Recruiting: OSU In On Alabama's Zac Etheridge

Zac Etheridge is one of the top cornerback prospects in Alabama and it appears that the Troy (Henderson H.S.) product is giving Oklahoma State a close look.

"My two favorites are Auburn and Oklahoma State," Etheridge said when asked about his favorites. "I have set up a visit to Oklahoma State on Dec. 9, and I am looking to set up some other visits now that our season is over."

Etheridge said Henderson struggled some this season finishing with a 4-5 record. His interception total was down to one after picking off seven passes as a junior. The 6-0, 175-pounder with 4.4 speed said opposing offenses seemed to throw away from his side of the field.

Etheridge already has scholarship offers from Auburn, Oklahoma State, Illinois, Troy State and Southern Miss. He is an aggressive player that played running back, wide receiver and cornerback, his favorite position, the past season. He is a good student who is looking to major in sports management in college.

"I'm looking for a school that has good academics and supports their players academically and has a good football program," Etheridge said. "I've seen Oklahoma State on television and have liked them. Then my coach told me that they requested a tape of me. That got me excited because I like their school and I like their fans. They seem to really get after it in games they show on TV."

Etheridge will be a part of a major recruiting weekend for the Cowboys on Dec. 9 which also looks like it will include Pearl River (Miss.) Community College defensive tackle Frank Harry, Waco University (Texas) cornerback Perrish Cox, MIssissippi Gulf Coast Community College wide receiver Tony Burks, MIssissippi Gulf Coast Community College running back Dantrell Savage, Marlin (Texas) athlete Jeremy Sanders, Bryan (Texas) athlete Artrell Woods, and Houston Madison (Texas) linebacker Donnell Williams. Woods and Williams are OSU verbal commitments.
