We want to keep you updated on the Oklahoma State commitments and their accomplishments and last Friday the Cowboys defensive tackle commitment Brendon Evers set a new Bixby High School lifting record on the power clean.
"Yes, I did," said Evers when asked to confirm the new mark. "The old record was 345 pounds and it was set by a guy that starts at center for Tulsa. His name is Chandler Miller, but the new mark is 350 pounds."
Evers, who is 6-2, 291 pounds, said he was all set to be on the power lifting team but an injury forced him to lay off and just go through the football conditioning workouts. That is enough as he got the record. Asked about his other lifting max numbers and he was honest.
"My bench press is not very impressive, it is around 305 pounds," Evers said. But when asked about his squat max, he answered with pride, "It's 625 pounds."
I think he enjoyed the wow on our end of the conversation. Evers is an impressive player that put up impressive statistics for a defensive tackle last season at Bixby. He had 52 tackles, a whopping 23.5 tackles for loss and 4.0 sacks. He'll be back in full pads coming up in a couple of weeks as Oklahoma high schools go through spring football and team camp period on the calendar.
"I'm looking forward to it," he said.
Evers was also among the large group of prospects and committed prospects from the 2017 class and the signed incoming freshmen for the 2016 class that attended the spring game.
"I liked it, but there is not a lot that I haven't seen there at Oklahoma State," Evers said. "I liked the spring game, but honestly I'm ready for the real games to begin."
