Recruiting Weekend Overview

There is a not a lot to report from this weekend. The three key players to check up on going into the weekend couldn't be reached or became a non factor. The non factor is TSST athlete Prentiss Elliott. Elliott has more to worry about than recruiting after the fracus and his arrest at a TSST-Memorial basketball game last week. Elliott has been charged with the assault of a police officer.

Pearland, Texas defensive end Cyril Obizor and Port Arthur Memorial cornerback Danny Gorrer were the other key recruits for Oklahoma State. Both players visited Texas A&M and even though both have other visits lined up, it appeared their decision was leaning toward being either Oklahoma State, where both visited last week, and Texas A&M. Gorrer never answered his phone, usually a sure sign that a decision may be forthcoming. Obizor was in and out and when I finally reached him at home he was asleep.

It appears Aaron Saunders is a firm commitment for Missouri. The OSU staff apparently tugges some at the all offensive tackle out of San Antonio Jay.

It was a surprise to find out that Guthrie offensive lineman and OSU commitment David Washington took a visit to Tulsa last week, but he was not swayed.

Another surprise that top national defensive tackle DeMarrio Pressley made a weekend official stop at Virginia. Pressley is still scheduled for a trip to OSU on January 16. Something tells me the Cowboys will have to fight to keep that date with Pressley and his mother.

Everything else seemed to go status quo, although Oklahoma State will likely have to fight to keep alive with Richardson Pearce tailback Parrish Fisher. Fisher visited Kansas State and I would put the Wildcats in the driver's seat on this talented runner.

The Cowboys staff will have a busy week. They will conduct practice everyday around noon and then following practice hit the road recruiting before getting back the next day to conduct practice. It will be a grinding schedule before the holiday dead period begins next week.
