While the Cowboys are “off” on Championship weekend, they did get some good news. 4-star wide receiver Langston Anderson, the top remaining receiving target on the Cowboys 2019 board, announced a new Top-5 that included Oklahoma State.
Anderson has been methodical in his decision making process. The release of his Top-5 comes just a few weeks ahead of the early signing period, when he plans to announce. Oklahoma State is joined by Baylor, Washington State, Ole Miss, and Auburn.
The Midlothian Heritage product had 68 receptions, 1254 yards, and 21 total touchdowns in his senior year to cap off an impressive high school career. Anderson has decent size and plays even bigger, he’s physical at the point of contact, and has some nice breakaway speed. His composite ranking is three-stars, but 247 has upgraded him to a four-star rating (for good reason).
As of now, 247Sports experts have the Bears as the overwhelming favorite with to land Anderson with nine of the 11 votes in favor of Baylor. That includes five votes since Anderson made an official visit to Waco back on November 16th.
At this point it would be a surprise if Anderson picked Oklahoma State. That said, it would be a massive coup for the Pokes if receiver coach Kasey Dunn could pull it off.
The Cowboys 2019 class still has a handful of spots open to finish it up, and has missed on a few other major targets along with waiting on a few others such as Anderson and Deondrick Glass. They currently do not have a running back or receiver in the class. Oklahoma State is currently sitting at number 46 nationally and could really use a strong finish to boost it closer to where it should be by the time signing day rolls around.
