Recruiting: Aftermath On Moore Commitment

I honestly thought it would be tough for Oklahoma State to get a commitment out of Clayton Moore after he shared his thoughts on his two top schools - OSU and Ole Miss. It is always tough to beat the home team, both in real games and in recruiting. Oklahoma State's focus now has to turn back to quarterbacks closer to home including a few in Texas.

Drew Allen was impressive in front of the OSU coaches at the Mary Hardin-Baylor camp in Belton, Texas. Allen is an impressive player at 6-5 1/2 and 200 pounds with 4.6 speed. He threw for 2,589 yards and 28 touchdowns last season at San Antonio (Alamo Heights) and ran for another 254 yards and five scores.

We checked back in with him briefly Tuesday night to find out that he was busy throwing the ball in 7-on-7 competition as he and his Alamo Heights teammates handled Schertz Clemens and the Alamo Heights second team on Tuesday night.

"We played really well," said an ecstatic Allen.

Allen said he had not heard from or spoke to anybody Tuesday and was unaware of Moore's decision, but seemed to be interested when told about it. "I didn't know that," he said.

Prospects are aware more than ever of how recruiting transpires, and like in Physics for every reaction there is an opposite reaction. Allen has interests in a lot of schools, so he is not as greatly affected by what might happen at one school.

Duke, Wake Forest, and Colorado have made their way on Allen's list. He also camped at OU, OSU, Baylor, and SMU. Mississippi has been on Allen's list as well.
