Recruiting: Young Koenig Has Six Offers

The name Koenig is a very familiar one for Oklahoma State fans as Doug Koenig played for the Cowboys during the Les Miles era and his brother David followed and earned All-Big 12 honors as an OSU offensive linemen. Now the third brother, Daniel, is a junior at Cape Coral High School in Florida and making a name for himself.

The 6-6, 260-pound offensive tackle was one of the top players in his area on the west side of the state. He already has six scholarship offers in Oklahoma State, Central Florida, Southern Miss, Marshall, Wake Forest, and Duke.

"Oklahoma State just officially offered me on Friday," said Koenig. "I have the six offers, but I have also heard from Alabama. They say they are interested in me and they have my tape.

"West Virginia is interested and so is Florida State, Florida, and LSU. I am really excited about the offers from Oklahoma State and Wake Forest. Then for Florida, LSU, and Alabama to come through and be interested is great. I want to take visits and see these schools."

Daniel just finished up basketball season where he helped Cape Coral to a 16-7 season that ended with a loss in the first round of regional.

"We played pretty good but got upset in that first playoff game, so we are through," said Koenig.

In the past he has also played baseball but he is now just playing football and basketball and will use the spring to get in the weight room and improve on a 280-pound bench press max and a 375-pound squat.

Koenig is getting a lot of attention early from a lot of schools and the questions that OSU fans likely would most want to ask the Cowboy legacy would be if his brothers having played at Oklahoma State has an impact on him and if it is possibly an advantage?

"I'm fine with it," said Koenig of Oklahoma State and their offer. "I like the offensive line coach (Joe Wickline), my parent like him and Oklahoma State and the facilities and the campus. Yes, I think it helps."
