Recruiting: Cowboys Wrap Up Satellite Camps

The OSU coaching staff finished up a whirlwind tour of Texas with a half-day camp on Thursday in East Texas at Kilgore. Another 85-plus high school players were in attendance for this camp. The Cowboys previously held two camps in the Dallas area (Richardson Berkner and Duncanville) and one in Houston. All told there were more than 420 players that attended, many of them recruiting prospects.

No word on who was among the attendees in Kilgore on Thursday, but the expected list of players included wide receiver Jacob Amie, cornerback Tekerrien Cuba, offensive lineman Marquis Franklin and running back Kendall Hunter -- all out of Tyler (Lee) High School. It was expected that a number of players in Arkansas and Louisana would make it to this camp including cornerback Terrance Boykin out of Wynne, Ark., offensive lineman Grant Cook out of Jonesboro, Ark., running back Justen Gibson out of Shreveport (Byrd), La., and running back Justin Ford out of Leesville, La.

We do know that College Station (A&M Consolidated), Texas, wide receiver Detron Lewis was in attendance on Wednesday at the Houston area camp.The 6-0, 190-pounder is a primary target of the Cowboys in recruiting.

"I was there and it went pretty good until I rolled my ankle," said Lewis. "I was just trying to get through the drill, a shuttle drill, and on to the one-on-one stuff and I rolled my ankle, may have sprained it."

Lewis said he ran his 40-yard dash before the ankle mishap and ran a 4.45.

"I liked the coaches and I really looked forward to going one on one and then I got hurt," emphasized Lewis.

Lewis said this summer he is just working out and trying to get better in the weight room and going to camps. He mentioned going to Texas A&M, TCU and Baylor camps.

"A&M is this Saturday, so I may have to go to a later camp over there and let my ankle get well," said Lewis. "Recruiting is going the same. I picked up offers from Arkansas and Kansas State, but I have not eliminated anybody. It is all still pretty much the same."

His other offers are from Oklahoma State, Utah, UTEP and Texas Tech.

The Oklahoma State staff will host Football 101 on Friday, a clinic for female football fans with proceeds going to the May Gonzales Foundation. The Cowboys will host camps on campus starting next week.
