Can I just take a moment to say how much I LOVE Josh Henson, the new offensive line coach? Because what he has done lately is incredible.
After former coach Greg Adkins brought in exactly zero four-year offensive line commits, Henson (an OSU alumnus himself) came in and has killed the game, securing commitments from four offensive linemen for the 2018 class including two from the state of Oklahoma.
Tyrese Williams is the latest commit for Oklahoma State, and the third in three days for Mike Gundy and Co.

In his Twitter announcement, Williams wrote,
“First of all I would like to thank God for blessing me with the opportunities to be able to play football at the next level. I would like to thank my wonderful family for their tremendous support throughout my whole recruiting process, my coaches and my trainer for mentoring and shaping me into the player that I am today, and all the recruiters, coaches, and universities for giving me opportunities to play football for their programs. After talking with my parents, coaches, and family members, I am truly blessed to say that I will be committing to Oklahoma State University.”
Williams is a 6-3, 285 lb guard out of Cy Ridge High School in Houston, TX.
In 2016, Williams was First-Team All District, as well as an All-State Honorable Mention, per his Twitter account. He was also the offensive line MVP of the 2017 Nike Opening according to Twitter.
Williams chose the Cowboys over teams such as Cal, Houston, Utah, Georgia Tech and more. The Cowboys were the only Big 12 offer Williams had, according to 247Sports.
Here are the highlights from his junior season.
