Recruiting: Another QB On The Cowboys' List

Oklahoma State continues to pursue a quarterback or two for the 2009 class and the search this past weekend as the OSU staff was out in evaluations with the open week took co-offensive coordinator Gunter Brewer to Germantown, Tenn.

"Yes sir, Coach Brewer from Oklahoma State was at my school on Thursday," said Germantown (Houston) quarterback Nathan Jolley. "That was very exciting for him to be there and I am very interested in Oklahoma State."

Jolley is a 6-2, 200-pound dual threat quarterback that ran a 4.66 in the forty at the Scout Combine in the Goergia Dome in Atlanta this past summer, but he clocked a better time of 4.59 at the Middle Tennessee State camp also during the summer.

His Houston High team is off to a 5-0 start and won this past Friday over Woodale, 42-7, with Jolley throwing for a couple of touchdowns. Earlier this season he was 6 of 9 passing for 161 yards and four touchdowns in a win over Memphis (Frayser). In the season opener he was 9 of 15 for 10 -yards and two touchdowns and also rushed for 77 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Jolley estimates through five games he has throw for more than 400 yards and 9 touchdowns and rushed for close to 300 yards and four touchdowns.

His list of schools includes Georgia (he'll visit unofficially for the Alabama game this weekend), Oklahoma State, Louisiana Tech, Arkansas State, Middle Tennessee State, Memphis and Duke. That is a wide ranging group.

"I grew up a Georgia fan, a diehard Dogs fan," said Jolley, admitting that he was never much of a Tennessee Vols fan. "I understand that they (Georgia) have some quarterback commits in my class, but I will still root for them. (With Oklahoma State) my interest is really from their interest in me.

"When I started hearing from them I began looking and they are a quality Big 12 program and they have a good offensive scheme and their quarterback is playing really well right now. It's a good offense that looks like it is fun to run."

Jolley said he is looking into trying to get to Stillwater for a game this season and says his interest is very high on the Cowboys. He added when asked about Georgia playing in Stillwater for the season opener next year that he would have no problem with that.

"If I go to OSU, then I will be the biggest Cowboys fan," he said. "i can always root for Georgia later, but not until after that game."
