One of the Cowboy's biggest recruiting targets of 2016 has signed on to play in Stillwater. Tramonda Moore, the four-star offensive lineman and No.1 overall recruit in Oklahoma, held offers from the likes of Alabama, Oklahoma, UCLA and Florida State, among others. It was reported that he had narrowed his choices down to the two state schools late, with OSU getting the last visit.
Initially, it was believed that Moore was headed to the JUCO ranks:
But less than an hour after the initial reports, Moore reaffirmed his top two schools on Twitter. Moore's post said that he would announce on Tuesday, not Wednesday, and it stated that OU and OSU were still his top two options.
Moore, a four star prospect and the No. 1 offensive line recruit in Oklahoma, was a top target for both teams. While the Cowboys now have seven offensive line commits in the 2016 class, a four star gem like Moore will be the most valuable OL newcomer.
Moore should come in and compete for immediate playing time. At 6-foot-6, 350-pounds, he is a beast and his presence should go a long way in shoring up a deficiency up front for the Pokes.
This is a big time signing for Gundy and Co. after a losing some top commits early in the cycle. The Cowboys now have seven offensive line commits for the 2016 class. Moore's size surprisingly fits right in with that of the rest of the OL commits; the current average size of the 2016 class' OL is 6'6" and 313 pounds. To see the full commit list, click here.
