Quarterback prospect nearing decision
A week from now, Oklahoma State could know whether it has a quarterback commitment for the 2009 recruiting class.
San Antonio prospect Drew Allen
is expected to announce his intentions early next week, according to Alamo Heights High School head coach Don Byrd
"Monday is our first day of practice, and he wants to get it done around that time,” Byrd said.
Allen recently told RebelSports.com that he currently favors Mississippi, with Oklahoma State second on his list of five potential schools. Oklahoma, which according to Byrd, made a scholarship offer late last week, is third, ahead of Purdue and Vanderbilt.
Interestingly, Ole Miss already has a commitment from quarterback Clayton Moore
, who also received an offer from Oklahoma State.
Allen, 6-foot-5, 200 pounds, threw for nearly 2,600 yards and 25 touchdowns as a junior, leading Alamo Heights to a 10-2 record in a one-back, spread offense.
Academics won't be an issue for Allen either. Byrd said his QB has been accepted to Harvard.
•Practice time adjusted:
OSU announced that today's morning practice will begin at 8 a.m., rather than the originally scheduled 9:30. The afternoon session is still slated for 5 p.m. Today's practices are the last two practices open to fans.
