They say two is better than one.
That’s certainly the case for Oklahoma State which landed the commitments from two wide receivers for the class of 2021; twins Blaine and Bryson Green, on Wednesday.
OSU was considered among the final three candidates to land the talented pass catchers, beating out Minnesota — where their older brother Seth plays wide receiver — and fellow Big 12 program Baylor. Other teams who offered include Auburn, Michigan State, Mississippi State, Nebraska, North Carolina, Ole Miss, TCU, Texas Tech and Washington.
Bryson is the more highly rated of the two with a four-star rating from the 247 Sports Composite and the No 40-ranked receiver and No. 250 overall player in the class. Last season for Allen, Texas he caught 36 passes for 503 yards and two touchdowns.
Gabe Brooks of 247 Sports compares Bryson to Saeed Blacknall, a former Penn State and current Steelers wide receiver.
Solidly built outside receiver with virtually college-ready size. Owns the requisite height with good bulk and still can add more weight thanks to frame. Willing and capable perimeter blocker in the run game. Sticks with blocks and will finish them with authority. Tough tackling assignment after the catch thanks to strength and physical playing style. Comes back to the ball well when needed. Not afraid to go for contested balls over the middle. Chain-mover who also shows sneaky build-up speed in the vertical game. Can get quicker off the line. Plays high at times. Can improve ability to leverage DB’s. Adequate verified testing numbers but can more explosive. Legitimate Power 5-caliber receiver who could become multi-year starter in college.
Blaine isn’t far behind Bryson as far as talent goes. He is a three-star prospect ranked as the No. 58 receiver and No. 344 overall by 247 Sports. Last season he caught 55 passes for 1,063 yards and nine touchdowns.
Blaine and Bryson are the eighth and ninth commits for OSU’s 2021 class. The Green twins join three-star Jaden Bray in “likely” rounding out the wide receiver group. Though, I would still keep an eye on three-star Bryce Stephens of John Marshall in Oklahoma City.
