Sulphur linebacker Eric Preast becomes the 15th commitment. When we spoke to him last he was trying to call OSU head coach Les Miles to commit. The Cowboys needed time to make sure Preast would fit in for them as well as Preast thought he would fit.

"Coach Miles accepted my commitment four or five days ago," said Preast Sunday evening. "Oklahoma State has been my favorite growing up. I always wanted to go there, and I've always rooted for them. I have a lot of friends there. It is a great program that I feel I will really fit into."

Preast was hampered by hamstring injuries last season, but came back in the playoffs to make 44 tackles in the postseason for the 3A State Champs including 20 tackles in the State Championship Game. This season he will double as a linebacker and a tailback. He is 6-2, 215 pounds with 4.6 speed.
