10) Levy Adcock, OL, Oklahoma State
Out of the LonghornDigest.com Top 10, Levy Adcock is the only junior college transfer, and he's a player who was a late addition to the Cowboys' recruiting class to boot.
Adcock came to Oklahoma State as a three-to-play-three player after redshirting his first year at Northeast Oklahoma A&M Junior College, and he was definitely a player with some upside. How many 6-foot-6, 300-plus pound guys were named all-county in football, basketball and baseball in high school? But that's exactly what Adcock was able to accomplish, while being named all-district and all-conference in all three sports as well.
He also had some versatility, playing right guard for the Norsemen while occasionally sliding over to tackle. It's at the latter position that he had success at Oklahoma State, after joining the program as a late summer pickup.
After a nondescript sophomore year that saw him play mostly special teams and as a fourth tight end, Adcock won the starting right tackle job with a strong August heading into his junior year.
And that's only where the story started. By the end of the year, he was a first-team All-Big 12 selection by both the coaches and the Associated Press, earning a unanimous selection to the latter team. He didn't allow a sack all season and graded out at 100 percent against Texas. In the middle of the Oklahoma game, Adcock switched to left tackle and helped to keep the Sooners sackless on the day.
He was named Oklahoma State's offensive lineman of the week five times, was among the candidates for Big 12 offensive lineman of the year and helped to power one of the country's most explosive, and balanced, offenses.
Now, what can Adcock do as an encore? One thing's for sure: the 322-pound senior has it in himself to surprise people.
