Four-star RB Cam’Ron Valdez Set to Visit Oklahoma State This Weekend

OSU is hosting a top target in 2021 this weekend.



Oklahoma State has yet to land a running back in the 2020 recruiting cycle — which will officially come to a close in two weeks. If that holds true, an emphasis will be placed on the position in 2021 as the team looks to do the impossible by replacing Chuba Hubbard.

Enter Cam’Ron Valdez. The four-star running back from Rockdale, Texas, is a 2021 prospect who has been on OSU’s radar for months, and he announced on Wednesday he’s set to make a trip to Stillwater this weekend.

Valdez, a 5-foot-9, 180 pound back, was offered by Oklahoma State’s staff back in November, part of a rise in the fall that included offers from Utah, Kansas, West Virginia, Georgia Tech, Missouri and others. His recruitment has gone cold of late, though. Purdue offered in November, Texas State in December — and nothing since.

It appears Valdez is working through his recruitment now, feeling out interest and getting to the visit stage of his process before a final decision. He’s visited several schools before — Texas Tech, Texas and Baylor among them — and OSU gets its crack Saturday.

OSU has Hubbard, Dezmon Jackson, LD Brown and Deondrick Glass returning to the roster in 2020, but beyond that it remains unclear who is in line to be the bell cow in 2021. Given that uncertainty, the pitch to Valdez — and other running back targets for OSU — is quite simple: Come succeed a Heisman contender and earn a spot toting the rock for a top-15 offense. In our exclusive PFB+ interview with him on Thursday morning, that was more or less the message he said OSU was pitching him.
OSU’s early efforts in the class suggest it intends to be aggressive this cycle, particularly at running back where seven prospects — one five-star, four four-stars, a three-star and an unranked player — have already garnered offers. Here’s a look at the updated offer list at RB for OSU in 2021.

• Camar Wheaton — ?????
• Donovan Edwards — ????
• LJ Johnson — ????
• Brandon Campbell — ????
• Cam’Ron Valdez — ????
• Tavierre Dunlap — ???
• Alton McCaskill — NR

And here are his highlights.
