Recruiting: OSU's Linebacker List Expands

Oklahoma State's list of linebacker offers has expanded to include a prospect that stood out in the OSU prospect camp in Chris McAllister out of Converse (Judson), Texas. The 6-2, 210-pound linebacker has shown off at a number of camps and combines this spring and summer including running a 4.62 in the forty and putting up 33.5 inches on the vertical and 10-7 on the broad jump.

Chris McAllister is a prodigy as his father and uncle played at Ole Miss. His family has moved around a lot with his dad in the Army, so he has had a number of allegiances but has always kind of favored the SEC with his families ties to Ole Miss.

He has been around this summer including the prospect camp in Stillwater.

"I went to Oklahoma State last month," said McAllister. "Coach (Glenn) Spencer showed me around and I was able to see the stadium and all the things they are doing to it. We also watched video and he showed me a tape of the team, and then I went to talk to the academic advisors and check out the academic and computer center.

"I like Coach Spencer and I like the coaching staff as a whole," added McAllister. "They are good guys and the school is good. The facilities are good. Oklahoma State is an option."

McAllster said he will not make a quick decision and he wants to make some visits. Now that the summer is closing those are likely to be official visits and he also wants his father to be involved in helping him evaluate schools and make a decision.

There are a number of schools to evaluate as the former defensive end-turned-linebacker has 11 offers including Army, Baylor, Colorado State, Houston, Kansas, Kansas State, Missouri, Oklahoma State, Texas State, Tulsa, and UTEP.

You'll notice there are no SEC schools in there and the Big 12 schools consisting of Baylor, Kansas, Kansas State, Missouri, and OSU may have the upper hand in recruiting him so far.
