The early signing period may not start until Wednesday, but the good news came early for Oklahoma State. Late Monday night, versatile three-star athlete Rashod Owens announced on Twitter that he will sign with the Cowboys.

The 6-foot-1, 185-pound prospect from Roosevelt High in San Antonio, Texas picked up his offer from the Cowboys just over a week ago. He picked OSU over offers from Kansas, Army, Tulane, UTSA, Texas State, and Colorado State, among others.
As to what position he will play for OSU, that’s the big question. But know this; the guy is an offensive weapon and a true athlete.
Along with playing football, Owens hoops for his high school and won the Texas Class 6A bronze medal in triple jump and was a state qualifier in the long jump this past Spring.
He plays both receiver and running back for Roosevelt, and while he did fine as a sophomore and junior, he really popped his senior year. He caught 16 passes for 210 yards and one touchdown, and carried the ball 173 times for 1,454 yards (8.4 ypc) and 23 TDs.
As a junior, Owens ran for 324 yards and five TD’s (6.6 per carry) and caught 34 passes for 589 yards and six scores.
Owens fits OSU’s recruiting MO perfectly; a versatile, multi-sport athlete who comes on late and shows real potential. The Cowboys know how to develop guys on the offensive side of the ball, so while most fans aren’t going to give OSU enough credit for this commitment because of the star rating, Owens is one to keep an eye on.
Owens is the Cowboys’ 18th commit for their 2020 class and the second athlete, joining Brennan Presley.
