Recruiting: Who Were The Gundy Camp Stars?

The Oklahoma State Mike Gundy Football Camp concludes on Saturday morning and on Friday we went out and eyeballed some of the talent assembled at the three-day padded camp for high school players. The camp drew more than 200 campers. The Cowboy coaching staff will head south for some guest coaching duties at some camps and will be back to host a one-day camp for high school prospects on June 14.

Here are some of the standouts we saw at the three-day camp. There are not many senior prospects for the 2010 class on hand, just a few we noticed.

Weston Chenault is a real good looking prospect from A&M Consolidated High School in College Station, Texas. The 6-4, 265-pounder is a good looking player and appeared to do well in the drills with offensive line coach Joe Wickline. Chenault is a player that likely will have to prove himself during the upcoming season.

Tight end/defensive end Cody Nall is a good looking player that is 6-6, 240 pounds. The question on Nall is whether he is quick enough to play tight end or defensive end, or if his college future may be on the offensive line.

Alan Wright out of Cave City, Ark., is 6-4, 285 pounds and can really move his feet. The jumbo defensive tackle is at a school that has only had football for two years. He has been offered by Arkansas State and is heading to Arkansas camp after this weekend. As a sophomore he had 59 tackles, 14 tackles for loss, 6 sacks, and 2 fumbles recovered. As a junior he had 65 tackles, 16 tackles for loss, 8 sacks, and 2 fumbles recovered.

Running back David Glasco arrived in Stillwater in to work out on Friday and the 5-10, 175-pound speedy back out San Antonio (Wagner), Texas, has great bloodlines as his dad played for the New Orleans Saints. Glasco rushed for 717 yards as a sophomore and for close to 1,200 yards last season. He is also a triple jumper in track and had a best of 44 feet, 2 1/2 inches last season. Glasco is also trying to show off to college coaches that he can play on the defensive side of the ball.

Now for juniors attending the camp, and there were a bunch of them. The best looking may be La'el Collins out of Baton Rouge (Redemptorist), La. Collins was looking very good in the drills with Wickline and it appeared Wickline liked what he saw of the 6-4, 275-pound junior-to-be that has a listed forty time of 5.44 and is already drawing recruiting interest from SEC schools.

Another junior of jumbo size is Austin Beck of Nowata, Okla. Beck is from a family of OSU graduates and fans including both his parents. The 6-7, 280-pound Beck is good looking and will definitely get plenty of attention this upcoming season from the OSU staff.

Tyler Ewy is a 6-3, 250-pound offensive line prospect out of Louisburg, Kan., that is already on radar screens.

Finally, the Canadian, Texas crew was there and impressive. Perhaps the most impressive is defensive end Ryan Alexander. The 6-2, 225-pound Alexander is very athletic and is a physical player. Taylor Chappell is a 6-5, 270-pound offensive and defensive tackle prospect.

Another visitor from Canadian was 5-11, 190-pound quarterback Brandon Robinson, who has already earned All-State honors. Robinson is actually a senior this season. He is undersized, but he will be playing college football somewhere.

Again, camp concludes on Saturday morning but many of the top prospects will be ack on June 14 or in July for another one-day camp opportunity.
