The summer is rapidly winding down and Oklahoma State had a pair of football prospects in the 2018 class visit the campus on Friday. Assistant coaches Marcus Arroyo and Kasey Dunn were on hand to show the pair around. California standout quarterback prospect Cameron Rising and nearby Tulsa Union wide receiver C.J. Moore were in Stillwater.
Rising (pictured above) was shown on his Twitter account (@crising7) pictured with Arroyo, a fellow California native, at the Sherman Smith Training Center. Rising captioned the picture simply with "The Man" for a description of Arroyo.
Moore was pictured in front of a green screen wearing an Oklahoma State jersey and his picture on his Twitter site (@daddydimes35) was "I had a blast. I will be back soon." That is great with Moore, who recently garnered offers from Texas A&M, TCU, and UTSA, but has been adamant about wanting offers from OU, Baylor, Oregon, and Auburn, especially OU which he says has Bob Stoops, who knows what he is doing. There had not been much mention of Oklahoma State, so the attitude and the post on Twitter is a good sign.
Moore had 27 receptions for 526 yards and 11 touchdowns last season and is set to do much more this season. He is 6-4, 175 pounds and will really be growing into that frame.
Rising is 6-1, 195 pounds out of Newbury Park in California. He has a bunch of offers. Oklahoma State and offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich offered this spring. His offers now include Alabama, Arizona State, LSU, Miami (Fla.), Michigan, TCU, UCLA, Arizona, Colorado, Mississippi, Nebraska, Oregon State, and Washington State.
Last season as a sophomore he completed 191-of-319 passing for 60 percent and 3,213 yards with a whopping 40 touchdown passes and just one interception. A 40-to-1 touchdown-to-interception ratio!
