Top WR prospect cancels OSU visit
By Scott Wright
Former Oklahoma State assistant coach Trooper Taylor came in as an ace recruiter, and though he never landed the big fish from the recruiting sea, Taylor did make players who wouldn’t generally look at OSU to consider the Cowboys.
Meet Rueben Randle.
Ranked by Rivals.com as the No. 1 prospect in the nation at any position, the receiver from Bastrop, La., had scheduled a visit to Stillwater this weekend. On Monday, Taylor took a job at Auburn, and on Thursday, reports surfaced that Randle had decided not to visit OSU. Instead, he has scheduled an official visit to — you guessed it — Auburn.
Sources have confirmed the reports, so it looks like OSU will have to look elsewhere for another receiver in the 2009 class.
The top candidate in that group is Cobi Hamilton from Texarkana, Texas, who is expected to visit this month.
In coaching news, there’s nothing new regarding positions being filled, but Robert Matthews’ future continues to be a mystery. OSU’s current recruiting coordinator is a candidate for a promotion, either to an on-field position or the vacant director of operations position. But his wife and former OSU women’s golf coach, Laura Matthews, is among the candidates and has interviewed for the same position at Oregon. Laura Matthews resigned during the fall at OSU.
