Oklahoma State has had its fair share of studs at wide-out. Names like Bryant, Blackmon, Bowman and Stewart bring warm fuzzy feelings to OSU fans everywhere. The list goes on and on. Woods, Dykes, Cooper, Glidden...
With James Washington on his way to cementing his place on the list of elite Cowboy receivers, what will the next wave of playmakers look like?
Tylan Wallace (Committed)
On March 28 the Cowboys got by far their biggest commitment of the class in the form of ESPN 300 Tylan Wallace and his twin brother Tracin.
Here's the pertinent info on Tylan. He's a four-star wide receiver from South Hills HS in Fort Worth, TX. At 5-foot-11.5 and 179 pounds he has the size to come in and compete for early snaps.
He's fast too.

Wallace is the star of the Cowboys' 2017 class and should be able to compete early. even in a deep receiving corps.
Per 247Sports, here are Tylan's stats.
Oklahoma State was one of the first schools to come calling on this rangy playmaker. Soon after OSU's offer, Shavers turned heads at a Nike Camp in Dallas. Shavers is now a four-star recruit per Scout.

At 6-foot-6 and 202 pounds, Shavers already looks intriguing. Add in his 4.38 time in the 40-yard dash and coaches' eyes get bigger. Then just look at how he moves for his size and offensive coordinators like Mike Yurcich are picking out nicknames for the high school junior... "Corner Fade!"??

If Yurcich and receivers coach Kasey Dunn can convince Corner Fade (I'm calling him Corner Fade now) to move to Stillwater, they would have a couple big time wide-outs waiting to take over for James Washington and Marcell Ateman.
As the offers continue to flow in for Shavers, the Cowboys will have to keep at him and hope they're early love will pay off on Signing Day.
Here are Shavers stats per 247Sports.
The Cowboys offered IMG Academy's Jhamon Ausbon last June but he ultimately made a verbal commitment to Baylor.
So blessed ! Just received an offer from Oklahoma St !! #GoPokes ⬛️ ⬛️ pic.twitter.com/7o3mX04QhW— Jhamon Ausbon (@TheJhamonAusbon) June 9, 2015
Last month, however, Ausbon announced he would reopen his recruitment and the offers started rolling in even faster, including one from his "dream school", Louisiana State.
The 6-foot-2.5, 207-pound four-star prospect from Bradenton, FL is the 11th ranked receiver in the country per 247Sports.

The competition will be stiff but the possibility of early playing time in a pass-happy offense with senior Mason Rudolph at the helm could garner the attention of the US Army All-American.
