Isaac Maselera Says He Is Rock Solid

Standout Isaac Maselera of Glenpool, Okla., has been committed to Oklahoma State longer than anybody in the 2011 recruiting class other than junior college transfers Michael Bowie and Ryan Robinson, who both signed with Oklahoma State as part of the 2009 recruiting class.

Despite that, Maselera, who made his official visit to OSU this weekend, has good friends playing at the University of Tulsa and was projected as part of a predictions column in The Tulsa World that he would make a late switch to Tulsa before signing day.

"I saw that," said Maselera, who explained back when he committed that his mom had gone to Oklahoma State and that it was his favorite school. "I thought (the column) was funny because I am very committed to Oklahoma State."

Maselera missed a lot of football this past fall after standing out as one of the best defensive backs in Oklahoma as a junior with 108 tackles. He is a physical safety that loves the game and has worked very hard to improve on his cover and ball skills.

"I missed eight games this season, (with an injury to my) ankle," said Maselera. "It was very, very frustrating because when I was able to play, I felt like I played good. Everything is fine now."

Maselera is a standout for the Warriors in track as well and has an all-time best clocking in the forty of 4.39. He said the Oklahoma State coaches have been steadfast in telling him that he will play safety at Oklahoma State.

"They told me to keep working so I could get on the field as a freshman," he said. "They also said that I might get a chance to return some kicks.

"The visit this weekend went really good. I enjoyed it. The thing it allowed me to do was to see myself on campus a litte more."

Maselera said he clearly doesn't see The Tulsa World prediction coming true.

"I'm ready to be a Cowboy."
