Oklahoma State’s newest commitment comes at a position that the Cowboys didn’t take a player from in the class of 2021, and from a player that will join one of his high school teammates in Stillwater.
Frisco Lone Star (TX) quarterback Garret Rangel committed to Oklahoma State on Friday night. The rising senior has played with OSU signee Jaden Nixon for the last two seasons with the Lone Star Rangers.
Rangel chose the Cowboys over offers from Virginia Tech, Utah and Houston, among others. Rangel passed for 2,422 yards and 27 touchdowns to five interceptions, according to the Dallas Morning News. Rangel and Nixon led Lone Star to a 7-4 record and lost in the third round of the playoffs to Highland Park 30-20. The dynamic duo led the Rangers to a 14-1 record and an appearance in the state semifinals the year before, along with current OU wide receiver Marvin Mims Jr.
Rangel is rated as a three-star recruit and the 427th best player in the nation, according to 247sports.com. The site also has him listed as the 17th best pro style quarterback in the class of 2022.
Oklahoma State offered Rangel early after his stellar sophomore campaign. Last summer, Adam Lunt wrote on Twitter that the Cowboys should make the Frisco, Texas product a top priority for the class of 2022. That top priority is now committed, though there is still a long way to go until National Signing Day.
Garret Rangel is really advanced as a QB for being just a Sophomore. (c/o 22 Frisco Lone Star 50 TDs vs. 7 INTs) Here are 3 clips of him looking off Safeties and throwing lasers. He should be priority # 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 for OSU in regards to the 2022 class. pic.twitter.com/BVakpyBc9H— Adam Lunt (@AdamLunt817) May 6, 2020
Nixon told me last fall that Rangel was one of the players he was recruiting to join him in Stillwater. That effort has paid off for the Cowboys as Rangel has the chance to team up with Nixon in the backfield at the collegiate level after playing together in high school. Rangel has the talent to be a star at Oklahoma State, but football is far from the only thing he is talented at. Learn more about the future Cowboy quarterback below!
