College football recruiting: Tyus Bowser decommits from Oklahoma State

by Ryan Aber and Scott Wright and Jason Kersey and Gina Mizell Published: January 29, 2013

The Sooners' greatest need remains offensive linemen, with only Trinity Valley Community College's Josiah St. John and Houston Stratford's Christian Daimler, both tackles, committed.

The Sooners' primary targets there remain George Adeosun, a tackle from Georgia, Kendall Moore, a tackle from Chicago, and Josh Outlaw, a guard from Georgia.

The two Georgians visited Norman last weekend, while it's still unclear whether Outlaw will visit before signing day.


Bill Young's departure from Oklahoma State has brought change to the Cowboy coaching staff, with new defensive line coach Joe Bob Clements working quickly to establish relationships with the commitments from the 2013 class.

Clements has already made a positive impression on San Antonio (Texas) James Madison defensive tackle Vincent Taylor, who said Clements made a trip to his school earlier this month before his official visit to Stillwater on Jan. 18.

“When I was on my official, there wasn't a time that I walked by, where we walked past each other, and Coach Clements (didn't say), ‘How was your day? How do you like the campus? Is everything good?' ” Taylor said. “Every time I saw him, we would talk to each other in a good way.

“I think Coach Clements, he's going to push me to be the best. I'm looking forward to him coaching me.”


While it's not clear whether Akem will attend Saturday's junior day, there are quite a few recruits expected to be in attendance.

Clark and Parker are expected to be there, as are Edmond Santa Fe quarterback Justice Hansen, Broken Arrow quarterback Coleman Key and Tulsa Memorial tight end MikeQuan Deane among in-state players.

A large group of Texas high schoolers with offers are expected to come as well, including Lewsiville Hebron safety Jamal Adams, Lancaster wide receiver Nick Alexander, Mount Pleasant wide receiver K.D. Cannon, Dallas Carter linebacker Cameron Hampton, Longview defensive tackle Zaycovian Henderson, Brenham athlete Darrion Johnson, Longview wide receiver Dorian Leonard, and West Mesquite safety Dylan Sumner-Gardner.
