The Reload: OSU Offers JUCO Tight End, Loses Recruiting Battle to Houston



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.

Houston nabs OSU target

The University of Houston has pulled in a commitment from Julon Williams, a dual-threat quarterback/athlete from Judson High School.

The three-star prospect from Converse, Texas, was long projected to be an OSU lean before going with the Cougars over offers from K-State, TCU and Virginia.

OSU likely missed on Williams because of his preference on position, as OSU is more than happy with its signal-caller position in the class with Spencer Sanders in the fold. Had Williams committed to the Cowboys, he would have likely been an athlete—at Houston, he’ll likely continue his career as a quarterback.

OSU offers JUCO tight end

Oklahoma State has extended an offer to NEO tight end Jake Ross, a 6-foot-7 prospect, he reported this weekend.

The offer was extended just a day after tight ends coach Jason McEndoo made a visit to see him in person for a game, a source told Pistols Firing. It also happened to come on his birthday.

In addition to his OSU offer, the big-bodied tight end also has offers from Kansas, Coastal Carolina, and UCF.

Although Ross has only been playing football for three years, he’s a talented prospect with high upside and incredible size. I’m told Ross, the former basketball star, is expected to be a December graduate and from an eligibility standpoint has three years to play two. So adding him to the mix and getting him into Rob Glass’s system could be a boon for the program looking to develop its talent at the position.

Mike Boynton offers two big men

Who says OSU has abandoned the Lone Star state in hoops recruiting? OSU extended one of two scholarship offers this week to Houston native Allen Udemadu, a 6-foot-9 power forward from Humble, Texas.

OSU is the Class of 2020 big man’s sixth scholarship offer to go with Maryland, Stephen F. Austin, ETSU, Western Kentucky and DePaul.

Also, his nickname is Baby Olajuwon, which is totally amazing.

The second offer this week went out to 2019 big man Isaiah Stewart, a Rochester, New York prospect with dozens of offers nationally. In fact, OSU is offer No. 28, adding to his list that includes Notre Dame, Maryland, Georgetown, Xavier, Indiana, Florida and other premier programs.

Stewart, now a household name in recruiting circles, opted this summer to leave Rochester to play at high school powerhouse La Lumiere (La Porte, Ind.). Although he missed much of his sophomore season due to a back injury, Stewart is still a top-30 player nationally in his class and the No. 9 player at his position.
