Oklahoma State enthused to open football camp

STILLWATER — The Oklahoma State Cowboys kick off their fall football camp today on the practice fields just east of Gallagher-Iba Arena. The excitement around OSU’s program is approaching new levels as Mike Gundy begins his fifth season as head coach.

The Cowboys will work out from 4:45 p.m. until 7:10 p.m. with the first hour open to the public.

Today’s practice will give the Cowboys’ coaching staff its first opportunity to see the 2009 recruiting class in action. Strength and conditioning coach Rob Glass has been overseeing the Cowboys’ newcomers this summer.

"Coach Glass said with our incoming class, we have good talent,” Gundy said. "Guys that tested well and seem to be the type of players we want to recruit.”

Gundy said the Cowboys could use additional depth at receiver, tight end and safety.

Cornerback is another position with the opportunity for a newcomer to make an impact right away.

But with the increased talent level throughout the Cowboys program, Gundy said he expects a low percentage of newcomers to see the field their first year on campus.

"You’d like for some to (play immediately) but it’s a low percentage,” he said. "In most cases, they aren’t ready to play. If they can handle it (physically and mentally), we’ll put them out there.”
