Oklahoma State football head coach Mike Gundy left this afternoon on a private jet to Yuma, Arizona to make a personal visit to Arizona Western College and NJCAA All-American linebacker candidate Patrick Macon.
He was part of a national runner-up as Arizona Western lost 25-22 to Garden City Community College of Kansas in the El Toro Bowl in Yuma last Saturday as the game served as the NJCAA national championship game.
Macon, who Oklahoma State offered back in the summer, was the leading tackler for the Matadors out of Yuma. The 6-3, 225-pound Macon had 118 tackles, 58 unassisted, 9 sacks, 27.5 tackles for loss, 9 fumbles caused, 2 fumbles recovered and an interception.
Macon is schedule to visit Oklahoma State officially this weekend. Oddly enough, offensive tackle Arlington Hambright, who played against Macon last week in the title game, is a Cowboy commitment and is visiting this weekend as well.
Cowboys defensive coordinator Glenn Spencer was in Georgia making a home visit to standout linebacker Tyler Taylor of Lanier (Buford), Georgia. Several sources, including Go Pokes, have reported that Spencer spoke with Georgia State University officials about the school's head coaching vacancy, but we have had sources inform us that Spencer has withdrawn his name from those having interest in the position.
