OSU is hopping in the game late with Brown, which leads me to ask two questions: Do they know their fate with Israel Antwine, the newly decommitted OKC area prospect? And are they still in it with Tayland Humphrey, the top JUCO d-tackle? My guess is that both questions don’t have answers. But if I were betting, I’d say OSU has a better shot at landing the latter than the former.Brown is a pipe-dreamer, in my opinion. But his evaluation from Scout suggests he’s a cant-miss player worth taking a shot on.With outstanding frame potential for the interior defensive line in multiple schemes, Bobby Brown has emerged as one of the top D-line prospects in the state of Texas for the 2018 class. Brown possesses good height and rare length, even for a defensive end, though he projects best to the interior as a tackle, most likely in a four-man front. That said, Brown has the athleticism to fit multiple roles in varying schemes, giving him coveted scheme- and position-versatility. Brown is a high-motor prospect who comes from a good program (Arlington Lamar) that competes in Texas high school football’s largest classification. He shows the ability to maintain his balance and leverage mid-contact, which is not often the case with young prospects who possess his height and length. Once he gets more consistent with his get-off at the snap, Brown will be a dangerous pass-rusher, especially considering his wingspan. Brown is raw right now, but possesses uncommon physical characteristics that suggest he’s primed to emerge as one of the top defensive line prospects in the state – and potentially the nation – for the 2018 recruiting cycle. — Gabe BrooksPrediction: Alabama2020 cornerback Korie Black offeredWaco area prospect Korie Black reported his second Division-I offer after mini-camp Saturday from OSU.

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.Four-star 2018 tackle sets commitment dateTop-ranked offensive tackle prospect Darrell Simpson has set his commitment date for August 12, he announced this week on Twitter.Simpson is a four-star, top-200 talent from Northwest High School in Justin, Texas, widely viewed as a top-10 prospect at his position in the region. He has been on OSU’s radar for years now and recently included OSU in his group of final 8 schools.I predicted this spring (a bold prediction, admittedly) that OSU would be his landing spot. But I don’t see the Cowboys winning this battle. The 6-7 talent is a heavy OU lean by most prognosticators, and I think that’s where he ultimately winds up. But keep an eye on any late developments that could swing his recruitment in the final days before he pledges.Oklahoma State has commitments at offensive line from Bryce Bray, Hunter Anthony, Hunter Woodard, Tyrese Williams and Jacob Farrell, but Simpson would be a must-take under any circumstance. Despite Josh Henson’s accomplishments in filling out a star-studded class to this point, landing Simpson would be the crown jewel of not only his group, but also of the 2018 class.Prediction: OklahomaFour-star 2018 d-lineman offeredFour-star defensive lineman Bobby Brown was one of two prospects to pick up an offer over the weekend at OSU’s final mini-camp of the summer.Brown is an Arlington Lamar prospect with 20 scholarship opportunities and counting, rated as the No. 14 defensive tackle prospect in the nation by 247Sports.last_img read more

Several former Cowboys were drafted or signed as undrafted free agents. Here’s a look at who stuck and who was let go.Brandon WeedenWeeden, who will turn 34 next month, is out at Houston. Probably not a huge surprise given that the Texans took Clemson’s Deshaun Watson with the 12th-overall pick in this year’s NFL Draft.With two QBs they believe in, the #Texans have released QB Brandon Weeden, source said. They’ll keep just two.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) September 2, 2017AdChoices广告Chris CarsonChris Carson was a surprise star for the Seattle Seahawks who already had four running backs on the roster. But Carson’s highlight-worthy plays and praise from new head coach Pete Carroll earned him a place on the 53-man roster. Fellow running backs Alex Collins and Mike Davis were cut to make room for the former Poke.Vincent TaylorThe Miami Dolphins took Taylor in the sixth round of this year’s Draft and he’s apparently done nothing but impress. As was expected, he was not cut and will make Miami’s roster.Ashton LampkinAshton Lampkin impressed during the preseason in his role in the Kansas City’s secondary, and the Chiefs liked Lampkin enough that even after he suffered a season-ending knee injury, they’ve decided to do him around on IR.Jordan SternsKansas City waived Jordan Sterns earlier in camp after the former Cowboy safety missed several practices due to illness.Lenzy PipkinsAccording to reports, Pipkins didn’t hear from the team before the cut deadline — so the assumption is that he made the team.Pipkins impressed in the preseason, being named to the Week 1 preseason team of the week by Pro Football Focus. ?center_img Lenzy PipkinsGreen Bay Packers?
