2019 Big Board: OSU’s Top Targets at Wide Receiver



The big board series is almost finished for 2019. By the end, OSU may have already filled out its class — so we’re going to get through the majority of the remaining targets by position over the next week.

Here’s a look back at the other series we’ve completed thus far. Today, we’re looking at the wide receiver position.

QB | RB | CB | OL | DE | DT | LB

Four-star in-state star Demariyon Houston is at the top of OSU’s radar for a number of reasons. First, he’s an OKC native. And second, he’s an OKC native who happens to be a blue-chipper.

Alabama, Auburn, Oregon and a slew of others have offered, but OSU’s been in the mix for a long while and he’s shown a strong interest in OSU.

Bentonville native Jadon Jackson is another speedster built in the same mold of Houston who is also at the top of OSU’s radar. The Arkansas native has 13 offers, Arkansas and Ole Miss among them, but it’ll be hard to pry him from his home state.

Oklahoma State already missed on one Shenault brother in Laviska, who signed with Colorado in 2017 over OSU. But that isn’t preventing the staff from recruiting his younger brother, La’Vontae, a 6-foot receiver from DeSoto.

All signs point to him likely following his brother up to Colorado, but that doesn’t seem like a done deal. And OSU’s connection with DeSoto is always a factor on the recruiting trail.

Garrett Wilson out of Lake Travis was once thought to be strongly considering Oklahoma State before making his pick of Ohio State last month. Still, his recruitment isn’t technically over until the ink dries.

One thing to keep in mind with Wilson, who is admittedly a long-shot target, is where QB Grant Gunnell lands. If Gunnell picks Ohio State, as expected, Wilson will almost certainly stay faithful to the Buckeyes. But if he picks elsewhere like, say, Oklahoma State, Wilson may get a wandering eye … and Stillwater’s a lot closer to home than Columbus.
