Several hidden gems in ’09, Part III
One of the main reasons for Oklahoma State’s recent rise has been quality evaluation on the recruiting trail. Running back Kendall Hunter, a two-time All-American, was a hidden gem out of Tyler, Texas and 2010 Biletnikoff Award winner Justin Blackmon was an overlooked prospect out of Plainview High School in Ardmore.
Here’s a look back at OSU’s recruiting Class of 2009 with a detailed look at each recruit, their ranking when they arrived on campus and their production or potential in the two years since joining the program. (In an effort to keep this from being the longest blog known to man, I’ll break the class into several different blogs in the next few days)
Overall class rankings
Rivals ranking: #36
Scout ranking: #45
ESPN.com ranking: unranked
Horace Hubbard, defensive tackle
Rivals ranking: 3 stars
Scout ranking: 2 stars
Other offers: Arizona, Kansas State
Impact on the program: Hubbard made one tackle during his Cowboy career.
Analysis: Defensive tackle is often a spot where you’re forced to take risks. This risk didn’t work out.
