Oklahoma State just got a commitment from Dallas (Texas) playmaker Desmond Roland.
As the Cowboys current class begins to take its final shape it is clear a new hybrid position is emerging in Dana Holgorsen’s offense. The Pokes are recruiting playmakers who are great with the ball in the open field either after the catch or after a handoff.
I would liken it to a Percy Harvin-type role. A slot receiver who ends up in the backfield at times and is constantly in motion and putting defenses at a disadvantage with his open field ability.
Here’s a look at Roland in action. He’s No. 2 in red, although the numbers are hard to read so look for the running back with white sleeves. He’s easy to see as he either gets the ball or is used as a decoy on most plays.
