Guess The Recruiting Class: Installment 10

Here we go for try number 10. I actually think we are getting close. The recent activity hasn't done our record much good as we had offensive tackle Evan Washington of DeSoto, Texas, on our list and he bingoed for LSU. We knew about Chris Dinkins but did not have him on the list as the very talented athlete from Tyler Lee swtiched a soft commit with TCU to a solid commitment to OSU last weekend.

On this version we add another Tyler product –– Anthony Gerron –– to the offensive line. Of course, we add Dinkins. We also believe there is a good chance you will see Joe Okafor on the Cowboy commitment list someday. Okay, it's a prediction.

For first time readers of this feature this is our exercise of trying to guess how the Cowboys final roll call for the recruiting class of 2010 will look when they sign on the dotted line on Wednesday, Feb. 3, 2010.

Our batting average started out strong and now it has leveled off. Here's a look at the scoreboard.

Players committed before we started: 3
Players that committed that we did not have listed: 2
Players we had listed that have committed: 7
Players we had listed at the time they committed: 6
Players we had listed that committed to other schools: 7

Here we go...

*QB: Johnny Deaton, 6-3, 185, 4.6, Sand Springs (Charles Page), Okla.
He has been playing well in 7-on-7 coming off the ankle injury. He was a spectator at the half-day camp.

*QB: Nathan Sorenson, 6-4, 195, 4.5, Texarkana (Texas), Texas
Three-sport star won a state title this spring in track (4x200) and in baseball. Is going to Norman for Rivals Top 100 prospect camp.

*WR: Montra Nelson, 6-3, 210, 4.6, Arlington (Bowie), Texas
Nelson really drew great reviews from the Texas 7-on-7 State Championships in College Station, Texas.

WR: Darius White, 6-4, 210, 4.5, Fort Worth (Dunbar), Texas
He visited OSU unofficially on July 18 and according to several sources had a great visit. He is one of the best wide receivers in the nation.

*WR: Kevin Johnson, 6-2, 195, 4.4, Houston (Cy Ridge), Texas
Johnson and family were in camp and he really showed off, not sure he missed a ball. Yes, he is fast.

*WR: Chris Dinkins, 6-2, 210, 4.4, Tyler (Lee), Texas
Changed his commitment from TCU to OSU after an unofficial visit July 18 to Stillwater. He played safety, but will add quarterback and wide receiver this season. He is an excellent athlete.

OL: Daniel Koenig, 6-6, 260, 5.1, Cape Coral, Fla.
OSU will be the last stop on a five-school tour that starts this week and ends on July 31.

OL: Denton Simek, 6-6, 285, 5.2, Prague, Okla.
Working hard this summer on the farm. He might very well turn out to be the best OL prospect in Oklahoma this season.

OL: Anthony Gerron, OL, 6-3, 305, 5.0, Tyler (John Tyler), Texas
Gerron is standout in basketball that can dunk. He is athletic and has quick feet.

OL: Jacob Jenkins, 6-3, 255, 4.9, Gilmer, Texas
He is expected to make the OSU camp on July 25.

DT: Calvin Barnett, 6-3, 315, 5.4, Tulsa (Washington), Okla.
Another hot property, Barnett and his mother made an unofficial visit earlier this summer and he is expected to be at the July 25 camp.

DT: Diamonte Wheeler, 6-2, 255, 4.95, Arlington (Bowie), Texas
Wheeler has narrowed it down to five: Oklahoma State, Iowa State, Nebraska, Kansas, and Kansas State.

DT: Chris Littlehead, 6-4, 300, 5.2, Tahlequah (Sequoyah), Okla.
He would make a very attractive one technique. He plays both ways and plays well on both sides.

*DE: Chase Rome, 6-3, 285, 4.75, Columbia (Rock Bridge), Mo.
A 4-star recruit in our book, we're smarter than the star gazers. Rome is recruiting (for OSU) and recently was offered by four other schools. He's solid.

DE: Joe Okafor, 6-5, 245, 4.7, Bellaire, Texas
No relation to the Okafor at Texas or the Okafor at Texas Tech, this Okafor can really rush the passer. He is also being recruited by schools to play Division I basketball.

*LB: Stephen Maeweather, 6-3, 215, 4.6, Houston (Sharpstown), Texas
Very athletic linebacker that committed to the Cowboys early. He is perfect for OLB.

*LB: Caleb Lavey, 6-4, 214, 4.7, Celina, Texas
Another 4-star kind of player and Lavey looks to be the man inside at MLB. He has worked very hard and is coming off a surgery for shin splints and doing well.

*LB: Kris Catlin, 6-1 1/2, 215, 4.6, San Antonio (Madison), Texas
Was one of the first LBers that OSU offered and was almost always near the top of the list. He brought two of his teammates to OSU for an unofficial visit.

Star: Synjyn Days, 6-1, 200, 4.5, Powder Springs (Hillgrove), Ga.
Great kid and may be one of the Georgia kids willing to head to Big 12 country. His younger, bigger brother Jabari is part of the equation, a good part.

CB: Eric Bennett, 5-11, 165, 4.45, Tulsa (Washington), Okla.
Part of that Tulsa Washington state champion, Bennett is a natural for corner. He is also expected for the July 25 half-day camp.

CB: Ciante Evans, 6-0, 170, 4.45, Arlington (Seguin), Texas
Evans has been on OSU campus twice and professes to love it in Stillwater.

*CB: Larry Stephens, 6-0, 180, 4.5, Galena Park (North Shore), Texas
He is the second straight big cornerback prospect from North Shore; Andrae May is at OSU.

*S: Deion Imade, 6-0, 175, 4.4, Rowlett, Texas
He needed to be six foot and he was for Cowboys to be interested.

S: Tre'Vante Porter, 6-0, 180, 4.5, Midwest City (Carl Albert), Okla.
Plans to commit in the early fall. He is also supposed to be in Stillwater on July 25.

*Athlete: Justin Gilbert, 6-0, 178, 4.35, Huntsville, Texas
He blazed that 4.35 in camp in Texas and is rapidly rising on lots of charts and lists.
