OSU insider in-depth: Larry Stephens
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 tomorrow when I rank OSU’s commitments including their chances of having an immediate impact in Stillwater.
Larry Stephens, Galena Park (Texas) North Shore
Ht, Wt: 5-10, 180
Vitals: 4.6 in 40
Picked OSU over… Baylor, Houston, SMU, Miami (Ohio)
Pros: Stephens is a playmaker with excellent ball skills. As a defender, he goes after the ball when it is in the air as if he’s the intended receiver. He has good athleticism, coverage ability and is a willing tackler. Willing to be physical around the line of scrimmage both in pass coverage and the run game.
Cons: Does not possess elite speed.
Expect an impact in… 2011. I’d expect Stephens to redshirt but since the Cowboys need additional depth at cornerback, he could play as a true freshman.
Here are some highlights of North Shore and Stephens:
