Recruiting: Weekend Update

It's real easy to wrap this one up as Oklahoma State only had five visitors in for the weekend, and one is still in Stillwater. DeMarcus Granger asked the Oklahoma State coaches if it would be okay for him to stay over another night. That has to be considered a plus as one of the top defensive tackles in the nation is looking at the Cowboys (along with Arizona State, Oklahoma and Tennessee) liked what he saw enough to want to hang out another night.

Granger, who is 6-2 1/2, 315 pounds out of Kimball High School in Dallas, didn't come in to start his visit until Saturday afternoon. Visits, by NCAA rule, can last up to 48 hours. Granger is being hosted by OSU defensive tackle Walter Thomas.

Oklahoma State picked up a commitment over the weekend in Dallas (Paulding County H.S.), Ga., offensive lineman Andrew Lawrence. The 6-4, 315-pound Lawrence figures to be a guard prospect, and was recruited by new OSU offensive line coach Joe Wickline. Lawrence visited East Carolina last week and had two other visits lined up but said he told the OSU coaches that he is done with visits.

Houston (Washington) wide receiver Jeremy Broadway was originally committed to Oklahoma State last summer, but the 5-11, 180-pound speedster changed his pledge in December following a visit to Texas Tech. Now Broadway says he has some thinking to do.

Hosted by quarterback Bobby Reid and recruited by among others OSU President Dr. David Schmidly, Broadway will have OSU head coach Mike Gundy and associate head coach Joe DeForest in his home on Monday to talk things over again. Broadway said he hoped to have a final decision by midweek.

The other two visitors over the weekend were Atlanta (Douglass H.S.), Ga., offensive and defensive line prospect Jason Hill and Edmond (Memorial H.S.) deep snap specialist Zach Allen.

Allen told Gundy and DeForest that he was coming to Oklahoma State and would report to Stillwater during the summer to begin conditioning and working out. The Cowboys don't have a returning deep snapper. Allen was a four-year deep snapper in high school and last week competed in the finals of the Chris Sailer Kicking and Long Snapping National Championships in Las Vegas, Nev.
