Charlie Dickey and company are starting off the recruiting class for 2022 off with bang. Sunday afternoon they picked up a commitment from highly sought after offensive tackle Kelvin Banks Jr. out of Summer Creek High School in Humble, TX.

Oklahoma State beat out recent offers from Texas and Florida State to land Banks Jr.’s talents. The 6-4, 285 pound sophomore is not currently ranked on 24/7 or Rivals. But, one can imagine that once he does get ranked it will be pretty high. This was a fantastic get for the O-line with a foundation that needs to start being relayed with the departure of guys like Johnny Wilson and Marcus Keyes at the end of this season.
Banks Jr. told Rivals:
“The main thing that really has me ready (to commit) is that they treat me like I am family there and seeing how good their academics program was a big thing for me. Their push has been really good. It’s more than just football; it’s like a brotherhood. From the jump, I loved their facilities and everything, and each coach treated me like I was their own.”
