The standout is one of, if not the very best, player in Oklahoma and represents a huge recruiting victory as OSU beat schools like Oklahoma, LSU, Michigan, Arkansas, and Tennessee for Staley's pledge. We did catch a big smile on the face of associate head coach and special teams coordinator Joe DeForest when Staley was mentioned within his earshot. DeForest was the recruiting coach for Staley.
SPEAKING OF SPECIAL TEAMS
DeForest is getting extra time in practice to work on the special teams units. Tuesday the work was primarily on punt and punt return. DeForest sized up his feelings on his units right now. Special teams always seems to play a key role, an even larger role, in early games.
"I feel good about our specialists," said DeForest. "I'm still not comfortable with everybody that we have working on KOR (kickoff return) and punt return just yet. Punt team is pretty solid, (and the) operation time has been good. I just have to get more guys reps now that we've narrowed down who we are going to put on that unit. Now we have to start repping them and not twos and threes so much."
SCOUTS STILL COMING
If practice had been open to the public Tuesday they would have seen logos from the Washington Redskins, Denver Broncos and Atlanta Falcons, as scouts from those three NFL teams took in the Cowboys practice.
