After longtime commit Nick Starkel reopened his recruiting in December, the Cowboys were left to scramble to secure a QB for their 2016 class. They were able to add preferred walk-on Nyc Burns and Colorado State transfer Coleman Key, but Keondre Wudtee is their number one goal.
Today, they achieved that goal.
Wudtee was originally a Louisiana Tech commit but reopened his recruiting after OSU offered. The three-star, dual-threat QB from Parkway (Bossier City, LA), had offers from several schools including TCU, Houston and Missouri. It was reported that his final decision came down to Oklahoma State and TCU.
At 6-foot-4, the 181-pound Wudtee has the frame to grow into and could be a big time play maker. In high school he was named the 1-5A offensive MVP two straight years including his senior year where he threw for 3,466 yards and 34 touchdowns and rushed for 401 yards and five touchdowns.
With Mason Rudolph the starter at QB for the foreseeable future, Wudtee will probably redshirt, but will add much needed depth to a QB stable that has taken its hits over the last couple years.
