Recruiting: Lavey Loves OSU More Than Ever

It was a little hard to hear everything linebacker and soon-to-be Oklahoma State freshman Caleb Lavey of Celina, Texas had to say on Sunday. Fresh off of his official visit to Stillwater, Lavey and his dad were in Arlington at Cowboys Stadium -- the OSU bowl destination -- to see the Dallas Cowboys play the San Diego Chargers.

The game was more than an hour away from kickoff but it was still noisy in the background. Noise or not, it was obvious that the four-year starter and Texas Class 3A All-State linebacker loved what he experienced on his visit that precludes his January enrollment and the start of his college life.

"It was awesome," said Lavey. "You can ask my dad and Coach (Glenn) Spencer, both that when I was through with my whole visit I was happier with my decision than I was when I originally made it.

"This decision could not have turned out better for me. I'm serious. It was so much better after I had the chance to see so much more on my trip this weekend," Lavey added.

The 6-4, 225-pound Lavey, who hopes to weigh 235 pounds in time for his freshman season next fall, is a very talented, very smart, and very physical inside linebacker. He has been a stalwart on a defense for one of the most tradition-rich high school programs in the country and has run up some huge stat numbers along with having a lot of team success.

"I can't wait to get started," added Lavey. "I can't wait to get here and become a part of it. My academic meetings were great, but really sitting in the linebacker meetings and learning more and being around the guys is great. I want to learn the things I don't know and I want to be a part of everything. It was also great to hang with Jamie (former Celina teammate and OSU defensive end Jamie Blatnick)."

Lavey is close to finishing high school and earning his degree. He plans to also be around and watch a lot of the Cowboys practices when they get down to the Metroplex to prepare for the 74th edition of the Cotton Bowl and the Jan. 2 meeting with Ole Miss.
