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.
If you missed it, Oklahoma State added their 12th commit of the 2018 class in 3-star safety Kanion Williams on Friday.
Meanwhile 2018 3-star safety Israel Mukuamu had some good things to say about Oklahoma State including about Mike Gundy and his visit to Stillwater.
Oklahoma State made the cut for three 2018 players this week, beginning with junior college defensive tackle Emmitt Gooden who made an unofficial visit to Stillwater this weekend.

Gooden is a former four-star defensive end from Brownsville, Tennessee who signed with Mississippi State out of high school. He failed to academically qualify and ended up at Independence C.C. in Kansas. Gooden switched positions while a JUCO player from DE to DT.
Before his trek to OSU, Gooden announced he had trimmed his schools down to 20 including OSU, OU, Alabama, Missouri, Arkansas, West Virginia, TCU, NC State, LSU, Arizona State, Mississippi St., Georgia, Louisville, Colorado, USC, Texas A&M, Memphis, UAB, UTSA, and Tennessee St.
At the moment 247Sports has Mississippi State, Louisville, and Arkansas as the favorites.
Speaking of making the cut, OSU made the final 15 of 4-star safety DeMarvion Overshown.
Here it is.....#top15 pic.twitter.com/6xoGhMx2ra— DeMarvion Overshown (@dee_overshown6) May 18, 2017
Overshown is a 6-foot-4, 200-lb. defensive back who also plays outside linebacker for Arp, Texas. He trimmed his list of 26 offers down to 15 schools earlier this week, including OSU, OU, Texas, TCU, Baylor, Texas A&M, Arkansas, Auburn, Florida State, Florida, Ohio State, Alabama, LSU, Clemson, and Stanford.
As of now, 247Sports has the Longhorns as the overwhelming favorite to land Overshown.
In his junior Season for Arp, Overshown tallied 153 tackles including six TFLs, one forced fumble and three interceptions. He was named the District 9-3A-II Defensive MVP for his efforts.
Check out his highlight reel and you’ll understand why he would be a great addition to OSU’s 2018 class.
OSU also made the top-10 for 3-star dual-threat quarterback James Graham.
Fitzgerald ATH James Graham releases his top 10 schools pic.twitter.com/oBcnfXiRFW— Jesse Lynch (@CoachJesseLynch) May 19, 2017
The 6-foot-1, 180-lb QB plays for Fitzgerald, GA where last season he accounted for 950 yards in seven games and rushed for 330 on just 54 carries.
Lynch trimmed his offers list down from 18 to 10 including OSU, Michigan, West Virginia, Virginia Tech, Ole’ Miss, Alabama, Auburn, Georgia Tech, Georgia, and Miami.
At the moment OSU has a dual threat quarterback commit in 4-star Spencer Sanders. We’ll have to see moving forward if that will have any impact on Lynch’s decision.
In the meantime, take a look at what Lynch would bring to Stillwater if he chooses OSU.
OSU coaches made offers to a handful of prospects this week including to Washington State 2018 commit Tyree Wilson.
Blessed to receive an offer from Oklahoma State University ! #cowboyup ! pic.twitter.com/ElE2SfdqTY— [Tÿrëë Wïlśöñ]•7️⃣ (@tyreesoclean23) May 16, 2017
Wilson is a 6-foot-4, 220-lb. defensive end and outside linebacker for West Rusk High School in New London, TX. When he committed to Washington State back on March 28th, the Cougars were his only power-5 team offer and only is second offer total. Since committing, Wilson has gained offers from Oklahoma State and Kansas, as well as Memphis, Tulane, Tulsa, Houston, SMU, Southern Miss, Louisiana Monroe and Texas State bringing his offer total to 12.
While there’s no indication to believe Wilson is wavering in his commitment to the Cougars, the fact that he is still posting offers from other schools on his Twitter could be a sign that the influx of other options is swaying him to rethink his decision. At least, that’s what the coaches at Wisconsin must think.
In his junior season he had 74 tackles, two forced fumbles, and one interception. You’ll see some of those in his highlight reel below.
OSU also did some work on the 2019 class by offering quarterback Grant Tisdale.
Honored and blessed to say I have received an offer from my mother's Alma Mater, Oklahoma State Univeristy! @air14football pic.twitter.com/enLI0u98tE— Grant Tisdale (@gmtizz) May 19, 2017
Tisdale is a 6-foot-1, 204-lb. dual-threat QB from Allen, TX.
His offer list has really picked up over the last few months. Along with OSU, Tisdale has received offers from Oregon, Ohio State, Baylor, Utah, and Mississippi State. Right now, 247Sports has Ohio State as the favorite to land Tisdale.
In his sophomore season, Tisdale completed 34-of-55 passes for 522 yards and six touchdowns to go along with 185 yards and three TDs on 43 rushing attempts.
OSU also made an offer to 2019 wide receiver prospect Garrett Wilson.
Excited to receive an from offer from Oklahoma State University! #GoPokes #LiveOrange pic.twitter.com/T6cxeUU1jE— Garrett Wilson (@Bilson_5) May 17, 2017
The 6-foot-0, 170-lb. WR from Lake Travis High School in Austin, TX already has offers from 11 schools including OSU, TCU, Baylor, Arkansas, Tennessee, and Wisconsin among others. Right now, 247Sports is predicting Wilson will choose Texas, despite not having an offer from the Longhorns yet.
Last season Wilson caught 53 passes for 699 yards and 12 touchdowns. Check out his highlight reel below.
Speaking of 2019 wide receivers, OSU made an offer to Devonta Lee.
Blessed to receive an offer from the university of Oklahoma state cowboys ⚫️ @Beast1Athletics @DemetricDWarren @JJMcCleskey pic.twitter.com/8WudMUAmME— Devonta Lee (@DevontaleeLee) May 17, 2017
Lee is a 6-foot-2, 202-lb WR from Amite, Louisiana and already being considered one of the best receivers in his class.
Oklahoma State is his 10th offer, and part of an impressive list that includes LSU, Florida, Auburn, Florida State, Miami, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Ole Miss, and Arkansas. As of now 247Sports says LSU is most likely to land Lee and keep him close to home.
Take a look at his highlight reel below.
Finally, OSU planning for the future by offering 2020 athlete Kelvontay Dixon.

Dixon currently play cornerback and running back for Carthage, Texas. He has offers from four schools including OSU, Baylor, TCU, and Colorado.
Dixon is the younger brother of another Carthage prospect OSU is keen on, 2018 running back Keaontay Ingram. Not that Dixon doesn’t warrant an offer on his own, it’s hard not to believe there isn’t some connection between this offer and the desire to land Ingram.
