OSU insider in-depth: Steven Maeweather
By Brandon Chatmon
With recruiting season in full swing, I will be evaluating all 26 prospects who are currently committed to the Oklahoma State football program. I will go in alphabetical order and will post three or four evaluations per day during the next week.
My evaluations will conclude next Friday when I rank OSU’s commitments including their chances of having an immediate impact in Stillwater.
Steven Maeweather, Houston (Texas) Sharpstown
Ht, Wt: 6-2, 203
Vitals: 4.6 in the 40, 245 bench, 38-inch vertical
Picked OSU over… UCLA, Arkansas, Missouri, Houston, Texas Tech, Arkansas and others.
Pros: Maeweather is an excellent athlete who pursues well to the ball. Active player who is always around the ball. A solid tackler with solid technique who puts himself in good position when approaching a ball carrier.
Cons: Plays high at times which hurts his change-of-direction ability and how quickly he can react to what he sees. A bit undersized for the linebacker spot.
Expect an impact in… 2011. Maeweather looks like a redshirt candidate but has the athletic ability to play his way out of a redshirt, especially with all three starters at linebacker graduating.
Here is Maeweather in action (** there is explicit language on this video, so I will just provide a link for you):
