— The end of spring football at Oklahoma State means the start of an important part of the recruiting season, with coaches on the road traveling to high schools around the country to watch spring practices.

Here's a sample of some of the Cowboys' top targets:

Kyle Allen, quarterback, Scottsdale (Ariz.) Desert Mountain HS

Rivals rating: Four stars

Scout rating: Five stars

Quarterback will be a big focus of this class after the Cowboys did not sign one in 2013. So why not go after Scout's No. 1 prospect at the position? Allen, who this weekend earned a trip to the Elite 11 Finals, visited OSU for the Cowboys' spring finale. His high school coach, Tony Tabor, is from Perkins.

Other offers: Arizona, Arizona State, Boise State, Colorado, Colorado State, Duke, Mississippi, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oregon State, Texas A&M, UCLA, West Virginia, Wisconsin

KD Cannon, wide receiver, Mount Pleasant (Texas) HS

Rivals rating: Four stars

Scout rating: Four stars

Rated the No. 3 receiver in the nation by Rivals, Cannon tallied 102 catches for 1,600 yards and 26 touchdowns in 2012. Looks like an ideal fit for a Big 12 offense.

Other offers: Baylor, Clemson, Houston, Louisiana-Lafayette, Nebraska, Oklahoma, SMU, TCU, Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Vanderbilt, West Virginia

Lorenzo Carter, defensive end, Norcross (Ga.) HS

Rivals rating: Five stars

Scout rating: Five stars

Could Glenn Spencer land another top Georgia talent? Carter recently told Rivals the Cowboys are “the dark horse.” He's ranked the top defensive end in the nation and the ninth-best overall prospect.

Other offers: Alabama, Arkansas, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Louisville, LSU, Miami, Michigan, Mississippi, Mississippi State, Missouri, Nebraska, North Carolina, N.C. State, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oregon, Penn State, South Carolina, Stanford, Syracuse, Tennessee, Texas, USC, Vanderbilt, Wake Forest

Deondre Clark, defensive end, Douglass

Rivals rating: Four stars

Scout rating: Four stars

The younger brother of OSU basketball signee Stevie Clark appears to be SEC-bound.
