Cowboys Add Two Players

Oklahoma State will have another linebacker ready to play this season as the new updated roster released by the school includes one of last year's Texas Football First Team All-Super Team linebackers in Chris Collins of Texas High School in Texarkana,Texas. Also on the roster is former BYU wide receiver Antwaun Harris.

The 6-1, 230-pound Collins is a blur with a 4.5 time in the 40-yard dash. Collins was committed to Texas last summer before his senior season but missed his senior season because of an aggravated assault charge. The charge was later resolved and Collins finished his high school education at an alternative school in Texarkana.

Texas loved him because he was an All-State linebacker as both a sophomore and junior. His junior season he had 151 total tackles with 10 forced fumbles, five fumbles recovered and two interceptions. He is a 355-pound bench presser and has a squat max of 460 pounds. He was also the District 13-4A Defensive MVP his junior season.

He has gone a year without playing football and will have to knock the rust off and mature as a player, but should be a strong middle linebacker prospect in time.

Harris joins a pair of four-year transfers (former North Carolina wide receiver Adarius Bowman and spring transfer Clint Coe, who started at free safety last season at Troy) in the program.

Harris, a 6-0, 195-pounder with 4.5 speed, is originally out of South Garland H.S. in the Dallas area. Like Bowman and Coe, Harris will have to sit out games next season and will have two years to play beginning in 2006.
