Recruiting: Sorenson Says It 'Was Electric'

Quarterback Nate Sorenson of Texarkana (Texas High), Texas had been to the Bedlam game last season but one of the two Cowboys quarterback commitments in the class had not been to an Oklahoma State game this season until Saturday night.

"It was pretty electric," said Sorenson of the Halloween experience at Boone Pickens Stadium after seeing the Cowboys game with Texas along with his parents on his official visit to OSU.

"I was at the Bedlam game last season and that was two times as loud last night," added the 6-2, 200-pound speedster quarterback.

Sorenson had his own electric moment on Friday night before heading to Stillwater for the visit as he guided his Tigers offense on a last minute 65-yard game winning drive against Hallsville in a game that clinched the 4A playoffs for Texas High.

"Yes, it was really exciting because I had never had one of those last minute, last second drives to win a game and it meant even more since it clinched a playoff spot for us," said Sorenson.

Sorenson was 5-of-5 passing on that drive which ended when Sorenson spiked the ball and Texas High brought on their kicker for a short field goal to win it 12-10.

Texas High is 5-3 on the season and will play Longview Pine Tree this coming week. Sorenson said he does not know his stats, yardage, touchdown, etc. "All I'm really concerned about is the 'W' column," said Sorenson.

As for his visit this past weekend, he added that it wasn't real critical as both he and his parents had been to Oklahoma State on multiple occasions.

"I've seen everything but it was neat to see it completely finished," he said. "I got to see it with the couches and the televisions in the locker room. The visit really went well and I liked hanging out with everybody and you could talk to everybody. This was a really good time."

Sorenson was hosted on his visit by Cowboys tight end Cooper Bassett.
