Let’s take a look at the latest news regarding Oklahoma State athletics.
Gundy Talks 2019 Recruiting Class
For Oklahoma State, the 2019 recruiting cycle is almost done. While they still have one final scholarship to fill, Gundy took to multiple places to discuss the Cowboys’ class.
That includes on OSU football’s official twitter account where Gundy highlights the two latest additions; running back Deondrick Glass and transfer Israel Antwine.
Gundy also took some time to talk about the class with 247Sports, highlighting his recruiting philosophy.
“We really push hard to evaluate players that are within a six or eight-hour drive of Stillwater that fit our culture,”said Gundy. “We try to recruit specifically to our culture and position instead of just taking maybe the best available player on the board. We want to make sure we have a slot for them.”
He looked pretty good doing it too.
Former Cowboys to be Inducted
The OK Sports Hall of Fame announced its 2019 class this morning, and among the names are two former Cowboys: baseball player Mickey Tettleton and wrestler Kendall Cross.
The Oklahoman’s Nathan Ruiz takes a look at each of the inductees, including Tettleton and Cross.
Yurcich Talks Oklahoma State, Big 12
Ohio State introduced their new assistant coaches to the media today, including former Oklahoma State offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich. Along with talking about Big 12 offenses and why he chose to leave OSU, this little nugget stood out.
Mike Yurcich on what he learned from Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy: "I think the biggest thing I learned from him is you have to be yourself. I can't try to be Mike Gundy, and I'm damn sure not going to grow a mullet."— Dan Hope (@Dan_Hope) February 6, 2019

Former Walk-On Finds New Home
There has been a lot of focus on the scholarship players that are transferring from Oklahoma State. One player that you may have forgotten about is former walk-on safety Chance Cook. The 6-foot, 195-pound native of Canadian, Texas, played in all 13 games of the 2017 season, mostly on special teams, but announced he was stepping away from the program last August. Now, it looks like he has a new football home for his senior season.
