Recruiting: Cowboys Withdraw Barree's Offer

The Oklahoma State commitment list shrank as former DeSoto (Texas) High School linebacker Bradley Barree has had his scholarship offer pulled by Oklahoma State. The story regarding Barree and his sudden departure from DeSoto High School is going to be in Thursday morning's edition of The Dallas Morning News.

Barree reportedly is tranferring to Trinity Christian Academy where he will be eligible to play immediately escaping UIL transfer rules. The former tight end first made a big impression on Oklahoma State coaches at the Cowboy football camp this summer. He played so well in the camp that he earned a scholarship offer then and there by OSU. He accepted and became one of the first commitments in the recruiting class.

Barree went on to have an outstanding start to the season and was spotlighted as one of the top players in the DFW area. Reports of problems first surfaced last weekend as it became apparent that Barree would not be remaining at DeSoto. OSU pulled its scholarship offer earlier this week. Since we have heard several versions of what transpired we will leave the breaking of the details to The Dallas Morning News.

Barree's departure from the OSU recruiting class leaves OSU with 16 commitments and it also opens up a scholarship offer for the linebacker position. One strong candidate would be Houston Yates linebacker Tyrell Graham. Graham favors Oklahoma State.
