Recruiting: Broyles Is '100 Percent' A Cowboy

The fact that just a couple of hours after standout wide receiver and cornerback Ryan Broyles of Norman, Okla., made his commitment to Oklahoma State, Oklahoma called the home town product and offered a scholarship certainly concerned Cowboy recruiting enthusiasts, but maybe there is no reason for concern.

Since all that happened on an eventful Sunday, OSU assistant coach Gunter Brewer has been in the home to visit with Broyles and his parents. Broyles has had time to reflect on everything and guess what's changed? Nothing.

We spoke with Broyles as set up the other day on Wednesday afternoon to do an interview for a feature story for the Go Pokes Magazine recruiting issue. We asked Broyles if he had any second thoughts toward the Sooners.

"I haven't even thought about it," said Broyles. "I am 100 percent committed to the Cowboys."

One thing he has thought about, especially after watching Oklahoma State's triple overtime basketball win over Texas on Tuesday night, is someday being a two-sport athlete. While he isn't playing this season, Broyles is an outstanding basketball player that can penetrate off the dribble and is also a good shooter.

"That was something I was supposed to do last summer was sit down with Coach (Sean) Sutton and talk about basketball," said Broyles. "I have talked with Coach Brewer about it and he's talked about (Adarius) Bowman playing right now. If it came up I would still like to do it. I think I could play both football and basketball."

Oddly enough, last night OSU head coach Mike Gundy was watching one of Broyle's future teammates in Mart's Damian Davis play basketball. Davis has said he intends to be playing both sports in Stillwater. It might be time for Mike Gundy to ask Sean Sutton to sign a few football players because Gundy and company seem to be coming into a lot of basketball players.

Cowboy fans can simply be happy that no matter what the sport, Broyles seems to be locked in on continuing to compete in orange and black -- the same colors he's worn in high school at Norman High.
