Here we go...
The biggest change is at punter where we have gone back to Californian Matt Dahr, who is a country guy from Bakersfield that is interested in agriculture and fire fighting, both very strong majors at Oklahoma State. OSU, from an academic standpoint, looks like a much better fit. Dahr is on record as being very interested in the Cowboys.
Notice that one of the top linebackers in Texas, if not the best, in Shaun Lewis is on the list. We think the Cowboys have a real shot at Lewis, and less of one on Kris Catlin.
We dropped Trent Spurgeon as he appears to be heading elsewhere. Evan Washington has continued to show interest. He is a big-time prospect.
We added a wide receiver in Quantavious Leslie, as he continues to claim OSU as his top choice for now.
