The Reload: Tight End Targets Emerging, Texas Schools Raiding 2017 Class

Published

The Reload is PFB’s recruiting recap, catching you up to speed on the latest news and rumors surrounding Oklahoma State recruiting, with an ear to the ground for what to expect in the future.


Tight end recruiting heating up

Jordan Frazier is leaving the program, and Zac Veatch and Blake Jarwin are playing their last games against Colorado. That leaves several spots open — one of which is filled by Tyler Henderson.

Here’s the latest action:

  • Jenks tight end Reese Leitao de-committed from Nebraska on Sunday. He was one of OSU’s top targets before he committed elsewhere — and a chance for him to play closer to home could be enticing.
  • OSU offered JUCO tight end Sione Finefeuiaki, a prospect from College of San Mateo in California. Could be a game-changing offer with OSU looking for an experienced player — and Finefeuiaki fitting that mold.

Four-star receiver names OSU in top schools, then gets offer

This is one way to get the attention from a school. Four-star receiver Jatavious Harris of Georgia named OSU in his top schools earlier this week — then over the weekend he announced he had an offer from OSU.

Harris is also considering LSU, Notre Dame, Georgia, and a slew of other SEC and ACC schools.

Texas schools raiding OSU

If you were mad about OSU losing offensive lineman Dan Moore to Texas A&M, hang on to your britches. It could get worse.

Two prospects to watch:

  1. Thabo Mwaniki. Mwaniki has racked up an insane amount of offers recently, with TCU, Baylor, and UCLA joining the fold. He is an athlete committed to OSU to play defensive back, but schools aren’t letting up in their pursuit.
  2. Derek Kerstetter. Oklahoma State has held him under wraps this season, but the secret is out: Kerstetter is one of the top offensive linemen in Texas. He’s an Army All-American — and Texas is his latest offer. He’s from San Antonio, and has a connection with OSU receiver Austin Hays. But … hanging on to him until signing day may be difficult.
