Talented 6-5, 200-pound quarterback Keondre Wudtee from Bossier City (Parkway), La., is keeping his recruiting decison close to the vest with National Signing Day just a week away.
"Nothing new," Wudtee answered when asked what was up with him and believe me he knows that question is all about recruiting.
I told him something was new with me, as I was looking for an ice breaker. I told him that I had knee replacement surgery on Friday and I had a new knee. He asked, "how is that working for you?" I told him pretty good, but I couldn't play tonight on the hardwood, like he will, and expect to beat Shreveport Evangel Christian Academy.
Getting more serious on the recruiting part of it, Wudtee said his visit to TCU last weekend was okay. He did not sound like it was overwhelming, but I will say that the youngster has a good poker face. He has kept pretty calm and non-committal since his offer from Oklahoma State, his official visit and return home, and now on the TCU visit.
"No one else," was his answer to the question on whether he was visiting elsewhere this weekend of what he would be doing.
I think he knows Oklahoma State and the Cowboys fans would really like to see him in orange for the next four or five years. In case anybody is wondering you could show up with a sign tonight at the Parkway and Evangel Christian basketball game.
Come to think of it, I wouldn't mind seeing with Wudtee looks like on the basketball court. He looks good in football. Through the regular season Wudtee was 136-of-236 passing for 2,544 yards with 29 touchdowns and only 9 interceptions. However, he had passed the 3,100-yard mark in the playoffs and added five touchdowns alone in an opening playoff route over Arcadia. His team was eliminated 41-27 in the semifinals by Zachary.
No firm answers now but kind of like the mood I hear the Cowboys football staff is in with Wudtee, feeling pretty good.
