Oklahoma State has landed a commitment from Missouri City (TX) Ridge Point offensive tackle Calvin Harvey, who was previously committed to Louisiana Tech.

Harvey ranks as a three-star recruit and No. 1453 in the nation according to the 247sports composite. Oklahoma State pushed hard in recent weeks to flip Harvey’s commitment, and a Homecoming weekend visit last weekend helped seal the deal. Harvey is the second commitment from Fort Bend Ridge Point High — just outside of Houston — in as many years, joining freshman wide receiver John Paul Richardson.

Oklahoma State now has 15 committed players in its class of 2022. Harvey becomes the third offensive lineman in the class, joining four-star JUCO transfer Tyrone Webber and three-star Austin Kawecki from Frisco (TX) Lebanon Trail. Harvey is by far OSU’s biggest offensive lineman commitment at 6-foot-8 and 330 pounds.

Harvey’s commitment moves Oklahoma State’s class up three spots to No. 28 in the nation. The class remains No. 5 in the Big 12, trailing Texas (6), Oklahoma (7), West Virginia (23) and Iowa State (26). West Virginia and Iowa State have 18 and 19 commitments respectively, and OSU’s average recruit ranking is higher than both of those teams.

So... Ridge Point pipeline anyone? Gundy and the staff rarely dip into Houston, and Ridge Point is a great school to break into from a talent standpoint.

The attention could now turn to those recruits in TCU’s and Texas Tech’s recruiting classes, filled with players who committed to play for coaches who are now no longer with those two teams. Harvey adds to what has become perhaps Mike Gundy’s best recruiting class ever. Check out Harvey’s highlights below.
