Recruiting never stops for college athletics, especially in the off-season. Oklahoma State coaches are hard at work right now trying to recruit the next class of players to don the orange and black.
The recruiting roundup is our way of tallying up all the latest offers and visits by potential Cowboys.
Oklahoma State coaches were on the road all week making stops in Austin and Cedar Park, Texas, Fitzgerald, Georgia, and more.
Meanwhile, a 2018 Junior College cornerback made a trip to Stillwater.

6-foot-3, 180-lb. CB Delrick Abrams Jr. made a visit to Oklahoma State on Thursday, He picked up an offer from OSU back on April 27th.
Abrams has offers from seven teams including OSU, Arkansas, Colorado, Mississippi State, West Virginia, UCLA, and Southern Miss.
Abrams played for Independence C.C. last season, where he had 30 tackles including three TFLs, and three interceptions. You’ll see some of those in this highlight reel.
Oklahoma State made a number of offers this week, including one to in-state lineman Jacob Farrell.
Despite already having commitments from four other offensive lineman, Josh Henson made an offer to 6-foot-6, 280-lb tackle Jacob Farrell. Last season for Sulpher High School, Farrell played both offensive and defensive tackle. You’ll notice that OSU coaches have started offering a lot of these two-way players who play either on both sides of the ball or at multiple positions.
OSU is Farrell’s fourth D-1 offer, joining Kansas, Texas Tech, and Utah State.

Oklahoma State is now one of the favorites to land 2018 wide-receiver Jonathan Sherperd after making an offer last week.
Blessed to say that I have received my fourteenth offer from Oklahoma State!!! pic.twitter.com/kGC7MLCBcc— Jonathan Shepherd (@Kid_Kuddi15) May 13, 2017
Shepherd is a 6-foot-4, 196-pound 3-star WR from Kilgore, TX with offers from 10 schools including Oklahoma State, TCU, Texas Tech, and Colorado State, among others. Right now, 247Sports has OSU and TCU as the presumptive favorites to land Shepherd’s talents.
Currently, OSU only has one wide receiver commit for 2018 in C.J. Moore. From the looks of Sherpherd’s highlights, he would make an excellent second commit.
Speaking of wide receivers, OSU is also targeting Kansas commit Tevailance Hunt.
Hunt, a 6-foot-2, 180-pound, 3-star WR from Texarkana, Texas committed to Kansas last month. OSU is Hunt’s first offer since his commitment, and his tenth D-1 commitment overall. It will be interesting to see if OSU is able to flip the commitment of Hunt between now and signing day.
Check out his highlight reel below.
OSU continues work to try and beef up its cornerback stock by offering 2018 3-star prospect Eddie Smith.
The 5-foot-11, 172-pound, Slidell, Louisiana prospect played corner and receiver for Salmen High School. Last season on defense he totaled 30 tackle and two interceptions, while on offense he totaled 11 catches for 275 yards and five touchdowns.
OSU is just one of Smith’s 16 offers joining Mississippi State, Louisville, Texas Tech, Oregon State, and Tennessee among others.
Check out his HUDL highlight reel.
Coaches are already working on the 2020 class, making the first offer to cornerback Jabbar Muhammad.
The 5-foot-10, 165-pound CB from Desoto will enter his sophomore season this fall.
New head coach Mike Boynton is still working to land his first 2018 commit, and is apparently going hard after 3-star center Grayson Carter.
Carter, a 6-foot-9, 225 center from Denton, Texas, has offers from a dozen schools, including OSU, OU, Texas, UCLA, Houston, and Texas A&M, among others. He’s made unofficial visits to a number of schools including Oklahoma State.
In a recent interview with Rivals, Carter said he doesn’t have a favorite, but that OSU is among the schools who have been in contact with him the most. “The people that are recruiting me the most are probably Tulsa, SMU, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.”
Grayson says he expects to narrow his list down to seven schools at the end of the summer.
Oklahoma State added a speedster to the track and field on Saturday. K.J. Cotton announced his decision on twitter... with a Star Wars reference.
Cotton went with the light-side of the force choosing America’s Brightest Orange over Tennessee. The sprinter from Papillion, Nebraska won the state titles in the 100 and 200 in 2015 and 2016.
Also, that’s a pretty awesome way to announce your school of choice.
