Football Recruiting: Oklahoma State commit Ty Williams upgraded to 4-star by 247 Sports

OSU’s unranked 2021 prospect also earns a star rating

Oklahoma State added a second four-star commit for their 2021 class without ever landing another prospect.

Recruiting service 247 Sports’ updated their class of 2021 rankings, and in doing so bumped by Muskogee, Oklahoma, safety Ty Williams to a four-star.

Williams committed to the Cowboys back on April 26th, just the second commit in the class at the time. In-state linebacker Collin Oliver, who committed last week, is OSU’s other four-star prospect.

247 gives Williams a 90 grade — a three-point bump — and ranks him as the 15th best safety in the class (+27), the No. 6 player in the state of Oklahoma, and the 233rd best player in the class.

Williams told Cowboys Ride For Free that he picked OSU in part because they’re recruiting him to play defense. He plays both DB and quarterback for Muskogee, but prefers the defensive side of the ball.

“I feel like defense is the most competitive part of football,” Williams said. “You go up against great people. Defense is football to me. Defense is basically running backwards while you’re going full speed. You’ve gotta match everybody’s full speed. I love that.”

The four-sport athlete has already played football, ran track and wrestled. He was going to compete with the baseball and swim teams this year before the Coronavirus interrupted the season.

“My goal was to play every sport before I graduate,” he said.

Along with Williams’ bump, cornerback Raymond Gay — who committed earlier this month — has now gone from unranked to earning a three-star rating.

The 5-foot-10, 175-pound receiver (who will play corner at Oklahoma State) is now 140th ranked player in Texas and the 73rd ranked corner in the class.
