Recruiting: Record Turnout For Bedlam

Bedlam brought out record numbers of unofficial visitors. Three junior college players who have been offered made official visits to Oklahoma State - Copiah-Lincoln C.C. safety Andrew McGee and Fort Scott (Kan.) C.C. defensive tackle Horace Hubbard and linebacker Jacquain Williams. We have spoke with those guys and you can read those on the site. It looks favorable, especially with McGee.

One interesting player we spotted was former OSU signee Alfred Dupree of Dallas (Skyline), Texas. We do not know what his status is at this point and if he is at a junior college. He was at the game on Saturday night. DuPree was unable to qualify academically to enter OSU this past August.

There were also close to 100 unofficial visitors. Checking this out I've been trying to figure out the best way to present what we were able to find out Saturday on unofficial visitors. The best way is to group them in these categories, top prospects and commitments, other seniors, talented juniors, and Barry Sanders Jr.

Among the prospects that were in Stillwater was one of the Cowboys' chief quarterback prospects in Clint Chelf. The Enid quarterback is committed to Tulsa. He is the son of an OSU alum and Clint has been to OSU for games several times. The 6-3, 195-pound Chelf is rumored to be a favorite of OSU head coach Mike Gundy.

Chelf attended Saturday night's game with teammate and fellow Tulsa commitment Trent Dupy, who was also recruited by OSU and told me he was there checking it out. The 6-3, 280-pound Dupy plays both offensive and defensive line.

Cobi Hamilton is a 6-4, 190-pound wide receiver from Texarkana (Texas High), Texas, who had huge numbers this season and came along with his standout junior quarterback, Nathan Sorenson.

Another Texas prospect in attendance was Lancaster cornerback DeMontre Hurst. Hurst is a big time athlete that can really move at 5-11, 180 pounds. Hurst has been offered by the Cowboys.

Another top prospect from Oklahoma, Gabe Lynn, was there. The Jenks cornerback helped his team past Mustang on Friday night in the 6A semifinals and is down to OSU, OU and North Carolina for a college choice.

Jenks will face old nemisis Tulsa Union for the state championship this Friday night at Boone Pickens Stadium, and Cowboy commitment and Union running back Jeremy Smith was reportedly in Stillwater on Saturday night. He and his talented teammate Tracy Moore said Friday after their win over Midwest City that they would be there. Smith scored four touchdowns in the Redskins win and Moore has been tearing it up lately. Smith is 5-10, 205 and 4.5 in the forty, while Moore is 6-4, 225 pounds and very athletic at tight end and wide receiver.

There was also word that Midwest City Carl Albert safety commitment Daytawion Lowe also made the drive to Stillwater after helping the Titan defeat Lawton MacArthur earlier in the day. Lowe and his teammates Christian Smith (DE, Sr.) and Tre'Vante Porter (CB, Jr.) are being recruited by OSU. Lowe committed to the Cowboys at the end of October.

A couple of other outstanding Oklahoma City area prospects were in the house in Class 2A Player of the Year in Heritage Hall star Turner Peterson. There was also Crooked Oak defensive lineman Kenneth Garrett and Oklahoma City Douglass athlete Destin Stewart.

There was an unconfirmed report that quarterback Tyrik Rolleson of Sulphur Springs, Texas, was going to be at the game after leading his team to a playoff win on Friday night in Irving, Texas.
