Earlier this month, the Oklahoma State staff made a pointed effort to fire off offers at QB for 2019. With no commitments imminent, Wisconsin pledge Graham Mertz, along with Louisiana standout Lance LeGendre have been targeted in an effort to drum up interest to fill its spot for 2019.

The same can now be said for receivers in 2019. Kasey Dunn has done his homework and is shooting offers out the mail like UPS, with three new offers in 2019 at the position this week. Let’s break ’em down.

Kennedy Lewis, sleeper.

Oklahoma State is the first Power Five to hop aboard the 6-3 prospect from Melissa, Texas, joining Louisiana-Monroe as his only other offer. As a junior last season, Lewis compiled 48 receptions for 1,099 yards and 11 touchdowns, and could be a nice, big target in the red zone at the next level as he’s been in high school.

As has been the case time and again in recent cycles, plucking highly-routed players from Arkansas and the strong pull of the in-state Razorbacks. But regardless of Arkansas’ offer to three-star slot receiver Jadon Jackson, the Pokes offered this week.

Jackson is the No. 4 player in the state and the No. 58 receiver in the 2019 class out of Bentonville West.

Jameson Williams out of Saint Louis, Missouri, is the third WR offer this week and the highest rated. The No. 241 player in 2019, Williams has 30 (!!) offers from the likes of Ohio State, Michigan State, TCU, Bama and others.

Might be a longshot, at best.

A rising 2020 talent from New Caney, Texas, Dwight McGlothern was offered this week as a defensive back. Despite being just a sophomore, McGlothern has been bombarded with offers from major programs — 13 in all — and already named a leader.

“I’ve got LSU at the top of all them,” McGlothern told SEC Country last summer. “Before I got [offers from] any school, I got LSU. It’s my dream school. I was thinking about committing, but I am not going to commit right now. But that’s my No. 1 school.”

Overcoming his favorite will be difficult for OSU in 2020, and even if they do, they’ll be battling with in-state schools in the Lone Star State that have long pursued him.
