Offensive Lineman Flips Commitment To OSU

It appears the Cowboys have added another offensive lineman to the 2016 Class

Tyler Brown from Lexington, Oklahoma , standing at 6-6 and weighing 315 pounds, has chosen Oklahoma State over TCU. Brown had been committed to the horned frogs since May, but ultimately felt that OSU would be a better fit. Lexington Coach Jeff Carr explained the reason behind the commitment to The Daily Oklahoman's Jacob Unruh.

"Honestly, I think he felt like a bunch of his friends are going there, it's an hour-and-a-half versus three-and-a-half hours away and I think it's more of a small-town atmosphere, Hall said. "He felt like it was better for him."

Brown is a three-star offensive guard, and is ranked 5th on the Daily Oklahoman's Super 30. Tyler held offers from TCU, SMU, Arizona State, Houston, Illinois, Memphis, and Tulsa among others. ESPN has this to say about his overall ability.

Brown is an interesting prospect. Still raw in many ways, but possesses some very good natural tools and brings some very promising upside. We feel his best fit will be inside at OG where his strengths can be better maximized. He will need at least a red-shirt to continue to develop and likely adjust to a little steeper jump in competition, but in some time could be a good, if not potentially excellent college OG. Prospect to keep an eye on in the recruiting process and little down the road in college.

With the running game struggling this season, one would think Tyler Brown will get an excellent opportunity to see immediate playing time next season for the Cowboys.

2016 Wide Receiver Re-commits

Oklahoma State has regained the commitment of 2016 four-star Wide Reiciever Tyrell Alexander from Lancaster, Texas.

Alexander decommited to Oklahoma State back in July, but after taking several visits to Stillwater (including last Saturday to see OSU's win over TCU). Tyrell currently holds offers from Baylor, TCU, West Virginia, Texas Tech, Arkansas, Houston and Tulsa.

Listed at 6-2 and 180 pounds, Alexander appears to be another big, athletic receiver that OSU has been able to recruit to Stillwater lately. The ESPN scouting report on Tyrell makes it easy to get excited about what he can contribute.

Makes a ton of plays with the ball in his hands. Can pull a rabbit out of a hat and make multiple defenders miss in the open field in a short area of space. Is shifty and will jump cut with terrific lateral agility. Has all the makings of an explosive pass catcher with upside as a route runner. he has the ability to shift gears in the open field and create big plays with his legs.

No stats have been posted for Alexander in 2015, but he finished the 2014 season with 1,866 total yards and 17 touchdowns at quarterback. Check out the Hudl highlights from his Junior season.
