The 6-foot-3, 198-pound Chelf switched his commitment from Tulsa to Oklahoma State last week, and made the trip to Stillwater on Friday with his parents to visit with Cowboy head coach Mike Gundy and co-offensive coordinator Gunter Brewer.
"It was pretty good. It was fun. I got to meet all the coaches and hang out," said Chelf, who threw for 4,124 yards and 34 touchdowns and rushed for 1,449 yards and 22 TDs during his high school career playing for the Enid High School Plainsmen.
Chelf said his objective on the trip was "to talk with Coach Gundy because I hadn't gotten a chance to talk to him much in person. I got a chance to meet with him and talk to all the rest of the coaches. It was just a (chance to) hang out and meet with everyone because I had already talked to Coach (Gunter) Brewer and Coach (Doug) Meacham at one of the camps."
With starting quarterback Zac Robinson expected to return for his senior season in 2009, what plans did the Cowboy coaches discuss with Chelf?
"Coach Brewer really just said that redshirting is going to be up to me. He said that if I can go out there and beat out Zac (Robinson), like he did to Bobby Reid, and if they're a better team with me on the field then I'd get to play," said Chelf. "But he said that redshirting was up to me. I think I'll probably end up redshirting because Zac's pretty good, and that's fine with me."
Chelf and his parents returned to their home in Enid late Friday night, and then he joined some of his friends on Saturday. "I went to the casino. I turned 18, so I'm able to go now. Most of my friends are older than me, so we all went and had a good time," he said.
Just how much fun? "I didn't really play anything. I just observed everyone else, so I didn't lose any money."
