Recruiting: OSU Expects Weekend Visitors

Oklahoma State has not had any official visitors thus far but that will change on Bedlam weekend as the Cowboys are expecting to welcome three prospects on official visits. We know that two of them are safety Christian Scott of Dallas (Skyline), Texas, and offensive lineman Mickey Okafor of Houston (Westbury), Texas. The third is a mystery guest.

Killeen (Shoemaker) defensive end Brandon Joiner was expected to come in for a visit but he has moved his visit back a week.

Scott is a 6-0, 195-pound safety prospect that was Mr. Do Everything for Skyline this past season. The Raiders lost their first-round playoff game last weekend to Mesquite 35-14. Scott scored one of the Skyline touchdowns on a 12-yard run. He also had a catch in the game as well. Scott prefers defense and it is his prowess on that side of the ball that earned him a selection to this upcoming January's U.S. Army All-American Game. He is also a standout in track competing in sprint relays, high jump, and triple jump. His academics are strong with a 3.0 GPA and 1200 on the SAT.

Scott has officially visited Oklahoma earlier this fall and he is also considering visits to LSU, Florida State and Texas A&M.

Okafor has been committed to Houston since the summer, but has kept the recruiting lines open to several schools.

"I just got an offer from Utah State last week, but I'm not too interested in them," Okafor said. "I took a trip to Texas Tech last weekend and I am going to Oklahoma State next weekend."

The 6-foot-6, 290-pound Okafor is ranked as a three-star prospect and the No. 70 guard in the country.

"I really enjoyed my visit to Texas Tech last weekend," Okafor said. "It was a nice visit. The coaches were just crazy man. That stadium was packed. I really liked the coaches and players."

Okafor is still committed to Houston but the Cougars are going to have to fight to hang on. "I am still committed to them and I talk to them a good bit," Okafor said. "I am going to take a visit there. They are just trying to hang on. They know I am taking visits and everything."

The third surprise visitor could be a junior college player, but it is not Snow (Utah) C.C. defensive tackle Tonga Tea, who is expected to visit on Dec. 8.
