Fans weren’t the only people at Boone Pickens Stadium last Saturday. Oklahoma State had multiple 2019 and 2020 recruits in attendance.
The biggest visitor was Oklahoma State’s top wide receiver target for 2019, Langston Anderson.
The 3-star receiver from Midlothian, Texas spoke with Woody Wommack of Rivals about his visit to Stillwater.
“It was nice. I saw that they’re struggling at quarterback but they have Spencer Sanders who is going to be in there next year. He’s going to be a really good player. The future is bright. I got to meet Coach Gundy and sit down and talk with him and that was amazing.. I liked what he talked about. The wide receivers coach is a real good coach and you can tell he knows what he’s doing and the whole staff was treating me like family. I had a good time.”
He also discussed where he fits in the offense and how OSU’s passing game will impact his recruitment. Anderson also had positive things to say two other Big 12 teams recruiting him; Texas Tech and Baylor.
Most importantly though, was what he had to say about recruiting timeline and when he plans to make a commitment.
“I’m going to cut my list to four and then those will be the four finalists I choose from on Dec. 19. I’m not sure who is going to make it right now but Washington State is talking to me a lot, TCU is still hitting me up and so is Ole Miss. I don’t think I’m going to take all three of my remaining visits, probably just two more and I think Washington State will be one of them. I don’t know about the fourth one yet.”
Arizona State was Anderson’s first official visit, followed by Oklahoma State. It looks like Washington State will also get one. Anderson said he doesn’t plan to make official visits to Texas Tech or Baylor since they are in Texas, and I would guess he makes the same decision about TCU. That leaves Arizona, Nebraska, Ole Miss, and Kansas State as the remaining candidates for his final visit based on his previously announced Top 10.
At this point, I think Texas Tech and Baylor will make his top four and feel good about Oklahoma State potentially making it as well. What happens with his final two official visits will be something to keep a close eye on.
As of now Baylor is the favorite to land Anderson based on 247Sports experts.
