Oklahoma State QB Search for 2020 Focused on Two Recruits … For Now



Oklahoma State has been busy building out its 2020 recruiting class this past week, landing commitments from cornerback Jabbar Muhammad and offensive linemen Eli Russ. Up next on the to-do list for OSU is finding a QB to build around.

Let’s take a look at the two QB prospects — the only two — who are currently at the top of Oklahoma State’s radar.

Jack Miller of Scottsdale, Arizona, is the No. 1 pro-style QB in the 2020 class, so it’s no surprise OSU pounced on him with an early offer. At 6-foot-4, 210-pounds (as a sophomore!), he projects as one of the bluest of blue-chippers in 2020.

Miller’s head coach, Thomas Lewis, who also played in the NFL, believes Miller has a shot at being a generational talent.

“From day one, the first time I’d ever seen him throw, that was the best deep ball I’d ever seen in my life,” said Lewis of Miller. “It’s also about the intangibles. The first time I’ve seen this, there was a wheel route. He was on the opposite hash. The kid ran a wheel route. Boom. He got up the field. He threw the ball from the opposite hash to the wheel route with pace and complete accuracy. People can’t make that throw. He can make all the throws that 80 percent of quarterbacks can’t make.” [AZ Central]

Miller already has offers from Ohio State, LSU, Auburn and a slew of others.

No. 2 on the target list (and, likely, No. 1 in the likelihood to land category among current offers) is Lake Travis star Hudson Card, a dual-threat QB whose stock is just as red-hot as Miller’s.

Card already has offers from Alabama and Ohio State (both of which came at the end of April) as well as Texas, Baylor and several others. Card has been on OSU’s campus but being from Lake Travis — home of the fghting Baker Mayfields — doesn’t particularly bode well for OSU if OU eventually jumps in the fight for him.
