"It was a great game and we were excited for the basketball team and Coach (Travis) Ford. I'm excited about the game tonight and I won't be there but I have some family that will be. We have some recruiting to take care of tonight," Gundy said.
"It is going to be another good game. I think our team is playing as good as any team in the league right now. I don't know basketball but I know they are playing good against solid teams."
Gundy didn't specify which family members would be at the Ford Center for the game on Friday night with Missouri.
Catlin seemed to pay close attention at practice and then toward the end of the practice he joined a group of recruits with his father to tour the West End Zone facility in Boone Pickens Stadium.
Also at the practice was one of the top offensive line prospects in Oklahoma in Owasso's Trent Surgeon, who was there with his mother and father. Spurgeon is a legit 6-6 and appears to be around 270 pounds. He has already been offered by OSU, among others.
Jenks linebacker Steven Sadler was also at the practice along with his father and was also touring the facilities late in the practice.
Chris Barnett is a sophomore tight end that also plays basketball and on the way up to Stillwater they stopped in Norman at OU, where he was reportedly offered a scholarship by Bob Stoops.
Barnett is a great looking prospect. Jatashun Beachum is a 6-0, 280-pound quarterback/running back that is being recruited as a defensive linemen. Yes, you read that right, Beachum is a 280-pound quarterback and running back. He is a junior.
Others on hand with Coach Barnett included junior linebacker Kenneth Stafford, junior running back Deoni Washington, and junior wide receiver Brandon Jackson. Two other talented sophomores in the group are defensive tackle Keithan English and linebacker Anthony Wallace.
Pattterson, the former head coach at NEO, is very proud that one of his former assistants Don Bigby was recently named the new head coach. Bigby has selected former OSU All-Big Eight defensive tackle Stacy Satterwhite to coach his defensive line. Satterwhite seemed really excited to be in Stillwater viewing the Cowboys practice and enthusiastically greeted head coach Mike Gundy after the practice.
The second group had Darius Hart and Richetti Jones at defensive end, Chris Donaldson at defensive tackle, Shane Jarka at nose tackle, and Jamie Blatnick at defensive end.
