While Oklahoma State coaches have done a better job of landing some of the top in-state talent in recent years, it looks like they’re already out on two top prospects for 2020.
So much for the Tulsa Trio
Four-star safety Myles Slusher, the second-ranked player in Oklahoma for 2020, announced on Twitter last week that he was committing to play for Oregon.
It’s a slightly interesting development, considering the belief that the Broken Arrow safety Slusher was part of a “packaged deal” with Booker T. Washington wide receiver Javian Hester and Tulsa Edmond running back Sevion Morrison. Neither Hester or Morrison have offers from Oregon, of course they never picked up offers from OSU either.
That said, it’s disappointing for OSU to see another highly talented defensive back decide to play college ball outside of the state.
Andrew Raym cuts Oklahoma State
OSU will also miss out on Oklahoma’s top-rated 2020 player as well. Four-star offensive guard Andrew Raym announced his top-five on Twitter, and did not include the Cowboys.
Raym did include Texas A&M, Michigan, LSU, Georgia and Oklahoma who he was at one time committed to.
There was some hope that OSU was in the running. Raym decommitted from OU around the time of a visit to Stillwater.
Cowboys Make Top 11
Let’s end this one on a happy note. The Cowboys did make the cut for three-star all-purpose-back Ty Jordan.
The 5-foot-7, 183-pound ball carrier from Mesquite, Texas, trimmed his list of 24 offers down to 11 with an announcement on his Twitter account.
If we’re deciphering the hashtags correctly, OSU joins Arkansas, Baylor, Houston, Missouri, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Southern California, Utah and Wisconsin.
As of now, both 247 Crystal Balls are for Texas.
Jordan finished his junior season with 1,236 rushing yards and 16 touchdowns on 165 carries and added another 14 catches for 169 receiving yards and two touchdowns.
