Well that didn’t take long.
Roughly a week after picking up his Oklahoma State offer, 2020 three-star linebacker Jeff Roberson announced his commitment to play in orange and black.
“I want to first say thank you to my family for always supporting me,” Roberson wrote in his announcement tweet. “I also want to say thanks to Choctaw High School and the coaches for working so hard, but after an exciting recruitment process I have COMMITTED to my dream school Oklahoma State University!! #gopokes”
Roberson is the third in-state linebacker to join Oklahoma State’s 2020 class, with Bishop McGuiness’s Brynden Walker and Norman’s Cole Thompson. He is the fifth in-state prospect in the class overall, with Ardmore offensive guard Eli Russ and Bishop Kelley safety Zach Middleton.
OSU now has the No. 4, 7, 8, 13, 14 ranked players in the state for the class of 2020.
Linebacker is a priority for the class. With three committed, I wouldn’t be shocked the coaching staff work to land one more with their focus on three-star ILB Corey Flagg Jr. out of Houston and three-star OLB Catrell Wallace out of Bryant, Arkansas.
Roberson’s recruitment had been heating up recently. He has offers from 12 other schools including Nebraska, Minnesota, Texas Tech, Kansas, and Memphis, among others. The Cornhuskers and Jayhawks had been pursuing Roberson rather aggressively, with both hosting him for visits recently.
