It's very early and we already know that Oklahoma State has its first commitment in the 2017 class (and he comes from Texas where there was much the concern because only six of the 21 signees in the 2016 class were from the Lone Star State).
Just relax, as we have a feeling that the 2017 class will cycle back from being from all across the United States and Canada to being primarily a Red River class. It is with that forethought we bring you our GoPokes.com top Oklahoma and Texas targets for Oklahoma State. This is our top 10 from each side of the Red River (listed in alphabetical order).
Ty Thomas, DB, 5-11, 200, Lubbock (Cooper), Texas – Had 107 tackles, two interceptions and six tackles for losses this past season as a junior.
2017 Top 10 Texas Targets
Salid Adebo, WR, 6-1, 180, Mansfield, Texas – First team all-district on both sides of the ball at WR and CB.
Toneil Carter Jr., RB, 6-0, 198, Houston (Langham Creek), Texas – Physically well built, he has rushed for over 2,500 yards and 36 touchdowns so far in high school.
K'Lavon Chaisson (pictured above), DE, 6-4, 220, Galena Park (North Shore), Texas – One of the most sought after prospects early in the 2017 recruiting cycle. Why not jump in and swim in the big pool?
Damion Daniels, DT, 6-3, 300, Dallas (Bishop Dunne), Texas – His brother, Darrion, is already at Oklahoma State and playing well. Little brother is equally as gifted.
Avery Davis, QB, 6-0, 180, Cedar Hill, Texas – Over 3,000 yards total offense last season with 25 passing touchdowns to just four interceptions. Wow! Notre Dame wants him badly.
Will Farrar, OT, 6-5, 290, Richmond (Travis), Texas – He is big, strong, has great feet and moves really well as a pass blocker.
Omar Manning, WR, 6-2, 210, Lancaster, Texas – He had 33 catches for 671 yards and 12 touchdowns this past season playing with OSU 2016 signee Tyrell Alexander.
KD Nixon, Athlete, 5-8, 170, DeSoto, Texas – Nixon is an explosive threat about anywhere in the offense and on special teams.
Laviska Shenault Jr., WR, 6-1, 195, DeSoto, Texas – Modest numbers but so much potential from a well that Oklahoma State has done well with at DeSoto.
Marvin Wilson, DT, 6-4, 310, Houston (Bellaire Episcopal), Texas – Huge and very physical tackle that has dominated competition the past two seasons.
2017 Top Oklahoma Targets
B.J. Bradbury, DB, 6-3, 190, Adair, Oklahoma – An athletic quarterback, Bradbury picked off seven passes and I think he is a "star" LB prospect.
Justin Broiles, CB, 6-0, 175, Oklahoma City (John Marshall), Oklahoma – Get ready as it is the year of the cornerback in Oklahoma, and Broiles may be the best as he's getting early looks and offers from the likes of Miami and Florida State.
Tre Brown, CB, 5-10, 170, Tulsa (Union), Oklahoma – Very talented and in the forefront early as he already has offers from both OSU and OU.
Kamren Curl, DB, 6-2, 185, Muskogee, Oklahoma – A hard-hitting safety that is only going to get bigger and stronger.
Justin Dutton, OL, 6-5, 305, Guthrie, Oklahoma – He looks like you would expect and he plays very hard.
Brandon Evers, DT, 6-2, 287, Bixby, Oklahoma – Best inside defensive line prospect in the state for 2017 and he is branded a winner at Bixby.
Rubell Goe, WR, 6-2, 190, Oklahoma City (Bishop McGuinness), Oklahoma – An exceptional receiver talent that last season caught 62 passes for 1,390 yards and 19 touchdowns. Those are record approaching numbers for a junior in Oklahoma.
Brock Martin, LB, 6-3, 210, Oologah, Oklahoma – Following in the footsteps of K-State signee Jimmy McKinney of this past season, Martin had 96 tackles last season and will be the defensive leader for Oologah in 2016.
Gervarrius Owens, DB/LB, 6-2, 180, Moore (Southmoore), Oklahoma – Saw him play last season and fell in love with him as he is a playmaker and disruptive force on defense. Frame could lead him to linebacker.
Adrian Wolford, OT, 6-4, 295, Meeker, Oklahoma – You don't get too many top prospects out of Meeker but Wolford emerged last fall and he is legit.
