Coppell, Texas standout Gabriel Lemons was part of the cast for "The Show" camp at Oklahoma State on Tuesday night, but Lemons played a different role than you might expect as the 6-2, 175 pounder was not at wide receiver, but was working with the crew in the "No Fly Zone." Lemons ran a 4.44 in the forty and was also outstanding in the vertical jump and agility drill resulting in a scholarship offer this morning from Oklahoma State and head coach Mike Gundy.
"Words can't describe how grateful I am to receive and offer from OSU," lemons posted on his Twitter account @gabe lemons #24. He hashtagged Go Pokes, Pistols Firing, @CoachGundy, @CoachTim Duffie, and @CowboyFB_Elite.
Lemons working in the secondary might be surprising because last season as a junior he caught 43 passes for 616-yards and seven touchdowns on offense at receiver. He played much less in the secondary as he had one tackle, but he also had one interception that he returned 100-yards for a touchdown. It was a quick 100-yards, just like his 40-yards on Tuesday night were really quick.
Oklahoma State's offer joins and perhaps, trumps, Air Force, Illinois, Rice, and Texas State.
