equally as gifted on the offensive side with the ball in his hands. This season he led North to a 9-3 record before losing 35-21 to Mira Costa in the CIF playoffs. In that game Juarez ran for three touchdowns covering 86, 76, and 10 yards as he carried 18 times for 180 rushing yards. 

"It was a great experience, it gave colleges an opportunity to see what I can do with the ball in or out of my hands," Juarez said to the local newspaper of his senior season and playing quarterback. 

He finished the season accounting for 60 touchdowns with 36 rushing, 23 through the air, and one on a kickoff return. He also punted for his team. Then to think with all that he is considered a better prospect on defense. 

Juarez visited Mississippi on Nov. 21, and is also expected to visit Ohio State and UCLA. One reason that Juarez is interested in Oklahoma State is the Polynesian culture within the Cowboys as Juarez is part Tongan. 

Murray is making his second visit Oklahoma State after being at Louisiana Tech last weekend. 

"I will go to Kansas and Arizona after that," he said. "I'm looking for a family away from home. I'm also looking for competition and a great atmosphere. I want the school to be good and get a good education. I also want to see how the coaches are with the players and to be around."

Murray, who had 3.0 sacks and 11.0 tackles for loss this season for 9-3 Bryant, also deflected four passes, forced a fumble, and blocked a punt. He confirmed for us that he is 6-3, 280 pounds as his height and weight are listed differently in different places. Oklahoma State has a long history of good defensive linemen coming from Arkansas including NFL All-Pros Leslie O'Neal and more recently Kevin Williams. 

Both Juarez and Murray are scheduled to arrive in Stillwater on Friday.
