It certainly looks like Oklahoma State will find out about a future offensive tackle addition before they find out about a cornerback addition. Scheduled to graduate at the end of this semester from California-Berkeley, Aaron Cochran has said he will make his final college football destination known the middle of this week. Cochran has said it is down to Oklahoma State, where he visited on March 4th and Texas Tech where he visited last weekend. Our sources have said his mother favors Oklahoma State, a visit that she made along with Cochran's father. His dad was on the visit to Texas Tech.
Cochran, who was a two-year starter at left tackle at Cal in an offense similar to what Oklahoma State and Texas Tech both run. Oklahoma State lost their starting left tackle in Victor Salako to graduation. This spring that position has been manned by red-shirt freshman Dylan Galloway and at times, veteran Zach Crabtree moving over from the right tackle, where he has started the last two seasons. Cochran is 6-8, 351 pounds.
Clemson cornerback Adrian Baker has now announced he is down to three schools and they are Oklahoma State, where he also visited on March 4, and Central Florida and Houston. Baker had originally stated that he would announce his decision in April, but has since said he will wait until May to announce between his three final school choices. The 6-1, 178 pound Baker will graduate from Clemson in May and because of injury has not had a lot of experience but was a standout recruit coming out of Florida in high school.
Both players can sign a Financial Aid Agreement, which commits Oklahoma State to providing them a scholarship, room and board. However, for the two players they become official and locked into their decision when they enroll and attend class this summer.
