An offensive tackle target makes a virtual visit.

Oklahoma State is officially on commitment watch for the next two weeks, with one target setting a commitment date and another teasing a big announcement.

First up is 2021 three-star linebacker Rejhan Tatum, who announced Wednesday on Twitter that he will announce his commitment next Sunday.

Tatum, a 6-foot-2, 224-pound interior linebacker from Del City, Oklahoma, announced a top-three back in July that included OSU, Baylor and Boise State. He discussed OSU with Gabe Brooks of 247Sports shortly after that announcement.

“Oklahoma State is a home-state school,” Tatum told Brooks. “I watched them play while I was growing up here in Oklahoma and I had a great experience when I visited the campus last fall and I believe I would fit in great there.

OSU currently has two linebacker commits for 2021; four-star Collin Oliver from Edmond and three-star Donovan Stephens, a teammate of Tatum’s at Del City.

The other announcement OSU’s coaching staff is keeping an eye on will come on Labor Day weekend from class of 2022 four-star athlete Brenen Thompson.

Thompson has 24 offers, from schools like Alabama, Auburn, Baylor, Florida State, Michigan, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Texas, Texas A&M, and Tennessee among others.

I wouldn’t expect a commitment. More likely will be a top-10 or something. But, it’s worth watching to see if OSU can make the cut with the list of teams pursuing the speedy two-sport athlete from Spearman, Texas.

Other Notes:

OSU is still looking for its second (and third and likely fourth) offensive line commitment for their 2021 class. One of which they are hoping will come in the form of a player currently committed to Rutgers.

Albert Reese IV, a three-star offensive tackle out of Clearwater, Florida, made a virtual visit to Stillwater this past weekend.

Reese has been committed to Rutgers since May, but Oklahoma State has been pushing hard to flip the 6-foot-7, 295-pound tackle.

OSU isn’t the only ones. Michigan State and Maryland are also working hard to flip Reese.

He will be someone to keep an eye on as OSU works to round out its class. We will have more on OSU’s offensive line situation — including who to watch in recruiting — coming soon.

Oklahoma State also became the seventh school to extend an offer to class of 2022 wide receiver Keshlon “Spidey” Jackson on Wednesday.

The 6-foot, 170-pound pass-catcher from Lake Charles, Louisiana also has offers from Michigan State, Virginia, Kansas State, Colorado, Memphis, and South Alabama.

Jackson caught 27 passes for 435 yards and three touchdowns last season as a sophomore.
