Recruiting: Spurgeon Likes His Visit To OSU

Offensive tackle prospect Trent Spurgeon of Owasso, Okla., and his parents were in Stillwater on Friday to watch Oklahoma State's final spring practice of the first week and the last session before coaches and players went on spring break. Trent along with his mother, Tammy, and father, Chuck, watched the practice and took a tour of the facilities.

"It was interesting watching the practice and since I missed Junior Day at OSU this was a good way to see what I missed and even more," said Spurgeon, who up close is a legitimate 6-7 and looks to weight 270 to 275 pounds.

"I thought it went really well and this may have been better than being at Junior Day. I got to see the whole practice and I really like the coach, Coach (Joe) Wickline, and the way he does things. I like a lot of the things they do and the facilties, we got to our those and htey are going to be really good."

Spurgeon said Oklahoma State is the only school that he planned to check out during the spring break period, which for him stretches out over the rest of this week.

"I have a track meet this Friday at the University of Tulsa," said Spurgeon, filling in that he throws the shot put and the discus for the Owasso track team. Spurgeon just wrapped up basketball season where he averaged 3.2 points and 2.2 rebounds a game for the Rams. "Other than that (track) I am not doing much for spring break, just hanging out."

Speaking of hanging out, that is what the Spurgeons did after practice on Friday at OSU as Trent confirmed that his parents and Coach Wickline ordered out pizza and had a pizza party in the offensive line meeting room.

"That was fun too, and my folks had a good time," said Spurgeon of the post practice gathering.

Oklahoma State offered Spurgeon 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 because of his 3.99 grade point average. However, it is his size and his ability on the offensive line that really make him one of the top prospects in Oklahoma for this next season. He had good teachers in playing on the same offensive line with future OSU freshman Brandon Webb and future Kansas freshman Gavin Howard.
