Oklahoma State had a visitor on hand this weekend to watch the 40-23 victory over Missouri State, 6-8 295 lb. offensive tackle Deya Mhiesen. Originally from Philadelphia, PA and currently on the roster for Los Angeles Pierce Community College, Mhiesen was considering several FBS schools. Early on Sunday, Coach Gundy broke some great news.

LA Pierce doesn't begin their season until next Saturday, allowing Pierce to make recruiting visits over the last few weekends. Last week, Mhiesen attended the Baylor game, and it was believed that Baylor and Oklahoma State were the two biggest competitors in winning over Deya for 2015.
Listed as the #10 Junior College offensive tackle, and 46th overall on the 2015 247Sports Junior College Rankings, Mhiesen held offers from Oklahoma State, Baylor, Arizona State, Oklahoma, USC, California, Tennessee, UCF, and Temple among others. Check out his highlights below.
