Recruiting: Cowboys Make Flowers' List

The Oklahoma State Cowboys have made the list of one of the top wide receivers in the class of 2011 in pass catcher deluxe Hakeem Flowers of Greenville (Wade Hampton), S.C. The 6-2, 175-pound Flowers has 35 offers plus interest from many more schools and right now he really isn't eliminating anybody.

"I heard from Oklahoma State last week and they told me that they were offering me," said Flowers. "It was Coach (Gunter) Brewer, the wide receivers coach and he explained to me a little about Oklahoma State.

"I have no problem going away from home to school. It really doesn't matter as far as location. I'm having a lot of fun right now and nobody really stands out," added Flowers when asked if he was more impressed with any scholarship offers he has received so far.

"I want to check them all out and see who's who and then go from there."

Among the schools on Flowers list besides Oklahoma State are fellow Big 12 schools like Nebraska and Texas Tech. Then there is Arkansas, Auburn, Cincinnati, Duke, Florida State, Clemson, LSU, Maryland, Michigan, Notre Dame, North Carolina State, Miami, Rutgers, Syracuse, Tennessee, Virginia Tech and more.

Flowers caught around 50 passes for more than 800 yards and eight touchdowns this past season as a junior. He also rushed for more than 400 yards and three more touchdowns. He had a 97-yard kickoff returns for a touchdown that was a highlight.

Flower also runs track with his events being the 100 and 200 meters and the 4x100 meter relay. He reports a 205-pound max on the bench press, 315 pounds on the squat, and 205 pounds on the power.

Flowers is an excellent student with a 3.4 GPA and he already has a major and a career in mind.

"I want to major in business management," he said. "I want to own my own business like a restaurant, you know like a Chick-fil-A or something like that."

You can't get a prospect unless you recruit them. Oklahoma State has thrown its hat in and with the new offense in Stillwater under Dana Holgorsen, wide receivers are likely to take notice.
