Tralund Webber of Blinn College commits after visiting this past weekend

Oklahoma State picks up a verbal commitment from Tralund Webber, who earned first team All-Southwest Junior College recognition at Blinn College (Texas).

Tralund Webber certainly looks the part. He is apparently very athletic from looking at his video and talking to coaches that played against him and helped vote him 1st Team All-Southwest Junior College Football Conference this past season while playing at Blinn College (Texas).

Webber, who is 6-4, 245 pounds, visited Oklahoma State officially this past weekend and said he told Cowboys head coach Mike Gundy Sunday morning that he was going to be a Cowboy. Weber asked that we not release it until he had a chance to speak with the coaches at Minnesota where he had committed this summer.

Just a few minutes ago he text and said he had talked to the Gophers coaches and that he was ready for people to know he had switched his pledge. 

"I had a great time this weekend," Webber said earlier Sunday speaking from Oklahoma City's Will Rogers World Airport. "I liked everything about Oklahoma State. I will play defensive end and I will graduate in May and be there next summer."

Webber said his host was fellow Texan Victor Irokansi, who had played defensive end at Oklahoma State until injuries ended his playing career and he has become a valuable recruiting host for the OSU program. 

This season Webber had 35 tackles, 6.0 sacks, an interception, and a fumble recovered. Besides Oklahoma State and Minnesota, he also had scholarship offers from Arizona State, Cincinnati, Iowa State, Kansas, Memphis, Oklahoma, Purdue, and Washington State among others. 

Webber becomes the 19th verbal commitment in the 2016 Oklahoma State class and he would be eligible to sign his letter of intent on Feb. 3, 2016.
