Recruiting: Tray Allen Says OSU's "In It"

Tray Allen, possibly the top offensive line prospect in the Texas high school class of 2007, left for home this morning (Friday) after concluding his unofficial visit to Oklahoma State. Allen made the trip to Stillwater with his mother and OSU signee Deron Fontenot, his teammate this past season at South Grand Prairie High School. Allen said he liked what he saw and that the Cowboys passed the first test with him.

"OSU is definitely in it," Allen said referring to the schools he will consider for his future college home. "It was a good visit. I was really impressed with the coaching staff and the players. Everything is geared toward the team and I liked the way the players interact and are always hanging out with each other."

Allen is interested in majoring in engineering and he said he did have a chance to check out the OSU School of Engineering and liked what he saw there as well.

The 6-4, 290-pound Allen now has offers from Oklahoma State, Texas, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Kansas State, Texas Tech, Kansas, Mississippi and Baylor. He has been to Junior Day at Texas and then made the unofficial visit to Oklahoma State.

"I still want to check out some of the schools," said Allen. "I won't be able to go to all of them and I'm starting to get an idea of the schools that really interest me."

Allen is involved in track this spring, throwing the shot put, but will continue to take time to check out some of the schools.

Many more prospects will check out Oklahoma State this weekend as the Cowboys hold their Junior Day on Saturday. Among the standout prospects expected to attend are Dallas (Lincoln) linebacker Richetti Jones and Oklahoma City (Millwood) athlete Gerald Jones.
