Finefeuiaki Set On Cowboys After Visit

Sione Finefeuiaki from the College of San Mateo in California is looking forward to signing on Wednesday after making his official visit to Oklahoma State over the weekend.

The mystery with the Cowboy back visitors this weekend was with Texas high schooler Tyler Henderson, but it was expected to be smooth sailing with College of San Mateo prospect Sione Finefeuiaki and it was.

"The visit went well and I really liked it," Finefeuiaki said and also told us that his host this weekend was defensive tackle Vili Leveni. "We toured Stillwater and the Oklahoma State campus and saw all the facilities. I'm excited about coming to school here. I will sign on Wednesday morning and be back in the summer."

Finefeuiaki is a sophomore-to-be so he will have three seasons to play at Oklahoma State after finishing up at College of San Mateo in May. He confirmed for us that he is 6-0, 245 pounds, and was likely measured and weighed on his official visit.

He played fullback and some h-back this past season on an unbeaten regular season team that won the Bay Six Conference Championship in the California Community College Athletic Association before losing a first-round playoff game.

This past season he carried the ball 17 times for 120 yards and a 7.1 yards per carry average. He scored once on the ground. He caught 34 passes for 495 yards and seven touchdowns. Most of all, he is powerful blocker and that was the top trait that lured Oklahoma State into recruiting him.

Cowboy backs coach Jason McEndoo could not identify him by name, but after he committed to Oklahoma State, McEndoo tweeted, "Found my dozer for next season." The tweet was accompanied with a video of a bulldozer smashing a car.
