The Reload: Two Oklahoma Standouts Receive Scholarship Offers



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

2019 linebacker Marcel Brooks offered

Listed at safety, Oklahoma State made its second offer at what would likely be a collegiate outside linebacker in 2019 to Marcel Brooks. The evaluation by OSU must have been good, too, as LSU, Penn State, TCU and Oklahoma have all offered since.

Brooks can play a number of positions and schools are looking at him at safety or outside linebacker. The Marcus (Flower Mound,  Texas) product also holds a big offer from Texas A&M, but the Sooners are considered by 247Sports as the co-favorite in his recruitment, which is apparently just taking off for the No. 77 overall prospect in the 2019 class. He’s got 11 offers in May alone.

Brooks is the second outside linebacker offer for the Cowboys in 2019, joining NaNa Osafo-Mensah, who was offered earlier this month. Osafo-Mensah could play as a defensive end at the next level.

2018 in-state safety Jason Taylor offered

Oklahoma State put its hat in the ring for Carl Albert standout safety Jason Taylor this week, a 6-foot-1 prospect from the Oklahoma City area. Taylor has offers from North Texas, Arkansas State, SMU, Ohio, Louisiana-Monroe, Wyoming, Air Force and Tulsa.

Carl Albert is a 5A school, but Taylor is still under-the-radar nationally. He’s a do-it-all star who enjoyed a big junior season playing receiver and safety last season, and likely has more offers on the way this summer.

2019 in-state defensive end Collin Clay offered

Oklahoma has not offered, but is somehow already favored by 247Sports in the crystal ball for 2019 defensive end Collin Clay. The Cowboys joined Iowa State, Arkansas State and SMU with his fourth offer on Tuesday. The 2019 pass rusher visited Oklahoma State unofficially for the spring game.

Putnam City is now somehow churning out elite Division I pass rushers, and Clay is the latest. In the 2018 cycle, it was four-star defensive end Ron Tatum, who garnered an OSU offer but later committed to Texas. Tatum held a number of offers including OU and Alabama, and Clay has the potential to grow into a national recruit like his elder counterpart.
