Pettigrew commits to Cowboys

The Cowboys add their 14th commitment of the recruiting season and have several others that are considering -- including one in-state prospect that has set up a visit.

Tyler Lee standout tight end Brandon Pettigrew has committed to Oklahoma State. We had really hoped to speak with the Cowboys' newest commitment and that is why we are late filing the story, but since football practice, Petigrew has been unavailable. We had confirmation on the 6-5, 235-pound tight ends' commitment this afternoon when his brother Reginald called us back and confirmed that his brother had told Oklahoma State he was committed to them.

Pettigrew, who was being recruited by the likes of Texas A&M, TCU, SMU, Houston, Arkansas, and Baylor, becomes the Cowboys second commitment from Tyler Lee as his teammate Martel Van Zant has already committed to OSU. Pettigrew, who runs really well with a 4.76 forty, could also play several other positions. He is the 14th commitment for Oklahoma State.

Standout athlete Prentiss Elliott, who has taken the state by storm with a huge senior season at running back for Tulsa School of Science and Technology, has set up a Dec. 6 official visit to Oklahoma State. Elliott, who says schools are talking to him about playing wide receiver or defensive back, is also being recruited by Tennessee, TCU, OU, Texas A&M, Kansas, Kansas State, and Colorado State. Elliott is 6-0, 175 pounds with better than 4.5 speed.

Highly regarded defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey of East Ascension High School in Gonzales, Louisiana, says he is still holding to his four month old commitment to LSU, but he is talking with other schools. "I'm still committed for now, but I'm not going to say that things couldn't change later on," said Dorsey making the commitment to the Tigers sound pretty soft. The 6-3, 293 pounder says he is hearing from Oklahoma State, Mississippi State, Alabama, and Michigan State. So far this season East Ascension is 6-2 and Dorsey has 57 tackles and four sacks despite missing two games with a bruised knee and ankle.

Nashville Brentwood Academy running back/fullback David Holbert says he is not going to pay too much attention to recruiting until his season is over. That said the 6-1, 230-pounder has set up visits to Tennessee (Dec.) and LSU (Jan.). Holbert is also considering Wisconsin, Oklahoma State,Louisville, Florida, Auburn, and Colorado.
