“Coach Patterson's cordial to me, and I'm cordial to him,” Gundy said. “We're trying to watch guys, and I'm not telling him who I'm looking at, and he's not telling me who he's looking at. Because sometimes we look at players other schools don't.”
Players on OSU's current roster who also had interest from TCU, according to the OSU media guide, include receiver Torrance Carr, linebackers Alex Elkins, Lyndell Johnson and Caleb Lavey, cornerbacks Justin Gilbert and Devin Hedgepeth, center Jake Jenkins and running back Desmond Roland.
Perhaps the most notable recruiting battle between OSU and TCU was for running back Kendall Hunter, who chose the Cowboys in 2007 and went on to become the school's fourth-all-time leading rusher.
TCU RECEIVER SKYE DAWSON A VERSATILE THREAT
TCU wide receiver Skye Dawson will likely be all over the field Saturday against OSU, as reflected by the weekly Paul Hornung Award for the nation's most versatile player he picked up Monday.
Dawson tallied 248 all-purpose yards in the Horned Frogs' thrilling triple-overtime loss to Texas Tech last week, including 154 yards on a career-high 10 catches, 60 yards on four punt returns and 34 yards on two kickoff returns.
Dawson currently ranks 39th in the nation in all-purpose yards, averaging 129.33 per game.
