Oklahoma State picked up its 11th commitment in the 2017 recruiting class Wednesday night. It came from in-state as Oologah defensive end Brock Martin returned the visit that defensive coordinator Glenn Spencer made to Oologah last week to watch Martin work out.
Martin made the trip to Stillwater with family to check out the campus and the Oklahoma State facilities and decided to make his commitment.
The 6-4, 220-pound Martin spoke with Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy this evening and Gundy sent out the traditional "pistols firing from Oologah," and then shortly after that Martin tweeted his message on his Twitter account @btmartin09.
Martin is a two-time state wrestling champion in Class 4A. Last season he came back from a knee injury and had 96 tackles and 17 sacks. He has 189 tackles in his high school career with the Mustangs. In addition to Oklahoma State, he had offers from Baylor, Texas Tech, Kansas, Kansas State, Memphis, Tulsa, Utah State, and Wyoming.
Martin is the 11th commitment for Oklahoma State and the second straight defensive end as Nelson Mbanasor of Pflugerville Hendrickson in Texas committed last week. The Cowboys have five commitments on the defensive side of the ball and six on the offensive side thus far.
