After a nice Memorial Day holiday weekend, Oklahoma State has hit the recruiting trail hard, handing out two new offers to in-state 2020 prospects.
We’ll start with three-star running back Isaiah Jacobs.
The ball carrier from Owasso, Oklahoma touts an impressive offer list that includes Michigan, Ole Miss, Nebraska, Arkansas, Iowa State, and Maryland, among others. To be honest, it’s a little odd that OSU waited this long to offer the 6th best player in the state, according to 247.
The other team to keep an eye on is Alabama, who is reportedly keeping a very close eye on Isaiah. You’d have to expect them to be in a really good spot here as Jacobs is the younger brother of Josh Jacobs, the Crimson Tide running back who was just drafted No. 24 overall by Oakland.
As a junior last season, Jacobs ran for 1,024 yards and nine touchdowns on 151 carries, and caught another 27 balls for 296 yards and a TD.
Next up is another in-state prospect; three-star linebacker Krishawn Brown out of Booker T. Washington in Tulsa. OSU is just the thid group-of-five offer and fourth overall for Brown, joining Kansas, Texas State, East Central, and Howard.
Brown has had an impressive offseason so far, making a strong impression at the Rivals 3-Stripe Camp in Dallas back in March where he was named the linebacker MVP and had one of the more impressive interceptions made.

We boiled them down to the four best!

Brown saw action in 10 games as a junior last season for the Hornets, leading the team with 119 tackles, including a team leading 14 sacks and 30 TFLs, which were the second most. He also grabbed one interception and forced and recovered four fumbles.
The Cowboys continue to make linebacker a priority for the 2020 class, handing out more offers despite two commits already in the class in three-stars Brynden Walker and Cole Thompson. Brown would be a sneaky good pick up to add to the group.
