Recruiting: OU offer on the way for MWC TE?

Midwest City, Okla. tight end Bradley Dedeaux talks recruiting and about his interest in Oklahoma.

Bradley Dedeaux, TE, 6'4, 240, 4.6, MIDWEST CITY, OKLAHOMA:

Bradley Dedeaux is a true old fashioned tight end that can block at the line of scrimmage and one that is quick enough to get off the line as a receiver.

"That is the strong point of my game," said Dedeaux. "I can still do everything that a tight end needs to do, and that is the strong point of my recruiting."

Dedeaux started at Midwest City as a sophomore at tight end, but he also plays a little at defensive end. This year, Dedeaux is getting an opportunity to catch the ball a little bit more as he has hauled in 20 passes for 265 yards and seven touchdowns.

Bradley can bench 300 pounds, squats 590 and has posted a 34-inch vertical jump. He went to the Kansas camp a year ago where he was offered by the Jayhawks. He has also attended the OSU camp before his junior year. The Cowboys have also offered at this point along with Kansas, Tulsa and SMU.

"I have those four offers and I have two more that are coming," said Dedeaux. "I have two more that are coming from OU and Texas Tech."

What does Dedeaux think about his recruiting options at this point?

"I haven't really put much thought into the recruiting process because I want to concentrate on my senior season," said Dedeaux. "It seems to be going well, but I want to wait until my season is over before I really start to think about it. I don't have a favorite."

What are his thoughts on OU?

"They are a strong choice because they are known for having a strong program," said Dedeaux. "The way their tight end situation sets up for next year I think I could go in there next year and contribute. They are losing two seniors and they don't have much depth at all at tight end."

Dedeaux starts in hoops for the Bombers outstanding basketball team, and he is favored to win state in the shot (55'0) this season. Last year was the first year Dedeaux threw the shot.

He is still waiting for a test score.
