The news of Dana Holgorsen’s reported imminent departure for West Virginia rattled the OSU fan base Tuesday and continues to resonate.
With OSU’s recruits, however — particularly one key quarterback recruit, J.W. Walsh – all is calm.
As should be.
Players should never pick a school for the coach and never ever for a coordinator, considering nearly all are in the exit aisle, hoping for a head coaching gig. Players should always opt for the school and the program, is the closest thing they have to a given in their college destination.
Not that all do. Not hardly.
So it was natural to check in with recruits for the Cowboys class of 2011. None are panicking. Or de-committing.
Leave it to Walsh, a coach’s son and the top QB in Texas at Denton Guyer High, to put the proper perspective on what Holgorsen’s departure means in the recruiting landscape. Nothing.
“I’m 100 percent solid on OSU still,” Walsh told the Denton Record-Chronicle.
“I understand when opportunities present themselves to coaches, it’s a business for them and they’re gonna go for what’s best for them.”
Adam Boedeker, a writer with the Denton Record-Chronicle, has followed Walsh’s every step this season, a season that extends to a Texas state title shot on Saturday. Here’s what Boedeker found, along with the comments above, when he checked in with Walsh and teammate Josh Stewart (another OSU commit).
It’s good news for Cowboys fans, just when they need some.
