RECRUITING UPDATE: Tyreek Hill signs with Oklahoma State

New, 14 comments

Juco transfers can sign early, and OSU officially landed one of their high profile recruits.

This tweet was a bit ambiguous, and I 'm sure had some OSU folks a little nervous for a moment...

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p>It&#39;s official lol just signed</p>&mdash; Tyreek Hill (@ImFasterThanYa) <a href="https://twitter.com/ImFasterThanYa/statuses/413317816658309120">December 18, 2013</a></blockquote>

But the following tweet cleared that up quickly...

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p>Future Oklahoma State Cowboy 💥🔫</p>&mdash; Tyreek Hill (@ImFasterThanYa) <a href="https://twitter.com/ImFasterThanYa/statuses/413326215466856448">December 18, 2013</a></blockquote>

As our own Cory Treece announced, there were 4 juco transfers OSU expected LOI's from today...

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p>OSU will hopefully get 4 LOIs today from Hill, Antoine, Averette, and Ledbetter <a href="https://twitter.com/search?q=%23okstate&amp;src=hash">#okstate</a></p>&mdash; Cory Treece (@CDTreece_CRFF) <a href="https://twitter.com/CDTreece_CRFF/statuses/413324814217015296">December 18, 2013</a></blockquote>

Not long thereafter, another future Cowboy made it official...

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p>Devante Averette has signed! <a href="https://twitter.com/search?q=%23okstate&amp;src=hash">#okstate</a></p>&mdash; Cory Treece (@CDTreece_CRFF) <a href="https://twitter.com/CDTreece_CRFF/statuses/413331440474927104">December 18, 2013</a></blockquote>

Cowboys Ride For Free caught up with Devante and had him touch on a few subjects, ranging from how it feels to officially be a Cowboy,where Mike Gundy and staff will have him line up next season, to when he will touch foot in Stillwater:

"It feels great. Working so hard to get to this point is truly a blessing. The staff have told me that they want me to be the weak side backer. I will be in Stillwater by January 12th. The message from me to the fans is that my film doesn't lie. What you see is what you get. I'm an aggressive player that makes my defense better all around,which makes us a better unit."

Here's a pic of Averette signing...
