Oklahoma State has two official visitors this weekend in Marcell Southall and Larry Williams

Football recruiting will head into a "dead period" on midnight Monday, Dec. 14, through Jan. 13, 2016. That will close out all recruiting activity other than phone calls and letters during that time period.

But this weekend Oklahoma State has two prospects in on official visits, including Duncanville, Texas defensive tackle Marcell Southall. The 6-3, 285-pound Southall is strong prospect that is set to play in the Semper Fi Marine Corps All-American Game.

Also, already in Stillwater and standing out behind the offense during the Cowboys first bowl practice Friday afternoon was Hutchinson Community College offensive tackle Larry Williams. 

The 6-5, 308-pound Williams was impressive looking as one observer said he thought he was former NFL and Oklahoma State offensive tackle Charlie Johnson, who is a frequent visitor to practice. Johnson is a big man, but so is Williams.

Williams, a native of Wilmington, N.C. started out two years at East Carolina University but was dismissed from the team by now former ECU coach Ruffin McNeil. Williams was All-Jayhawk Conference first team this past fall at Hutchinson and was greatly complimented on, both on and off the field, by the Hutch coaching staff. 

Williams will be a mid-year transfer. Oklahoma State has a Saturday morning practice scheduled and could have some recruits (2016, 2017, or 2018) show up to watch it.
