Recruiting: Hedgepeth Has Great Visit

Cornerback Devin Hedgepeth was back home in Derby, Kan., from his official visit to Oklahoma State and had just finished an afternoon nap. Hedgepeth made the trip to Stillwater this weekend with his dad, mom, and sisters.

"It went pretty well because my family got to see a lot of the stuff that my dad and I had already seen," said the 6-0, 185-pound cornerback prospect that has been committed to Oklahoma State for a couple of months.

"It was some of the things that have always stuck out. The quality of everything like the facilities. Everything there is top notch," Hedgepeth continued.

Hedgepeth has already earned All-State honors and Kansas Top 11 honors for his performance this season on a team that was at the 1-yard line when the clock ran out before they could get the winning score against Wichita Heights in the state semifinal game. He played both wide receiver and defense this season.

He had nearly 1,000 yards receiving and also was solid on defense with one interception despite few teams trying to challenge him.

Hedgepeth said the Cowboys have made it clear that he will be a cornerback and he will get an early jump on competing for playing time. He will join linebacker Caleb Lavey of Celina, Texas, and quarterback Johnny Deaton of Sand Springs as early enrollees in January.

Hedgepeth said he is looking forward to building relationships with his coaches and teammates.

"That was a big thing for me this weekend was to spend time with all the coaches and I really enjoyed getting to know them more," said Hedgepeth.

"They all have different personalities and and I really like them. It was great to be around the players and they are cool. They told me that a lot of people were gone for break so we really hung around their apartment and played video games. My host was Daytawion Lowe and he is a good guy," he added.

Hedgepeth is rock solid and looking forward to the holidays. He said they may go visit family in North Carolina as he is counting on being busy over the holidays for the next four or five years.
