While Oklahoma State is working to land a second running back for its 2021 class, they received good news for 2022.
Four-star athlete CJ Brown of Beggs, Oklahoma, announced his commitment to the Cowboys on Friday via Twitter.
Brown picked the Cowboys over nine other offers, including Arkansas, Baylor, Iowa State, Kansas State, Memphis, Nebraska, North Texas, SMU and TCU.
The 6-foot, 175-pounder football and track athlete plays on both sides of the ball. While different schools are recruiting him to play receiver, running back, and cornerback, OSU is bringing him in at running back.
Brown is one of the 247 Sports Composite’s Top 300 players for the class of 2022, and is ranked No. 16 among 2022 athlete prospects and No. 5 overall in the state of Oklahoma.
Brown’s commitment continues a recent trend of OSU pursuing and landing some of the top talent in the state. He gives them two of the top 10 players in Oklahoma for 2022 to go with three in the 2021 class and two in 2020.
