OSU recruiting notebook: Wagoner's Kevin Peterson visiting Stillwater

BY JASON KERSEY AND GINA MIZELL, Staff Writers Published: January 21, 2012

Wagoner's Kevin Peterson, who committed to Oklahoma on Dec. 18, is in Stillwater this weekend on an official visit to Oklahoma State.

Wagoner football coach Dale Condict said in a text message that the departures of defensive coordinator Brent Venables and secondary coach Willie Martinez led Peterson to want to at least visit OSU. Condict also said that Cowboys coach Mike Gundy made an in-house visit to Peterson last Monday.

Peterson picked up offers from both OU and OSU after leading Wagoner to its first-ever football state championship with his play at both running back and defensive back. He was The Oklahoman's 2011 Defensive Player of the Year.

As a senior, Peterson rushed for 1,621 yards and 25 touchdowns, and recorded 42 tackles and three interceptions on defense.


Receiver Jhajuan Seales, from Port Arthur Memorial High School in Texas, had no college offers coming into his senior year.

He was used sparingly during his junior season, but caught 54 passes for 1,207 yards and 13 touchdowns as a senior.

Since then, his recruiting interest has skyrocketed. He committed to Houston last Sunday, but then received an offer from Oklahoma State on Tuesday. He is in Stillwater visiting this weekend and will visit Houston next week, a source told the Beaumont Enterprise.

After his big senior year, he received offers from UNLV and Houston, as well as FCS programs Lamar, Stephen F. Austin and Northwestern State. Seales first worked out for OSU about two weeks ago and is being recruited by Kasey Dunn.

“He's a big-play receiver with great speed, great hands and a heck of a vertical leap,” Memorial coach Kenny Harrison told the Enterprise. “He is just explosive. He knows how to read coverages and has a great knowledge of the game.”


Defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah, who committed to the Cowboys in early September, is visiting Stillwater for the first time this weekend.
