Recruiting: Sorenson Works On Getting Bigger

The last time we checked in with Oklahoma State quarterback commitment Nate Sorenson he was making a golden haul at the end of the school year. Sorenson helped his Texas High School (Texarkana, Texas) capture the gold medal in the 4x200 relay at the Texas State Track Meet. Then he helped the baseball team to the 4A State Championship the next week.

That kind of effort deserves some vacation and the 6-2, 208-pound Sorenson has had some vacation. Wait a second, did that say Sorenson weighs 208! Correct and he reports it might be 209 pounds. He has put on 15 pounds this summer.

"It (summer) has been going great," said Sorenson. "It is by design, and I haven't lost any speed. I can still run. I would like to be about 217. I've done it by working in the weight room and eating. I eat like six full meals a day. I eat a full meal every two hours. I feel like I'm eating all the time."

As for the vacation?

"We just got back last Sunday from Destin, Florida," said Sorenson. "It was really nice. I did some surfing. We saw a guy walking down the beach with a surfboard and I asked if I could rent it and we went surfing for hours. I also did some parasailing and then just hanging out at the beach with friends."

As for working out, there had been plenty of that. Since Texas High did not partake of spring football they get to open fall camp earlier. In fact, the Tigers will be practicing before the Cowboys as they start in Texarkana on Aug. 3.

"We've done some 7-on-7 in our intersquad drills," explained the talented quarterback of their summer football activity. "We don't go out and do anything outside. Coach Norton doesn't like to do much of that. Last summer we were going to scrimmage (7-on-7) with Atlanta, but they only showed up once. They didn't want any more beatings."

Sorenson feel like he is sharp and Texas High will open the season in a big way hosting Tyler (John Tyler). They actually play their first four games in Texarkana, all at home except week two when they travel five minutes across the state line to play Arkansas High of Texarkana, Ark. >br>
This weekend Sorenson said he was excited as he was invited to Rivals Top 100 National Prospect Camp at OU in Norman. I don't think Cowboy fans have anything to worry about as Sorenson is rock solid on OSU.
