"It wasn't too bad," Gent said of the trip to Tempe, Ariz. "I'm done. I've seen what I needed to see and I'm committed and going to Oklahoma State. I just didn't want to have any regrets about my recruiting, and I needed to take another visit to confirm to myself that I was going to the right school for me."
The 6-2, 215-0pound linebacker with 4.5 speed was one of the best defensive players in North Texas this past season in helping MacArthur to a playoff campaign with its only regular season loss to eventual Class 5A Division I state champion Euless Trinity. Gent's teammate Jeff Bereuter also committed to Oklahoma State and visited Arizona State on Dec. 9, and has since decommitted and committed to Arizona State.
"We were never going to the same school or made any plans like that," said Gent. "It just happened that way, and now it's not going to be that way."
