Scout Now: Oklahoma State Picks Up Pair Of Commits

Robert Allen talks about Oklahoma State's two newest commits in Tyler Brown of Lexington, Okla., and Tyrell Alexander of Lancaster, Texas.

A double dip day of football commitments doesn't come along very often during the season, but Tuesday revealed the 17th and 18th pledges for Oklahoma State in the 2016 recruiting class.

One of them is a former commit coming back to the Cowboys, while the other is an in-state offensive lineman that switched from Big 12 rival TCU to OSU. Wide receiver/athlete Tyrell Alexander of Lancaster, Texas celebrated his birthday on Monday by letting family members and friends know he was back again as a commitment to Oklahoma State. Huge 6-6, 315-pound Lexington, Okla., offensive lineman Tyler Brown broke from being committed to TCU to switching to Oklahoma State on his Twitter account.

Brown, who is incredibly strong and still fast enough to run on relay teams in track for Lexington, helped lead his high school team to a playoff appearance before they bowed out in the first round to Davis 47-26 last Friday night. He now will be involved in power lifting until the track season starts this spring.

He had been weighing his previous commitment to TCU since August as that is what he told in an interview on Tuesday.

"I had been thinking about it for a long time," confirmed Brown. "Oklahoma State was my first choice and they are closer to home, closer to family, and closer to my mom. I have two cousins that go to school there now and OSU will be better fit for me in football and academically."

Brown had been committed to TCU since this summer. He had 14 scholarship offers including Arizona State, Houston, Memphis, Missouri, TCU, and Tulsa.

Alexander became the first commitment in the Oklahoma State class last January, but this summer decided to jump off and look around.  Things had looked good the last two OSU home games as he was in attendance as an unofficial visitor for wins over Kansas and TCU.

A quarterback as a junior that threw for 719 yards and seven touchdowns while rushing for 1,147 yards and 10 touchdowns, Alexander has moved back to receiver this season. In last week's 50-3 first-round playoff win over Seagoville he scored on a pass reception and on a run. This week Lancaster (8-3/5-2) plays Hallsville in the second round of the UIL state playoffs.

Alexander had 12 offers from schools such as Arizona State, Arkansas, Houston, Tennessee, Baylor, Iowa State, TCU, Tulsa, and West Virginia.

Oklahoma State now has 18 commitments. Alexander is the second wide receiver commitment in the class, while Brown is the fifth offensive line commitment in the class.
