Texas Tech WR, OKC native Cameron Batson ‘always wanted payback’ against Oklahoma State

Texas Tech receiver Cameron Batson is 0-3 against Oklahoma State. He’d love to change that Saturday.

Despite being an in-state recruit at Millwood in Oklahoma City, Batson never got an offer from the Cowboys. He’s using that for motivation in Saturday’s game in Lubbock, Texas, he told The Oklahoman’s Scott Wright.

“OSU would’ve been a place I considered,” Batson said. “I always rooted for the home teams with OU and OSU. But neither of those guys offered, so I always wanted payback.”

Before his senior year at Millwood, Batson went to an Oklahoma State camp and spoke with receivers coach Kasey Dunn, but an offer never came. Instead, Batson headed south to Texas Tech. At 5-foot-9, he’s found success in the slot for the Red Raiders, with the fourth-most receptions per game in the Big 12.

The Cowboys’ 2014 recruiting class was stacked at receiver, including preseason All-American James Washington. But Batson, who’s already earned an accounting degree, has landed right at home in Lubbock.

“I made the best decision of my life coming to Texas Tech,” he said.
