Cowboys Like Trey Sterling

Standout defensive back prospect Trey Sterling from Sunnyvale, Texas has attracted the attention of the Oklahoma State coaching staff.

Go Pokes has learned that Oklahoma State did send at least one coach out on Friday while they were in the Metroplex and it was cornerbacks coach Tim Duffie, who watched Farmersville defeat Sunnyvale in a Class 3A Division I second-round playoff game.

Farmersville downed the previously unbeaten Sunnyvale team 45-35 knocking them to 11-1 but it could not knock off any of the luster on defensive back prospect Trey Sterling as the 6-1, 196-pound Sterling was impressive as he has been all season. 

Going into the game, Sterling, who plays both ways, had 63 tackles on defense with 40 of those unassisted. He also had four interceptions, five fumbles caused, and four fumbles recovered. On offense, Sterling had 181 carries for 1,909 yards with 29 touchdowns. You can add 16 receptions for 254 yards and four more touchdowns. 

As a junior, Sterling was more focused on defense and only getting spot duty on offense. He finished the 2015 season with 192 tackles, 118 of those unassisted. He also had six interceptions and he also caused five fumbles but he only recovered two of those.

Schools ranging from Texas, Texas Tech, North Texas and Army have shown interest in Sterling. Our projection is that Oklahoma State is going to offer Sterling, if the Cowboys haven't already.
