Cowboys Get a Find On Rainy Night

The wind howled and the rain came Sunday night, putting a damper on Oklahoma State's one-day minicamp for high school seniors and juniors but apparently offensive line coach Joe Wickline found a prize as the Cowboys gained a commitment from offensive line prospect Devin Davis of Nacogdoches, Texas.

Davis is off the radar screen a little but the 6-5, 249-pounder is very athletic and has also played basketball and throws the shot in track. Davis averaged 5.2 points and 5.0 rebounds a game in hoops but said he is finished with basketball and will now concentrate on football.

"Yes sir, I committed to Oklahoma State on Sunday," said Davis when asked if he had some good news to share.

"They have been watching me and Coach Wickline came down to our spring football and watched me some more. He told me he wanted me to come to their camp in Marshall. I did and I had a good time and got to meet Coach (Mike) Gundy. I really like him.

"Coach (Wickline) told me I needed to come to campus for that camp and he might have an offer for me. I was there and when I realized that they wanted me I wanted to tell them I'm committed," Davis added.

Davis is an athletic prospect who will grow into his frame as he hits the weight room more and focuses on football. He told us he has a 275-pound bench press max now and a 365 squat, which will certainly increase.

He is a left tackle for Nacogdoches, which finished with a 3-7 record last season but had good offensive numbers.

"I liked Oklahoma State a lot and they have great facilities," added Davis. "I like Coach Wickline and Coach Gundy. My parents are happy with my decision. It is good."

Davis is not a real talkative young man and said he prefers to do his talking on the field. He is apparently a good student with a 3.0 GPA and plans to major mechanical engineering.

He is the 15th commitment in the Oklahoma State 2011 recruiting class and is likely the last offensive line commitment in the class.
