Marcell Ateman, a wide receiver who has committed to OSU, plans to attend his first Cowboys football game in a couple weeks, but he was busy helping his current team Friday night.
The 6-foot-4, 185-pound Ateman had four touchdowns and 114 receiving yards on seven catches Friday night in Wylie (Texas) East's 46-38 win over Wylie High.
He had TD catches of 9, 22, 29 and 42 yards in the victory.
Ateman had planned to attend OSU's game against Texas last week, but instead will be in the stands for the Cowboys' next home game, Oct. 20 vs. Iowa State.
JUNIOR DT LIKES COWBOYS
Hiawatha (Kan.) defensive tackle Peyton Newell is one of the most highly sought-after juniors on Oklahoma State's offer list, and the 6-foot-3, 280-pounder was pleased with his visit to Stillwater last week.
Newell toured the campus and got to visit with defensive coordinator Bill Young.
“I got to spend about 30 minutes with Coach Young in the defensive line room. He just showed me the scouting report and went through a few plays but you could tell he was in game mode,” Newell told Rivals.com.
“Oklahoma State has always been in my top schools and any time I go down there I like it more and more.”
Newell has more than a dozen offers from the likes of Nebraska, Missouri and Kansas State, among others.
DEL RIO GUIDES VALOR TO EASY WIN
OSU quarterback commit Luke Del Rio's arm wasn't needed much in Valor Christian's 49-0 rout of Castle View (Colo.) Friday night.
Del Rio was 10-of-15 passing for 106 yards with three touchdowns and an interception, his first in five games.
For the season, Del Rio has completed 64.3 percent of his passes for 898 yards with eight touchdowns and two picks.
