Cowboys Mini-Camp Is A Success

Oklahoma State's coaching staff saw plenty of talented prospects on Sunday as about 175 campers participated in a mini-camp inside the Sherman Smith Center, including a name familiar to Cowboys fans in Rylan McQuarters, the son of former OSU standout R.W. McQuarters.

For the second straight day the Oklahoma State Cowboys picked up two commitments and today they received one from San Antonio offensive lineman Derek Kerstetter and the other came from the Cowboys own mini-camp as Keller, Texas defensive end Spencer Misko came to Stillwater and showed his talents as a tight end too. He performed well and by the time he was barely out of town and on his way back down I-35 he was the newest Oklahoma State commitment. 

There were 175 campers in Stillwater today and there were a number of interesting players for both the current recruiting class, which is starting to fill up fast with 15 commitments, and plenty for the 2018 and even the 2019 classes. 

A familiar name to all Oklahoma State fans is McQuarters, as R.W. McQuarters played offense, defense, and returned kicks at a very high level and then went on to a long career in the NFL including winning a Super Bowl with the New York Giants. His son, Rylan, is impressive. He is not tall, but at 5-7 the junior-to-be cornerback at Tulsa Booker T. Washington is really fast and recorded a 4.43 in the forty on Sunday. You know last season he averaged 74.0 yards on his first four kickoff returns and then teams simply wouldn't kick to him. Rylan is one to watch. 

So is 2019 tight end Grayson Boomer, who is 6-5 and 230 pounds. He is just going to be a sophomore and he is really a good looking player that seems to eat up coaching. 

It was good to see the twins in Tylan and Tracin Wallace there today. They didn't have to be there but chose to come up and experience what it is like to be coached by the Cowboys staff. The two commitments from Fort Worth South Hills are looking for a big season with Tracin back healthy and ready to play quarterback and throw to his twin brother. Tracin measured 5-11, 180 pounds and Tylan measured 5-11.5 and 177 pounds. 

There was an impressive trio of junior-to-be quarterbacks in the 2018 class in Colby Kizzie of Conroe, Texas, Tyler Vitt of San Antonio MacArthur, and Blake Adams of Oklahoma City Heritage Hall. 

One of the largest prospects there was Putnam City North offensive guard prospect Andre Harris, who measured 6-4 and 342 pounds. One offensive linemen that really impressed with everything he did was Abilene, Texas tight end Coy McMillan, who likely will move inside on the offensive line in the future. He was 6-4, 270 pounds and could be a recruit that sees his offer list explode. 

On defense, two of my favorite prospects were Norman North linebacker Cade Mashburn, who got some extra time with defensive coordinator and linebackers coach Glenn Spencer after the camp was over. Spencer walked back across Hall of Fame with Mashburn. 

Another standout in the secondary was big cornerback Tyriq French of Idabel, who we interviewed and introduced to you from the Tyler stop on the satellite camp tour. 

We'll have much more in the coming days on the mini-camp as Oklahoma State's camp window closes.
