Recruiting: Walsh Returns For Orange-White

In what was no less than his third visit to Stillwater during spring football, 2011 quarterback verbal pledge J.W. Walsh out of Denton (Guyer), Texas was on hand to watch the spring game in the drizzle Saturday night at Boone Pickens Stadium.

Some of his 2011 classmates that joined him included Plano West offensive lineman Travis Cross, Glenpool defensive back Isaac Maselera, Mustang wide receiver David Glidden, and his teammate at Guyer in defensive end Jimmy Bean. The 2011 commitment list grew by one with the verbal of cornerback Miketavius Jones of Galena Park (North Shore), Texas.

Walsh was kind of excited because he got to meet some of the incoming freshman class.

"It went great. I got to meet some of the other new recruits and talk to them, but I also was able to meet the 2010 signees which really gives me a look at what the future is going to be at OSU and it looks good," said Walsh of meeting the players that will be in the class ahead of him in school.

"I did meet a couple of the big guys, but I also met this big wide receiver, Montra Nelson out of Arlington Bowie."

Walsh said he thought the offense looked good and was encouraged as he drove home right after the game.

Oklahoma State fans can feel good about Walsh as his early commitment seems as solid as any we can remember. He has been offered by schools since and has not budged. Maybe the short drive helps.

"It's an easy three-hour drive and we just went straight home," he added.

Walsh was in Fort Worth, Texas, on the TCU campus last weekend competing in the Elite 11 quarterback school in Texas.

"There were really some talented quarterbacks there," said Walsh. "They were from all over and not just Texas. It was great to go in there and compete.

"I really felt that I was in the top three of the quarterbacks there, if not one of the best quarterbacks."

Two reporters that atttended told Go that they felt Walsh was the best overall quarterback in the Elite 11. Wlash, who is a typical coach's son and is always looking to get better, said spring football at Denton Guyer begins on Wednesday and he can't wait.
