With Oklahoma State’s 2019 class mostly complete, the coaching staff is putting a lot of energy into the 2020 class. Let’s take a look at the latest news regarding the next class of potential Cowboys.

Cowboys Offer 4-star Receiver

Oklahoma State will lose at least one starting wide receiver after the 2019 season in Tyron Johnson, so adding a talented prospect to fill his place will be high on the Cowboys list for 2020. They hope that might be Marvin Mims Jr.

Mims is a 6-foot-1, 165-lb prospect out of Saint Louis, Missouri. He wrapped up a junior season for Lone Star High that saw him grab 59 balls for 1,158 yards and 14 touchdowns.

Oklahoma State is just the latest school to offer the 4-star receiver, bringing the total to 21 schools. The list includes Oklahoma State, Ohio State, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Texas A&M, TCU, Texas Tech, Vanderbilt, Mississippi State, and Washington State, among others. It’s a list I expect will continue to grow.

Mims is OSU’s third receiver offer for 2020, and it’s easy to see why after watching his highlights.

OSU Makes Top-10 for 2020 Running Back

While Oklahoma State is still working to line-up a talented running back, they got some good news in their efforts to land a back for 2020; 4-star athlete Teriyon (Mookie) Cooper named the Cowboys to his top-10.

Joining the Cowboys are Nebraska, LSU, Texas, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, Alabama, Missouri, and Illinois. As of now, 247Sports experts have the Longhorns as the favorites to land the Saint Louis area prospect.

Cooper is listed as an athlete and running back, but is being recruited to play slot receiver. In his junior season with Trinity Catholic, Cooper accounted for 261 yards and three touchdowns on the ground and 834 yards and nine touchdowns on 28 receptions. He also racked up 217 punt return yards and two touchdowns on seven returns.
