Oklahoma State was able to double up its recruiting efforts Saturday with just one family.
Douglass High School players Stephen and Deondre Clark attended the Cowboys' 31-10 win over Iowa State at Boone Pickens Stadium Saturday. Stephen is a senior point guard who is being heavily pursued by Travis Ford and the OSU basketball team.
Deondre is a 6-foot-3, 240-pound junior defensive end who has received a scholarship offer from Mike Gundy's football staff. Deondre had 10 tackles, four sacks and five quarterback hurries Thursday night in a 41-17 win over McLoud.
While Deondre is in no hurry to make a decision between the dozen scholarship offers he currently has, Stephen hopes to end his recruiting in the next few weeks.
In addition to Saturday's football game, Stephen attended Friday's “Homecoming and Hoops” event at Gallagher-Iba Arena, spending time with the team.
The Oklahoman's Super 5 Player of the Year last season, Stephen Clark has made visits to UCLA, Baylor and OSU in the last three weeks, and could make a trip to Florida State as well. He plans to commit in the coming weeks and sign next month during the early signing period.
Cowboys eyeing top junior QBs
The debate as to who is the best junior quarterback in the Oklahoma City area is a tough call, but that player was at Boone Pickens Stadium Saturday.
Edmond Santa Fe's Justice Hansen and Jones' David Cornwell were both in attendance for the Cowboys' victory, one day after each led his team to a crucial district victory Friday night.
Hansen, 6-foot-3, 190 pounds, has thrown for 1,937 yards with 23 touchdowns and five interceptions, while rushing for more than 500 yards and 11 TDs. He currently has scholarship offers from Arkansas and Missouri, and is receiving interest from Oklahoma, where he was scheduled to attend Saturday night.
Cornwell, 6-foot-5, 215 pounds, has thrown for 1,626 yards with 16 touchdowns and five interceptions. His offers are from Indiana and Auburn, though Michigan and Alabama are in pursuit as well. He said on Friday that he was excited for his visit to Stillwater.
“I'm looking to get an offer this weekend,” Cornwell said. “I'm really ready to make the next step, and get five or six schools ready, so I can make my decision and play my senior year committed.”
Guthrie's Callins in attendance
His junior season hasn't gone as planned, but Guthrie's Kai Callins is keeping a positive attitude.
Callins tore his ACL in the Bluejays' 43-0 season-opening win over Duncan.
Saturday, Callins headed right up to road to Stillwater to take in the Cowboys' win over Iowa State.
A week earlier, he was in Dallas for Oklahoma's Red River Rivalry victory.
Callins (5-foot-10, 175 pounds) said his recovery is going well.
“They said I'm ahead of schedule,” Callins said. “I'm just doing the work I need to do to get back as soon as possible.”
Callins, who was to play running back and defensive back for the Bluejays, but he could play a number of positions in college.
The Cowboys have had success recruiting Guthrie players, getting Kye Staley, who is now a senior fullback, and offensive lineman David Washington before that.
