Recruiting Round Up - Offensive Update

Here's a list of every high school player who has committed today to join Mike Gundy and his Cowboys for the next four years.

@itsmebige

Quarterback

Nyc Burns (Berryhill HS) 6'5'' 185 pounds
Three-star recruit

209/326 2,860 yards 35 TDs 9 INT

118 RATT 706 yards 11 TDs

Burns, a preferred walk-on, only began his career as a high school starter this past season as a senior. However, he preformed phenomenally. Although he will be a walk-on at Oklahoma State come fall, Burns is getting offers from multiple other schools. SFA, UTSA, Boise State and others have all contacted while others like New Mexico State and Northern Colrado. Despite all these offers, Burns has said he is uninterested in considering other schools because OSU has everything he wants except the scholarship while others have the scholarship but not everything he wants.

Coleman Key (Colorado State) 6'4'' 220 Pounds

Transfer

21/44 251 yards 3 TDs 3 INTs

9 RATT 15 Yards

Coleman Key announced his commitment to Oklahoma State recently and could help what is now a question mark as to who is the backup since CSU did grant him a full release transfer. Key was a three-star coming out of high school and will also be playing baseball at OSU. Because he barely played at CSU, here's his senior year footage from HS.

Athletes

Tyrell Alexander (6'3'', 190 Pounds)

Three-Stars

Although 247 has him down as a receiver on his page, they also have him listed as an athlete on the official 2016 recruit list for Oklahoma State and reports are Arkansas want him to play corner. His stats may tell you a little better of a story as he had 1,147 yards two years ago on the ground and then caught the ball more this past season. Alexander, a three star, seems to be fully committed to OSU but also took a visit to Arkansas recently and according to Whole Hog Sports, his list is OSU, Arkansas and Tennessee. Here's his latest highlight tape he has uploaded on his Hudl, from last year.

Dillon Stoner (5'11'', 180 Pounds)

Three-Star

Stats

Listed as a safety on some recruiting sites and receiver on others, it seems he's being recruited as an athlete. However, OSU wants him to play receiver. Stoner would look to eventually take the place of David Glidden, the shifty inside receiver who was very reliable. In his Hudl film you can see Stoner display good hands, good explosiveness off the line and the ability to play the ball in the air. His film doesn't look as if he's to blind you with speed (although he does run a 4.45 40), but can make a player miss in the open field with some shifty moves. I would believe he would redshirt his freshman year but wouldn't be surprised to see him grab some early playing time on special teams or even on offense.

Running Backs

LaDarren Brown (5'8'', 170 Pounds)

Three-Stars

Stats


RuAtt RuYd RuTD Rec RecYd RecTD
106 801 12 10 168 0






According to 247, Brown has other offers from Oregon State, SMU and Arizona State. Playing time wise, Oklahoma State may have the biggest upside for someone who didn't have a whole lot of yards in high school considering he missed a majority of his junior year due to injury. He does have a lot of speed, as he ran a sub 4.4 40-yard dash in Stillwater on a visit. Here are his highlights on his Hudl page.

Justice Hill (5'9'', 180 Pounds)

Three-star

RuAtt RuYd RuTD Rec RecYd RecTD
181 1858 30 12 103 0
219 1426 22 9 129 2
400 3284 52 21 232 2

Hill might be the next big Booker T. Washington student to make a name for himself in Stillwater. After over 3,200 yards in two years as a varsity starter and more than 20 touchdowns, Hill garnered the attention of Oklahoma State scouts, leading to his verbal commitment in February of last year.

Offensive Line

This group could be literally physically, mentally and technically huge for Oklahoma State. It needs to have the biggest impact as the offensive line has been the biggest hole on the team in recent years.

Larry Williams (6'4'', 310 pounds)

Hutchinson C.C.

Three-Star OG

Beginning his career at East Carolina, Williams transferred to Hutchinson C.C. while being named an All-American there. Now, Williams is an early enrollee at Oklahoma State. Supposedly lifts a lot, big guy who is already the fourth biggest lineman the Cowboys have on the roster.

Tyler Brown (6'5'', 325)

Three-star OG

If Brown is to come to Stillwater at the weight he is listed at on 247, he'd be the second biggest lineman on the roster. Let that soak in. He has offers from TCU, Arizona State and Tulsa and was recruited by in-state rival Oklahoma. He flipped from TCU to OSU in November.

Teven Jenkins (6'6'', 295 pounds)

three-star OT

The first of two offensive linemen coming in that come in under 300 pounds. That didn't mean he isn't big or isn't good, though. At his height, he should be able to protect Mason Rudolph quite well and obviously other schools thought so as well. Jenkins brought in offers from Kansas State, Missouri and Louisville before committing to Oklahoma State.

Matt Kegel (6'5'', 303 Pounds)

Three-star OT

The guy who recently dropped his offer from Minnesota to go "home" to Oklahoma State. Kegel will be a fifth generation Cowboy. As seen in his Hudl video below, his high school team didn't rush much - you can find the first passing play about a minute and a half into it. However, Kegel leads his team in almost every rush play and is one of the few linemen following through his blocks. Although it is high school and being almost double the size of some of his opponents, he does show a lot of upside. Kegel played tackle in high school but is listed via 247 as guard. Interested in seeing where he could end up. His rush blocking could potentially help the Pokes.

Dylan Galloway (6'5'', 270 Pounds)

Three-star OT

Other than Oklahoma State, Galloway had offers from UTSA and Nevada as OSU is his only Power Five offer. Galloway was the backup on his team through his junior year but used his senior year to grow. Oklahoma State took a chance on this young man. At the weight of 270 pounds, Galloway is the smallest lineman recruit committed right now, but he still holds his own. Also playing for Coppell, he faced plenty of Division I talent at high schools like Southlake, Trinity and DeSoto. Also, this man is still almost six and a half feet tall.

Here's the full list provided by 247, or you can read the rest and more in-depth on the defensive recruits in Thomas Flemming's piece coming out soon.
