Four-star wide receiver Talyn Shettron announced on Wednesday he’s flipping his commitment from Oklahoma to Oklahoma State.

The Edmond Santa Fe product decided to flip his commitment at the same time his brother Tabry — a tight end in the class of 2021 — announced a commitment to OSU. Tabry chose OSU over offers from Kansas State, Air Force and a host of Ivy League schools.

The addition of the Shettron brothers brings Oklahoma State’s recruiting class rank to No. 15 in the nation, up eight spots from its previous No. 23 ranking. Talyn becomes the second committed wide receiver in the class, joining Pawhuska (OK) wide out Mason Gilkey. Bixby (OK) star Braylin Presley could play receiver as well, but plays running back for the Spartans and is listed as an “athlete.” Tabry is the only committed tight end in the class.

Shettron is the first top 100 commit for the Cowboys in more than a decade. Beggs safety Kendal Daniels was part of the Cowboys class of 2021, and was ranked No. 100 in the nation after transferring to OSU shortly after arriving at Texas A&M, where he had originally signed his letter of intent.

The Pokes 2021 class will have another chance to improve on Thursday when Rowlett (TX) defensive lineman Micheal Ibukun-Okeyode announces his commitment. The Rowlett product officially visited OSU back on June 11 and his commitment is believed to be between OSU and SMU. Deer Creek (OK) offensive lineman Jacob Sexton will commit on Saturday, and his recruitment is believed to be between OU and OSU.

The addition of Talyn Shettron may mean the Cowboys are mostly done recruiting the receiver position for the class of 2021. They remain in the top 5 for four-star Spearman (TX) wide receiver Brenen Thompson, but his recruitment is expected to be between Texas and Clemson. Tabry Shettron could be the only tight end OSU takes in this class.
