Oklahoma State hosted its largest number of recruits last weekend. But the Cowboys hosted perhaps their most important prospects this weekend.

Two of OSU's top remaining targets — Jenks defensive back Steven Parker and River Ridge (La.) John Curtis linebacker Kenny Young — were scheduled to be on campus, according to Rivals. Both players are four-star prospects ranked in Rivals' top 100 and are currently uncommitted.

Parker's late visit to Stillwater could be regarded as somewhat of a surprise. He has more than 20 offers, including Alabama, Auburn, Baylor, Kansas State, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio State, Oklahoma, TCU, Texas, Texas A&M and Wisconsin. According to Rivals, he's scheduled to visit Auburn on Jan. 31.

Young's other offers include Arkansas, Florida, Florida State, LSU, Miami, Michigan, Mississippi, Tennessee, Texas A&M and UCLA. According to Rivals, he's scheduled to visit UCLA on Jan. 31 and plans to announce his college choice on Signing Day.

Kirk Tucker, a three-star safety from Tucker, Ga., was also scheduled to visit over the weekend. He was a former Stanford commit but did not get admitted to the school. He also has high interest in Oregon and Vanderbilt.


Cowboy running back commitment Sione Palelei missed about half of his senior season after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament.
