Recruiting: William Cole Picks OSU

It was a show Sunday night at the Buffalo Wild Wings in Cedar Hill, Texas, as KDFW-TV Channel 4, the local Dallas Fox affiliate, was live there with Cedar Hill Longhorns quarterback/athlete William Cole. The 5-11, 173-pound speedster amassed more than 4,000 yards of total offense and 62 touchdowns in leading the Longhorns to a Class 5A state championship in Texas.

"I'm from Dallas, you know Cowboys, so I guess you know. I've got to be an Oklahoma State Cowboy," proclaimed Cole as he made his decision known that he was going to Oklahoma State.

As Cole was making the statement he was putting on the Oklahoma State cap, leaving aside the caps of Kansas and Arkansas. He also put on a No. 3 Oklahoma State jersey that he had ordered to be made for him and was shipped earlier in the week from DuPree's Sporting Goods in Stillwater.

"I just feel like it is the place to be," added Cole. "When I went on my visit I liked everything they showed me and the players there seemed like they were already my teammates."

"I'm very proud of him," said Cole's father over the screams from friends and family members there for the announcement that also included Cowboy commitment Richetti Jones out of Lincoln High School in Dallas.

"He is the best player in the state of Texas," said Cedar Hill head coach Joey McGuire. "Oklahoma State just got their best recruit tonight. There are publications out there with four- or five-star guys and they will proclaim this guy and that guy the best, but Will Cole is the best athlete in Texas."

Cole makes 24 on the Oklahoma State commitment list. There is a good chance that he will be tried on the defensive side of the ball at Oklahoma State, and he ended the program by saying he had no problem with that. Offense or defense, either one, he's just certain he will do it wearing Oklahoma State orange.
