Recruiting: Gent's Trip 'Real Good'

Justin Gent is happy to be an Oklahoma State commit, and said he plans on being a Cowboy when National Signing Day rolls around next February. Gent, the 6-foot-2, 210-pound linebacker commitment from Irving (Texas) MacArthur, was one of nearly 20 prospects making their official visits to OSU this weekend. Gent had just returned home from Stillwater on Sunday afternoon when caught up with him.

"It went real good," said Gent, whose host was Chase Holland. "I think the thing I enjoyed most was just hanging out with the older guys, the older guys on the team, and just meeting everybody."

The trip to Stillwater was Gent's first official visit to any school. "They made me feel like I was at home," he said. "They made me feel real comfortable."

Gent has said in recent weeks that he may still take a few other visits, although he insists he is still a firm Cowboy commitment. "I do plan on taking one or two more, just so I don't wonder later why I didn't take more visits and enjoy myself," he said. "But I'm not taking them to make any comparisons or anything. I'm solid to Oklahoma State."

Gent said he will visit Texas Tech on Dec. 16-17 and will probably make a trip to Arizona State in January.
