Recruiting: Anthony, His Mom Enjoy OSU

It was one of, if not the biggest official visit weekend in the history of Oklahoma State football recruiting with 18 all committed prospects coming in for their official visits. One of the biggest visitors was 6-4, 312-pound offensive lineman Gerron Anthony out of Texas high school powerhouse Tyler John Tyler.

"Yes sir, It was great," answered Anthony on how the weekend went as he spoke to us while traveling home. "I can honestly say I can see myself up there for school right now. That is how comfortable it felt. It felt like I was already there."

Anthony made the tripto Stillwater with his mother, Beverly, and he was hosted by redshirt freshman offensive linemen Brandon Webb.

"My mom really liked how everybody was like a real family," added the All-State player from Texas. "We ate good every day and the facilities are unbelievable. It is cool that all the athletes can go down to the weight room anytime they want and work out."

Anthony said he gets along well with his recruiting coach and position coach in co-offensive coordinator and offensive line coach Joe Wickline. He also said he was glad he got to meet and really seemed to jell with the offensive line and some of the defensive backs.

We also had not talked to Anthony since he played in the Max Emfinger All-American Bowl a couple a week ago in Round Rock, Texas. His West team was a winner in the game.

"It went well and we did good," explained Anthony. "We had some good cutback plays (running game) and I had two or three pancakes. You know all three Cowboys did good down there (Stephen Maeweather and Deion Imade also played)."

As for this past weekend, Anthony was really happy to meet his new teammates, but also his new classmates.

"We pretty much met everybody and we're all ready."
