OSU-Texas: Recruits At The Game

Which recruits were in attendance for Oklahoma State's win over the Texas Longhorns (besides, of course, quarterback Spencer Sanders, who became the Cowboys first commit for the 2018 recruiting class).

Quarterback Spencer Sanders of Denton (Ryan), Texas said that Oklahoma State's win over Texas wasn't the reason he made a verbal commitment to Mike Gundy, Mike Yurcich and the Oklahoma State Cowboys in the victorious locker room after the 49-31 win over Texas.

Sanders (pictured above) said he had been leaning the Cowboys way for awhile, but I'm going to go out on a crazy limb and say the emotions of the Big 12 win in Stillwater didn't hurt or discourage that decision, just the opposite. It is a big development as Sanders is exceptionally talented and has dual threat abilities. It gives Oklahoma State that centerpiece quarterback pledge for the 2018 class. He is likely a 4- or 5-star type player who will have the opportunity to compete in Elite 11 and other contests for quarterbacks.

In other recruiting developments on Saturday, Oklahoma State took its unofficial visits as an opportunity to verbally express to 2017 safety prospect Evan Fields of Midwest City and to 2018 safety prospect Wayne Jones of Owasso that they had a scholarship to play football and get their education at Oklahoma State.

The 5-11, 178-pound Fields wrote on Twitter that Oklahoma State becomes his 21st scholarship offer. From the information that we know, Kansas State, Arizona State, and Houston look to be his top options before his Cowboys offer.

Jones is a 6-0, 190-pounder who as a junior could end up being big enough to think about the hybrid "star" position. He has offers from Illinois, Arkansas State, New Mexico, and Texas-San Antonio with interest from many others such as Texas A&M and Arkansas.

It was a large contingent of recruits in Stillwater on Saturday with as many as 100 expected but our roll taker on the sideline could not find that many as we counted 52. There are also always some that arrive late after the group has gone from the sidelines up into the stands to watch the game.
