OSU Picks Up Another Running Back In Childs

Sometimes players help recruit players at the same position. One would think the competition would not make that possible but Oklahoma State running back Caleb Muncrief was the host this weekend during the official visit by Houston Cypress Ridge runner Rennie Childs. It seems everyone got along because Childs said that he is going to be a Cowboy.

"I committed," said Childs on his way to the Oklahoma City airport for an early afternoon flight home to Houston. "I'm done.

"My visit went real good and I had fun. I was looking for an offense that I could fit in, one where I knew what they were doing. I was looking for a place I could call home and a place that made me feel like home. I found it this weekend," he said.

Academically, Childs said he is undecided on a major and thought he might wait several semesters before declaring one.

Childs said his host was Muncrief and that they got along great. It didn't hurt for Childs to see so many of the other Cowboys prospects that are committed and after signing day will officially be in his class at Oklahoma State.

Childs (5-10, 180) was a late bloomer in that he blew up at Cypress Ridge this season with 1,945 rushing yards and 21 touchdowns.

He had previously visited Colorado State, Houston and Utah State, but in just the past two weeks had picked up interest (and offers) from Oklahoma State and TCU. Oregon also had shown interest.

Childs said he had a visit scheduled for next weekend to TCU, but he also said he is done with recruiting. You can expect TCU will likely tug on that pledge.

Childs joins Corion Webster of Atlanta, Texas as the second running back commitments in the Cowboys 2013 recruiting class.
