Recruiting: Cowboys Add WR In Fooks

There had been a buzz lately that Oklahoma State had found a wide receiver prospect during the evaluation period in May and that the Cowboys could end up with another new player for the upcoming 2009 season. It was in May that Oklahoma State added NEO A&M offensive lineman Levy Adcock, and now the Cowboys have added a wide receiver in Dameron Fooks out of Fullerton C.C. in California.

Fooks is a 6-3, 210-pound receiver, who admits that he has not run a forty since he was in high school, so his speed is a little of an unknown.

It is known that he can catch the ball at the junior college level as he had 20 receptions for 302 yards last season as a freshman. That's an average of 15.1 yards per catch. He had five touchdowns and his longest reception covered 44 yards.

Fooks is originally out of Santa Fe Springs, Calif., where he played quarterback and safety in high school.

"Yes, I committed earlier," said Fooks when we called. "I visited Arizona this weekend and it was really between those schools. My decision to go to OSU was really just the coaching staff, Coach (Gunter) Brewer and Coach (Mike) Gundy. The way they do things made me very comfortble.

"It was the way they made me feel on the visit. I got to go home with Coach Brewer to his house and meet his family. It really made me feel at home."

Fooks said he has four years to play three at Oklahoma State. He said he has plans to be in school at OSU in July for the second semester of summer school. He is, of course, eligible for the upcoming 2009 season.

He also said he is undecided on his major. "I'm not sure, my problem is I like too many things," he said.

One thing is now for sure, he likes Oklahoma State.
