Jordan Stevenson, a former Wisconsin commit from the Dallas area, has been denied admissions making him free to choose a new school. He is NCAA qualified according to reports. Stevenson is the No. 17 ranked running back in the nation and No. 30 prospect from the state of Texas according to 247Sports.com, a state Mike Gundy considers in-state recruiting.
Oklahoma State had shown interest in Stevenson late in the process before he committed to Wisconsin after decommitting from Texas, and is reportedly now interested again after finding out he is available. Stevenson, a 5-foot-8-inch, 185 pound back, would present potentially a longer-term answer for the Cowboys at tailback as incumbent Rennie Childs and transfer Chris Carson each have only two years of eligibility left. It will be worth watching to see if OSU jumps back into the race for him, as he has stated he would like to commit as early as this weekend.
In his final two seasons in high school Stevenson compiled 4,550 yards and 45 touch downs, recording over 2,000 yards each year. Landing Stevenson and the aforementioned Carson would be a great consolation for OSU after top 5 ranked RB Ronald Jones decomitted and wound up at USC.
