Oklahoma State still looking for No. 1 wide receiver
OSU football notebook: Cowboys have plenty of talented wideouts, but no top target yet. Also, Washington State has five freshmen on its two-deep.
Much of Oklahoma State's preseason offensive focus centered on the wide receivers.
The Cowboys can claim a cast of many. Yet, at least for now, they don't have a top target.

"I don't think we have a No. 1 guy," said Cowboys coach Mike Gundy. "We don't have someone in the category of a Dez Bryant or a Rashaun Woods."
What OSU does have is improved depth, with offensive coordinator Dana Holgorsen to using as many as eight wideouts.
"We have a number of guys who we feel like are very capable of making plays," Gundy said. "One of the advantages we have in this system is we can spread them all out."
Said Holgorsen: "We're going to put them in position to make plays and hopefully they will. We'll find out on game day."
Opponent Watch: Washington State
The Cougars have five true freshmen listed on the two-deep heading into Saturday's game at Stillwater.
According to reports out of Pullman, any of the five — wide receiver Marquess Wilson, offensive tackle John Fullington, cornerback Damante Horton, safety Deone Bucannon or kicker Andrew Furney — could start.
Over the past 32 seasons, dating to the formation of the Pac-10 in 1978, only 13 true freshmen have started a season opener for the Cougars. And only twice, in 2004 and 2009, has WSU started multiple true freshmen.
