Oklahoma State’s premium offense has upped the ante on the level of prospects the Cowboys can attract.
And the attraction has been particularly appealing with wide receivers. So it is again, with Louisiana prep star Cameron Sims soon to make his college choice and listing OSU among his top five. Sims, a 6-fo0t-4 and 210-pound wideout, told Scout.com that he’ll make his choice known on Saturday, with the Cowboys in play along with an eclectic group of other schools: Alabama, Southern Miss, Ole Miss and Southern.
Sims, who plays at Ouachita Parish High School, is a four-star, Top 100 overall prospect and the No. 8 receiver, according to Scout.
“All five schools are up there. I know a couple are smaller than the others, but Southern Miss offered me very early and a lot of my family went to Southern. I have been going to Southern games almost every month since I was six or seven years old.
“Oklahoma State is a great school and they get the ball to their top playmakers. I really like Ole Miss a lot. Their coaches are great and it is just nice there. Alabama is always good and I know a few of their players, so it would be nice to play there.
“I could see myself at any of these schools. I like all five a lot.”
The Cowboys currently have three Texas prep wide receivers committed for 2014: four-star Keenen Brown of Houston Taylor, three-star Chris Lacy of DeSoto and three-star James Washington of Stamford.
OSU is also on the list of the nation’s No. 1-ranked wideout, Malachi Dupre of John Curtis Christian in River Ridge, La.
