The aggressive posture that Oklahoma State has seemingly adopted over the last week as its camp period continues kept up on Tuesday as two prospects used their Twitter accounts to announce offers from Oklahoma State. Arlington (Bowie), Texas football and track standout Braydon Johnson and Arizona Western College linebacker Patrick Macon both tweeted they were honored and blessed to have picked up an offer from the Cowboys.
Johnson is the more recruited of the pair so far as he has offers from the likes of Iowa, Minnesota, and Kansas. He also has scholarship offers from Colorado State, ULM, Tulsa, and Utah State. Johnson is 6-1, 185 pounds and lists a 4.4 in the forty along with a 4.24 in the 5-10-5 shuttle. Last season he only caught two passes for five yards, according to MaxPreps (and I'm not sure what is up with that).
However, Johnson's prowess in track is well documented as he and three teammates won the Texas State 6A championship in the 4X400 meter relay at the state meet over a powerhouse and favored team from DeSoto. Their time of 3:14.03 was impressive but they had run a 3:13.21 at the regional meet to also win that title.
Macon (pictured above) is originally from Milligan (Central), Tenn., close to Memphis, but signed out of high school with Arizona Western. Last season he finished with a very impressive 82 total tackles, 55 unassisted, 12.5 tackles for loss, and four sacks. He is listed on the Arizona Western roster at 6-3, 235 pounds, meaning he would play inside or weak-side linebacker. His jersey number is 44, so you could call him, "the 44 to Yuma." Yes, Arizona Western is in Yuma.
In high school, Macon was active with 96 tackles his junior season and nine tackles for loss along with two interceptions and two fumble recoveries. His senior season he had 47 tackles, again with two interceptions, two sacks, two fumble recoveries, and two fumbles caused.
Macon's first offer is from the Cowboys but his junior college coach reports that Arizona State, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Utah have shown interest.
