Lampkin talks at Shrine Bowl

Good stuff here from Ashton Lampkin on his past and present.

It was never part of my plan to come out early. I wanted to be one of the first people in my family to graduate college and high school, so that was one of the things I was going to do, regardless, even if I was a top ten pick coming out as a junior, I was going to go back to school and get my degree. It was something that was important to me then and it also benefits me in the same effect. [Big Cat Country]

Good for him. I hope he makes it on a NFL roster in 2017.

What is an official visit like?

Cool post here by Robert Allen that shows what it’s like for a player to take an official visit to Oklahoma State in 2017. Here’s one highlight:

A highlight for you, John, will be the locker room and Matt “Chief” Davis showing you all the gear Cowboys players get and the uniforms you will wear. If you believe you have to look good to play good, then this is your favorite presentation. Another highlight for moms is the presentation in the training room to see how your son will be taken care of on a daily basis and the attention and facilities available if John gets hurt making so many tackles.

I think I’d just hand out there.

On recruiting rules reform

Even players want their to be a December signing period. Here’s future Poke Tylan Wallace.

“Seeing what I saw on the field this season with OSU made my commitment even stronger, and I would have been really excited to sign in December if I could have,” said Wallace, the No. 11 receiver in the country. “It also gives you just a little bit of a window if you did have any second thoughts to maybe look around at another school or two. It’s not too soon and it’s not too late.” [ESPN]

Mike Gundy talks about this a lot, and he wants a signing period even earlier than that. It’s smart of Wallace to suggest December though. Information = power, and you have more information in December than you would in, say, July.

OSU gets another great WR

Fun read here on one of OSU’s WR recruits Shamond Greenwood.

He says OSU is the appropriate fit for him, as Lakeview ran a similar offense as the Cowboys. Greenwood also says he wants to learn all he can from senior wide receiver James Washington and is excited to catch passes from Mason Rudolph. Expectations will be high for Greenwood, but Miller has no reservations that the receiver has the ability to meet them. “He’s the best player I’ve coached in 20 years as a high school coach,” Miller said. “He can make every play.” [Tulsa World]

And OSU gets to redshirt him and prep him for the future.

Chris Beard praises Pokes

This is good.

“I think a lot of the times, as a coach, it’s easy to step up here and talk about everything we did wrong and all that,” Texas Tech coach Chris Beard said. “But you got to give credit to a good team, a good coach that came in focused. “They beat us in every facet of the game today. We have a long ways to go, but hats off to Oklahoma State.” [AP]

I didn’t catch it all, but the part I did showed that OSU was just flat out better than the Red Raiders.
