It’s high noon... kind of.

We’re a little late today, but forgive us. It’s been a busy morning with the start of the Early Signing Period. Here are your High Noon Highlights.

Vote for the Oklahoma State Softball Uniforms is running a poll to determine which collegiate softball squad was the best dressed for 2018, and... yep. The Cowboys are in the running.

And they should be. Look at those! Wowzas!

Can Cowboys Chant “Boomer?”

Oklahoma State’s top ranked 2019 recruit has a semi-ironic last name considering in-state rival Oklahoma’s favorite chant: Boomer. That’s Grayson Boomer to you.

He’s a four-star tight end from Collinsville, Okla., rated the No. 8 tight end in the class on the industry-consensus 247Sports Composite. He’s a big, smooth pass-catcher who showed out last summer at The Opening Finals in North Texas.

There hasn’t been a better tight end acquisition since the Eagles traded up to draft a tight end named Dallas Goedert one pick ahead of the Cowboys at the NFL Draft in Dallas the same day everyone found out future Hall of Fame Cowboys TE Jason Witten was retiring.

As Alex Krischner at the mothership goes on to explain, this isn’t the first time the Sooners have whiffed on landing a player with the last name “Boomer.” So much for this year’s class Sooners!

Speaking the Recruits’ Language

Speaking of the mothership, SBNation calls Oklahoma State’s “Red Dead Redemption” influenced graphics one of the two best themes for 2019.

As we talked about on the Facebook Live, Oklahoma State has really stepped up their graphic game in the past few years. This year’s is really impressive, including the highlight reel included in each tweet.

The Shirtless Homecoming Story

You remember the homecoming when Mike Gundy took his shirt off for... some reason.

Now, you can finally here the story of why, and how he got Mason Rudolph to do it, from the former Cowboy himself.
