    According to Insiders Big 12 Recruiting Analyst Josh Clark, we have offered Ada, OK OL Craig Roark.

    Roark is projected as one of the best center/guard prospects in the country.


    Coach's Comments: "Craig is just so wide that a lot of times in person he appears smaller than 6'3," said Head Coach Steve Dean. "Really, he is 6'3.5 and nearing 6'4 rapidly. He just such a thick butt and legs and is very lean at 290 pounds."

    Scouting Report: A good guard/center prospect that has great mobility and reaches the second level effectively.

    Currently has offers from SMU, Nebraska, Arizona, Baylor & Alabama along with ours. Other schools expressing interest include Missouri, Kansas State, Arizona State, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State & USC

    He is already a full-qualifier too.

    here is something interesting I found in one of his updates- he was offered by USC and it looks like Petey is up to his old tricks

    I guess we can expect the jet next :biggrin:

    a few other tidbits

    bench press: 365 pounds
    squat: 450 pound

    I think he looks a little like Steve Rehring.

    Carroll told me that I was his no.1 WR recruit. He said he'd move Davis to LT and Jarrett to punter to accommodate me.

    Roark is definitely excited to learn more about us now as he and his family have already discussed taking an unofficial visit to Columbus this summer.

    Bollman is very, very, very high on Roark judging from his comments on the newest Rivals update.

    Nebraska looks to be our main competition with Roark right now.

    That's pretty interesting. Just goes to show how little we all know in the grand scheme of things. We could use a good guard/center prospect to go along with Boone and Cordle at tackle.

    Rivals is reporting that LSU has now offered and Missouri has now surpassed Nebraska as his favorite. But as mentioned above he still plans on an unofficial to C-bus this summer. He hopes to have his list down to 5 by the end of the summer.

    Max on Roark

    Yeah. With the SR-71, Coach could spy on Petey to see where he's going and then beat him there!

    I thought our coach couldn't recruit out of state? Especially offensive lineman? :nerd:

    Per latest Rivals Update....

    When asked if he had a favorite, Roark said, “I’d probably say that Nebraska is still my favorite but I really liked Missouri as well when I went up there a couple of weekends ago.”

    Nebraska is putting the full-court press on Roark as they sent hom 15-20 hand-written letters last week alone. He was very impressed they showed that level interest in the middle of their Spring practice week.

    For some reason he's really enamored with Missouri calling them, "the total package." The Tigers are really trying to make Roark feel right home by having former Ada High and Missouri LB Barry Odom show him around campus.

    here some more info on the Nebraska "full court press" which will heat up this weekend- even Lemmonhead is helping out his buddy Callahan (nothing like remaining objective) :mad2:

    "One reason that I'm going to visit is because I get mail from them every day," Roark said. "Sometimes I get a pile of letters, and they're all from Nebraska - handwritten notes from all the coaches."

    Just wondering...has anyone ever heard this happening from the OSU staff? Sometimes I wonder if we are aggressive enough with these recruits.
