STILLWATER — With Signing Day 2010 behind us, it is the perfect time to look back and reflect on Oklahoma State’s football recruiting Class of 2009.
There were some players who helped immediately, such as receiver Tracy Moore. There were others who showed playmaking potential during their redshirt seasons, such as receiver Michael Harrison. Here’s a look at the players from the Cowboys’ 2009 recruiting class after one year in the program. → QB Clint Chelf. The former Enid quarterback redshirted during his first year on campus. He will be given the opportunity to battle for the Cowboys’ starting quarterback position, but Chelf needs to elevate his game to beat out Brandon Weeden. →RB Jeremy Smith: His performance against Grambling State had Cowboys fans buzzing about his potential, but a shoulder injury knocked him out for the year. His superb potential remains, and his work ethic is excellent. →RB Dexter Pratt: A big back who showed some flashes during his redshirt season. Pratt still has plenty of work ahead of him with Kendall Hunter and Smith in the same crowded backfield. →FB David Paulsen: A solid contributor on special teams during his freshman year. Plays behind All-Big 12 fullback Bryant Ward. →WR Dameron Fooks: Came up with some key catches during his sophomore season but recently quit the team to focus on academics. →WR Charlie Moore: Redshirted in 2009. Showed promise as a receiver and has excellent size for the position. →WR Michael Harrison: Almost played his way out of a redshirt season on more than one occasion. Teammates spoke highly of Harrison’s ability in practice, and he should flourish with plenty of opportunities to catch the ball in new assistant Dana Holgorsen’s system. →WR Tracy Moore: Played his way out of a redshirt season with his exceptional body control and hands. He’s a solid and willing blocker who can help on special teams. →OL Levy Adcock: Contributed on special teams and could play a lot on the offensive line in 2010. →OL Michael Bowie: Played last season at Navarro Junior College (Texas).
