Help, @CTeamPoke and other guys. Since there aren’t any camps this year and Kellyville didn’t do spectacular last fall, how should my grandson go about contacting coaches. I told him to write an email introducing himself and to send a link to his highlight video to various coaches at different universities and colleges. NEO only has email addresses listed for Zach Allen and the OC and DC, no position coaches. OSU has an email for a recruiting coordinator so I assume that person distributes information to the appropriate position coach. I have compiled a list of email addresses for coaches at UCO, NSU, NEO, U of Tulsa, KU and OSU. What other schools might be a good choice to contact? Should he mail an actual letter or just stick with email?

I might as well post his highlight video here incase any coaches see this page. As a sophomore and in the summer after his sophomore year he attended some camps. Some of his measurables from those camps were 116 inch broad jump, 35+ inch vertical and 4.5-4.6 40 time. He plays cornerback, receiver, punt and kickoff return specialist.

If he appears to become a D1 prospect he will be found. Osu coaches receive 1000s of videos and don’t even watch them, they have paid personnel who weed through them. Most positions have parameters like no OL under 6’4” or no DBs who don’t run a 4.4 etc.
Being near Tulsa he will get noticed if he is a prospect. Tulsa has the Tulsa World plus all the OKPreps guys who go to team camps and do prospect write ups. They find guys in 8-man football schools. He needs to take care of the things he can take care of like grades, weight room, nutrition and speed work.
The NCAA will have to evaluate what the landscape looks like. Which will trickle down to the OSSAA. One day it looks like our team will be back up there in a couple wks, the next day it looks like no season. The NCAA will make plans regarding more camps, more visits, etc. The super team camps with 20+ college coaches are good to go to. Usually like $40ish and can compete against similar or elite prospects, plus you get more “official” measurements.
Hope this helps & best of luck to the young man! He put a lot of big plays on film!

I imagine coaches are watching more videos this year since they can’t be on the recruiting trail and recruits can’t come to campus.

anyone think we have a legitimate chance? I believe he’s only visited LSU Bama and us. He RTs a lot of our stuff and hasn’t tweeted much about the other two. Man I sure hope Dickey can close this one....

Seems like he’s trending towards Auburn, a school he hasn’t visited but his HS QB is committed there. This pretty much sums up OSU football, always the bridesmaid, often coming up short.

In my opinion we don’t have the recruiters to go against the big dogs. We settle and have a “if they don’t wanna come here let them go elsewhere” rather than fight. Similar product we put on the field. We’ve seen a decade plus of “if we can get over this hump we could be a serious top 10 program”. Then low and behold we drop the ball again and again to a team we are favored against.

Seriously though who on our staff besides Dunn has put 1/2/3rd round guys in the NFL repeatedly? Most elite kids want to go to elite SEC programs they compete for national championships. Our indoor is filled with Alamo, Cotton, Independence and Camping World Bowl banners vs Arizona, Missouri, Colorado & VaTech

Love how much better we're recruiting lately. Going head to head with premier programs while continuing to hire coaches that excel in developing talent.

A real shame that Jaeden is trending away from us.

I’m still pretty hopeful though, this weird period is going to cause a ton of decommits. If we win at the level this roster is capable of, I think we could be in a position to target some committed guys as the season goes along. Jaeden seems to really like us so that’s 1, the other I’d have my eye on is Quaydarius Davis, who’s already shown he’s prone to flipping, seemed to really like OSU, and is committed to one of the shakiest coaching positions in the country. Hoping to see some ruthlessness from Gundy and not give up on the pursuits.
