The Cowboys have added yet another highly recruited player to the 2014 class. 6 foot 4 250 lb Defensive End Trey Carter out of Pinkston High School in Dallas has verbally committed to Oklahoma State. Carter, listed as the number 34 Strong Side Defensive End according to the Scout, becomes the 23rd commitment for Oklahoma State in a very talented class.

Numerous schools have expressed interest in Carter including Oklahoma, Mississippi State, and Miami. However, TCU appeared to be the front runner to land Carter until recently. Things seemed to shift in OSU's favor as of late with Trey, and perhaps a big factor in the recruiting process came on his official visit to Stillwater last weekend when he watched the Cowboys take down Baylor in front of a sold out Boone Pickens Stadium.

Here the scouting report from ESPN on Carter:

Can be tough against the run flashing the ability to hold his ground and set the edge when he keeps his pads down which he displays he can for the most part. Can be active with his hands in phone booth battle. Displays some tightness and can struggle to quickly change direction at times, but can redirect well enough to fall back into plays.

Comes across as an active and tough defender. Range is just adequate for size. Shows good strength to bring ball carriers down when he gets hands on but more an arm tackler at this stage

Carter becomes the twelfth defensive player and third DE committed in the 2014 class, joining Jordan Brailford out of Booker T. Washington in Tulsa,OK and Cole Walterscheid out of Muenster, TX.
