OSU recruiting notebook: Broken Arrow's Zac Veatch a versatile athlete

Barnett failed to qualify academically for Arkansas, so he went to the Corsicana, Texas, junior college.

Barnett told Rivals.com that his relationship with defensive coordinator Bill Young played a role in his decision.

“I've felt that Coach Young is a good man and has always been from all the way to my senior year when I was committed to them, so we've always had a good relationship,” Barnett told the website.

One thing that might worry Cowboy fans, though, is that Barnett also told Rivals that he might take a few more official visits to other places, although he remains “100 percent” committed to OSU.


Kendall Sanders, a four-star athlete who committed to OSU in February, rushed for 200 yards as his Athens (Texas) team improved to 5-2 with a 42-21 win at Bullard on Friday.

Sanders ran for touchdowns of 99 and 10 yards in the win.

With the two touchdowns, Sanders now has 20 on the season. He needs just four more to tie his own school record, which he set last season.
