Jonovan Griffin Switches To Oklahoma State

Jonovan Griffin switched his commitment Thursday from Texas-El Paso to Oklahoma State, just one day after receiving an offer from the Cowboys. The 6-0, 175-pound quarterback/athlete from McKinney (Boyd), Texas was recruited to play cornerback at Oklahoma State. He texted GoPokes.com on Thursday afternoon to confirm that he had committed to Oklahoma State.

"Yes sirrrrrrrrrr," Griffin said in the text message. "I am committed to Oklahoma State."

The Boyd Broncos, 8-2, open play in the Class 5A Division I playoffs against Richardson on Friday night at Plano's Clark Stadium.

This season, Griffin rushed for 1,017 yards and 12 touchdowns on 135 carries and he has thrown for 1,418 yards completing 104 of 171 passes with 10 touchdowns with just for interceptions as the Broncos quarterback. He has even punted once this season.

Last week in the regular season finale against rival McKinney, Griffin, who has been clocked in the 4.4 range, ran for 181 yards and three touchdowns on 17 carries. He threw for 133 yards and two more scores.

Griffin becomes the 20th commitment in OSU's Class of 2011, and the second cornerback prospect, joining Mikeatavius Jones of Galena Park North Shore.
