STILLWATER — Saturday's spring finale at Boone Pickens Stadium gave Oklahoma State fans a glimpse of what the 2012 Cowboys will look like.
But not every player expected to make an impact this season was on the field.
Here's a look at the key players who will first arrive at OSU for fall camp or will return from injury.
1. C.J. Curry
One of the gems of the 2012 recruiting class, the 6-2, 210-pound wide receiver out of Flowery Branch, Ga. was rated a four-star prospect by Rivals. The one-time Georgia commit may need to add speed to become a legitimate vertical threat on the outside, but he possesses the strength, athleticism and ball skills to see playing time right away.
2. Trace Clark
The Cowboys will get a huge boost at defensive end when four incoming freshmen arrive, but Clark appears to be the top prospect. Clark, who sports a 6-5, 240-pound frame, is an intelligent player who comes from a family of athletes. He's quick out of his three-point stance and does a good job of using his hands and power to get past offensive linemen. Other freshman ends who will compete to get into the rotation are Eric Davis (Tyler, Texas), Emmanuel Ogbah (Sugar Land, Texas) and Victor Irokansi (Pflugerville, Texas).
3. Dominic Ramacher
The latest player to come to OSU from Texas' Denton Guyer High School, Ramacher was an ESPNU150 recruit as a versatile “athlete.” Ramacher was once J.W. Walsh's backup quarterback and played linebacker, H-back, fullback and tight end in high school. He's expected to start his OSU career on offense as a tight end/hybrid player.
1. David Glidden
Glidden, a redshirt freshman receiver, was held out of the spring finale after suffering a high ankle sprain in the last week of practice. He's expected to be in a cast for 4-6 weeks but will be back in time for the majority of summer workouts. Glidden, a former star at Mustang High School, was getting a large chunk of reps at inside receiver this spring and will likely be the Cowboys' punt returner in 2012.
2. Jonathan Rush
Rush was a starter on the offensive line before a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee against Texas A&M last September ended his 2011 season. The NCAA granted him a sixth year of eligibility, and he's the projected starter at left guard for 2012. He saw limited action during spring practice but will be back to full strength by fall camp.
