Recruiting: Mother Nature Wrecks Camp

STILLWATER - Mother Nature put a wrench into Oklahoma State's plans for a final one-day minicamp on Sunday. Some 40 seniors- and juniors-to-be in high school showed up to get instruction and show off their talents for the Oklahoma State coaching staff, but right as the camp was to start a big summer thunderstorm rolled into Stillwater.

The thunder, lightning, and rain kept on for the better part of two hours and after meeting with the players on hand and giving them a tour of the facilities the event turned into more of a junior day.

After all, when you end up with lemons then you make lemonade. The players did receive and were charged for Nike dri-fit workout shirts, but the rest of the money was refunded and they were sent on their way. The event could come in handy for recruiting. However, due to no workout we saw very little of the players on hand.

We do know that Navarro (Texas) J.C. offensive lineman and Oklahoma State commitment Michael Bowie was around with a Navarro assistant coach for what amounted to an unofficial visit.

We also know that wide receiver and Cowboy commitment David Glidden of Mustang, Okla., was on hand as we spoke with a pair of Mustang High School assistant coaches that told us Glidden was there.

We also saw several other prospects including linebacker Tristan Eche of Waco, Texas, and a trio of Oklahoma high school offensive line prospects in Kyle Osborn of Tuttle, Trint Jenkins of Victory Christian, and Brian Rawlinson of Oologah. Edmond Memorial athlete Kameron Doolittle was also there.

There were some 40 athletes that were in attendance including a pair of underclassmen from South Grand Prarie High School. Former Oklahoma State kicker and punter Cole Farden brought standout quarterback Jared Johnson and running back Leonard Akins.

Stillwater High School quarterback Jerame Littell, the son of Oklahoma State women's assistant head coach Jim Littell, was there along with his classmate and tremendous receiver Jesse Vester.
