Oklahoma State’s run on recruiting commitments continued on Monday with College Station (A&M Consolidated), Texas safety Kolby Peel pledging to the Pokes. The 6-0, 201 (updated height and weight) said he finally got a chance to sit down and discuss his recruitment with his high school head coach Lee Fedora.

“He told me that he thought it was a great fit for me,” Peel said of his conversation with Fedora, who is also the brother of former OSU offensive coordinator and current North Carolina head coach Larry Fedora. “I had told him when I came back from my junior day up there that I really liked it and he told me then that he thought I would really enjoy playing and going to school at OSU.”

Peel, who said that the Oklahoma State coaches have sold him on playing the “star” linebacker position, a hybrid linebacker and safety combination, woke up on Monday and he was just sure after talking to Coach Fedora that he was ready to make his commitment.

“Ever since I was up there for the spring game a couple of weeks ago with my mother I knew that I liked Oklahoma State,” Peel added. “My mother liked it and had a good time and my dad had been up there and he liked it. I just jelled with the coaching staff and liked Stillwater and after I sat down with Coach Fedora it was easy.”

Peel has attracted a lot of recruiting attention and he has scholarship offers from Cincinnati, Iowa State, Indiana, Kansas, Minnesota, SMU, Texas State, and UTSA in addition to the Cowboys.

Last season Peel had 79 total tackles with five tackles for loss, a fumble caused, a fumble recovery, and a pair of interceptions. In his sophomore season he had 85 tackles, five tackles for loss, and four interceptions.
