Top linebacker prospect Mique Juarez does not make official visit to Oklahoma State

Standout linebacker and quarterback Mique Juarez from Torrance (North), Calif., was scheduled to make an official visit to Oklahoma State this weekend but did not make the trip to Stillwater.

For reasons we haven't been able to discover, Torrance (North), Cailf., standout linebacker and quarterback Mique Juarez did not make it to Stillwater for his scheduled official visit to Oklahoma State. As recent as Friday it appeared all indications were go on his Twitter account as he posted, "Alright time to get ready for this flight." accompanied by an aircraft emoji. 

We tried to reach Juarez but there was no answer on his phone. On his Twitter (@miquejuarez3) were posts about home visits made this week by Coach Hugh Freeze of Ole Miss, where Juarez has already taken an official visit. There was also a post with BYU and now Virginia head coach Bronco Mendenhall pictured with his family, and another picture from a home visit from OU head coach Bob Stoops and linebackers coach Tim Kish. 

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 they lost to Mira Costa in the CIF playoffs 35-21. In that game Juarez ran for three touchdowns covering 86, 76, and 10 yards as he carried 18 times for 180 yards. 

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 Oklahoma and BYU. One reason that Juarez is interested in Oklahoma State is the Polynesian culture within the Cowboys as Juarez is part Tongan. The hope for the Cowboys would be that he would reschedule a visit to Oklahoma State.
