Recruiting: Spurgeon Taking Offers

Tuesday night was another prep basketball night in Oklahoma, and two Green Country rivals played on the hardwood. Broken Arrow faced the task of dealing with Owasso post player Trent Spurgeon, who is tough in hoops but is much more of a load to deal with on the gridiron. The 6-7, 270-pound Spurgeon is gaining offers for his play on the offensive line at a rapid pace.

Oklahoma State offered early and since then you can add Texas Tech, Kansas, Kansas State, Tulsa, Duke and Stanford. Spurgeon, who is an outstanding student planning a major and a career in the medical field, is extra attractive becuase of his 3.99 grade point average.

"I missed the junior day at Oklahoma State because of the weather and we had basketball stuff going on that day because of the ice storm earlier in the week," said Spurgeon.

"I was surprised when I got the offer. It was my first in-state offer and I knew Oklahoma State was interested because they had seen me a lot because of Brandon (teammate Brandon Webb who signed this recruiting season with OSU) and Coach (Joe) Wickline had been in contact with me and had shown interest."

Spurgeon said he is interested in the Cowboys but doesn't seem to be in a hurry with his recruiting experience. In fact, so far he is kind of enjoying it.

"It is pretty cool," said Spurgeon, who has a 5.1 in the forty but didn't know his weight lifting maximums. "You hear from everybody and all these coaches are chasing kids around. It is really cool."

Spurgeon can count on the chase continuing and it won't stop until he makes a decision, and it may not even stop then. He is rapidly being considered the top offensive line prospect in Oklahoma by some.
