Never played football? No problem for Oklahoma State 

By Jeff Greer

Oklahoma State’s 18th commitment for the 2011 class has made national headlines.

He’s a big athlete at 6-4, 235 pounds. He runs a 4.47 40, benches 355 pounds and squats 500. Alex Elkins is a great signing for Oklahoma State with a lot of potential.

But there’s one catch: He never played high school football.

Elkins came to Blinn Junior College in Brenham, Texas, without ever playing football at his original high school in Georgia or at the school in Texas where he transferred for his senior year. He showed up at a one-day team camp at Blinn in 2009 and made quite the impression.

Now he’s headed to Oklahoma State.

“He struggled early as far as understanding the defense and schemes,” Blinn coach Brad Franchione told the Brenham Banner-Press. “But he learned the defense quick and makes a lot of good plays. He does a good job of getting to the ball.”

Guess it’s safe to say you can’t coach athleticism.
