Recruiting: Brent Nickerson

This recruiting season has become very interesting with the coaching change as Oklahoma State has had to battle more than ever for players that it had previously committed. The Cowboys thought that they had Irving MacArthur defensive back Brent Nickerson solidified after an official visit to Stillwater last weekend. However, this weekend Nickerson and a high school teammate made a visit to Lubbock.

Nickerson is avoiding discussion right now as we spoke with his mother who said he was unpacking from the trip and it would be better if we called back after school on Monday.

Just a note, this is the uncomfortable part of this job for me. These young men like Brent Nickerson are trying to make a decision that will effect them for the rest of their lives. I know there is a desire to know everything as fast as possible, but when a parent asks me to call at another time I have no problem doing that.

I would say this of the Nickerson situation, it is safe, and I believe accurate, that his trip to Texas Tech gave him plenty to think about. Mike Gundy and Joe DeForest have a home visit scheduled for later this week.
