Football: Cowboys Host Official Visitor

Recruiting visits are usually over at this point with the new class of signees tucked away, but the Oklahoma State football staff was hosting an official visitor this weekend. BYU wide receiver Antwaun Harris was at the basketball game Saturday and is in Stillwater this weekend looking at Oklahoma State as his new college home.

Harris was joined on the visit by his parents. The 6-0, 190-pound speedster out of South Garland High School in Texas lettered as a true freshman last season at BYU. He played in all 11 of the Cougars' games and caught 17 passes for 149 yards, including four recpetions for 38 yards in the BYU win at Colorado State. He is also a candidate to return punts and kickoffs when he becomes eligible.

Harris was recruited to BYU by former head coach Gary Crowton. Harris decided to transfer, and was given his release, when BYU fired Crowton after last season and replaced him with defensive coach Bronco Mendenhall.

It is believed that Harris, who is familiar with new Cowboy assistant Todd Bradford that came from BYU, offensive coordinator Larry Fedora and running backs coach Curtis Luper, has pretty much decided on coming to Oklahoma State. The weekend visit is really a formality.

Harris will be ineligible to play in games next season but can be on scholarship and can practice with the team. Harris will have three years of eligibility remaining, starting in the 2006 season.

Another plus with Harris is that South Garland is loaded with Division I prospects for next recruiting season and he would give Oklahoma State a connection with the program.
