Owasso's Keon Hatcher, an Oklahoman All-State wide receiver, went on an official visit to Oklahoma State this weekend.

In a text message, the Arkansas commit told The Oklahoman the visit was “going great,” but that he remains committed to the Razorbacks, “for right now.”

He has been committed to Arkansas since August, but received his OSU offer in late November.

Hatcher, who was a key player on Owasso's run to the Class 6A semifinals during his senior year, caught 20 touchdown passes and had 1,610 yards receiving.

MICKENS PICKS UP OSU OFFER, VISITING THIS WEEKEND

Los Angeles athlete Jaydon Mickens picked up an offer from Oklahoma State days after an impressive performance in the Semper Fi-All American game in Arizona, Rivals.com reported.

Mickens, rated by Rivals as the No. 13 athlete in the class of 2012, said running backs coach Jemal Singleton made the offer shortly after he returned home from the game.

Mickens told Rivals that Singleton said he would “be perfect for their offense.”

“He told me that they don't want to bring me in and sit on the bench or redshirt or anything like that,” Mickens said. “He wanted me to come in and play right away.”

Oklahoma State is coming in late for Mickens — it is less than three weeks until National Signing Day on Feb. 1 — but the four-star prospect said he is interested in the Cowboys' program. He is in Stillwater visiting this weekend.

He has already visited Washington and will visit Oregon next weekend.
