Recruiting: Craig To Visit OSU On June 14

Defensive back Zack Craig of Smithson Valley, Texas, has picked up a pair of offers as Colorado and Texas-San Antonio, the new start-up college football program close by, have offered the 6-2, 180-pound safety. A stand out athlete in track as well, Craig visited Oklahoma State twice this spring, and both his parents graduated from OSU.

He has shown a strong interest in the Cowboys and has also visited Kansas and Baylor. Kansas State has also been recruiting Craig.

Last season Craig had 83 total tackles, 43 unassisted tackles, 4 interceptions, and really developed a knack of blocking kicks with a blocked punt and three blocked field goals. His efforts earned him second team All-District 26-5A honors.

Craig told us he will be back at Oklahoma State for the Cowboys one-day prospect camp on June 14. He is hoping to show the Cowboy staff then just what they are looking for in a safety.

The Colorado offer for Craig is a strong one coming from a solid Big 12 school, but the UTSA offer is really interesting. The Roadrunners will be coached by Larry Coker, the former OSU offensive coordinator and Miami, Fla. head coach. Coker will recruit classes in February and in 2011 before opening play as a FCS program in Division I in the fall of 2011. The goal of the program is to be in FBS and possibly Conference USA by the 2014 season.
