Recruiting Update: Prospects at OSU-TU Game

The Cowboys, as you would expect, had a good number of high school prospects attend the game against Tulsa. There were close to 30 high schoolers who accepted the Cowboys' invitation to attend. That number included three players who have already made verbal commitments to the Cowboys.

Of the committed players there was Garber offensive lineman Brady Bond. The 6-foot-7, 260-pound Bond really stands out in a crowd. Vinita offensive lineman Noah Franklin was also there. Kicker Matt Fodge of Garland, Texas, was also there. Fodge reported that his team is off to a 2-1 start and last Saturday defeated the No. 1 team in Class 4A in Texas in Ennis. Fodge also has tied a school record this season with a 52-yard field goal.

Some of the other standouts included big, athletic defensive end Russell Brorsen and cornerback Blake Carter of undefeated Stillwater; record-breaking Pawnee running back Gerald Jones, who is the younger brother of Cowboy Grant Jones; and highly touted offensive lineman Dain Wise of Carl Albert, the favorite to win Class 5A this season.

Also, big offensive lineman Adam Meyer of Shawnee Mission North (Kans.) High School was there, and so were Jenks defensive tackle Zach Casey and his teammate defensive end Kash Yehle. Enid defensive ends Jake Collums and Jake Ross are both good size as is Bray-Doyle tight end Aaron Cummings.

Muskogee running back Pete Richardson is very talented and he was on hand. Edmond center and deep snapper Zach Allen and punter Cole Reynolds were also there and both camped this summer at OSU. There was even a committed player from another school that showed up as Comanche offensive lineman Jody Whaley, who committed to Tulsa earlier this summer, was at Boone Pickens Stadium.
