OSU Hosts Bevy of High-Level Prospects During Camp Week

It was a big week on OSU’s campus as prospects from all sorts of age groups came into town for camps.

OSU held a mini camp Sunday, a passing camp Monday and a line camp Tuesday. Then the last half of this week is big for official visits with a healthy chunk of OSU’s 2022 commits coming to Stillwater.

Given the delights of social media, a lot of prospects in town for camps made their presences known. Here are some of the guys who OSU’s staff got a close-up look at this week.

# = OSU commit, * = OSU offer

2022

Alijah “A.J.” Brown, DT, Jenks (OK): Listed at 6-foot-1, 295 pounds, Brown has offers from Dartmouth and Eastern Michigan.

#Jordan Crook, LB, Duncanville (TX): Crook committed to OSU on March 9, and he is set to have his official visit this week. He is the No. 543 player in the class, making him the Cowboys’ top defensive commit in the cycle thus far.

#Mason Gilkey, WR, Pawhuska (OK): Gilkey got an OSU offer Feb. 10 and committed the same day. He is also set to visit this weekend after attending the passing camp. A 6-foot-4, 185-pound pass-catcher, Gilkey is the No. 564 player in the class. He won state championships in the 400m and 200m this year, as well.

*Jaleel Johnson, DE, Oklahoma City: An apparent standout of the lineman camp Tuesday, Johnson was offered shortly thereafter. He is a 6-4, 235-pound defensive lineman who is unranked, but he already had offers from Baylor, Kansas State, Texas Tech, Iowa State, Memphis, SMU, North Texas, Tulane and others.

Jocelyn Malaska, CB, Bethany (OK): Malaska has seven offers from Kansas, Tulsa, Utah State, UTSA, Eastern Michigan, South Dakota State and Abilene Christian. He is the No. 802 prospect in the 2022 class and the No. 13 player from Oklahoma. With corner Avyonne Jones decommitting last month, Malaska could be in line to fill that vacated spot.

Carson May, QB, Jones (OK): May is the No. 17 prospect from Oklahoma in his class. He holds offers from Western Michigan and Old Dominion and has been getting looks from a handful of Power Five programs.

Miller McCrumby, WR, Mount Pleasant (TX): An elite name, McCrumby has an enticing big-bodied pass-catcher at 6 foot 4, 205 pounds. He is the No. 457 player in the 2022 rankings, but his offers don’t necessarily reflect that. His only Power Five Offer is Kansas, but he has offers from Colorado State, Houston Baptist, Lamar, Louisiana and New Mexico.

#Garret Rangel, QB, Frisco (TX): Rangel, a 6-2, 170-pound QB from Frisco-Lone Star, committed to OSU in February, picking the Pokes over offers from Northwestern, Houston, Virginia Tech, Utah, Vanderbilt and others.

Robert Spears-Jennings, WR, Broken Arrow (OK): Spears-Jennings already has Power Five offers from Ole Miss, Texas Tech, Boston College, Colorado, Michigan State, Kansas State, Kansas and Virginia, but OSU hasn’t jumped in quite yet.

Zion Steptoe, WR, Frisco (TX): Steptoe is a three-star recruit who plays his high school ball at Frisco-Memorial. He is the No. 1,070 player in the 2022 class and has offers from Purdue, Utah, Vanderbilt, Pitt, Kansas, Kentucky, Hawaii and others.

Jordyn Tyson, WR, Frisco (TX): Another Frisco standout, this one playing his high school ball at Independence, Tyson is unranked in the 2022 class. However, he does have offers from Tulsa, Colorado State, New Mexico, Texas State and Campbell.

Jacob Waller, OL, Arlington (TX): A 6-foot-5, 280-pound O-lineman, Waller already has a good chunk of offers, but he hasn’t quite broken into Power Five space yet. SMU, North Texas, Tulsa, Louisiana, Wyoming and others have offered. He is a three-star prospect, per 247Sports.

2023

Cole Adams, WR, Owasso (OK): An in-state prospect who is starting to catch some attention, Adams has offers from Iowa State, Tulsa and New Mexico. He is listed at 5-10, 180 pounds.

*Kam Franklin, S, Oak Grove (LA): OSU offered Franklin, a 6-3, 185-pound safety, at the beginning of May, and he promptly made it out to Stillwater.

Daniel Obinna, DT, Georgetown (TX): Obinna doesn’t have any DI offers to this point, but he has found his way onto the Cowboy staff’s radar. He is listed at 5-11, 279 pounds and still has junior and senior high school seasons upcoming.

*Morgan Pearson, WR, Ardmore (OK): Pearson is a highly sought-after prospect in the 2023 cycle and not just in football.
