Recruiting: Analysis Of OSU's 2008 Class

We really didn't anticipate needing to do this so early but with the mad rush of commitments that the Oklahoma State coaching staff has garnered in the past week and a half the Cowboys are rapidly approaching the midway point to the 2008 recruiting class. It was much earlier than could be anticipated even just two weeks ago.

One of our subscribers (username of OSUobserver) asked how many scholarships the Cowboys have and how they might be devoted to each position? We also add names to go with those positions.

Again, Oklahoma State's coaching staff -- and all coaching staffs -- are restricted by NCAA rules from discussing any recruits by name. However, I can tell you I have discussed how many scholarships are available and where the coaching staff intends to use them. I would not guarantee this to be exact but I would think it would be very close to what the staff has posted in their staff/war room.
