Sione Palelei signs with Oklahoma State

All Purpose Back Sione Palelei has signed his Letter of Intent with the Cowboys

Sione Palelei of Gonzales, LA has officially signed with Oklahoma State. Palelei held offers from Arizona State, Arkansas, BYU, Hawaii, Louisiana Tech, Georgia Tech, LSU, Minnesota, Pittsburgh, Southern Miss, and Utah.

During his senior season at East Ascension High School, Palelei rushed for 828 yards on 111 carries (7.5 average) and 13 touchdowns, while adding 20 receptions for 283 yards (12.7 average) and 2 TD. Sione decided to switch his commitment from LSU to OSU in December after making a visit to Stillwater.

Here is ESPN's Evaluation of Palelei

Palelei has the size, strength and excellent playing speed for the running back position at the BCS level. Has a sturdy frame which should be able to support added bulk over time. This is a physical player capable of taking hits and winning battles in traffic. Shows outstanding quickness with the burst and second gear to split defenses and run away from defenders in space.
