"Everything has been going good. It's calmed down since I switched and committed to Oklahoma State, and that's good because during the holidays we actually have been moving into our new house from our old house," explained Chelf. "In our new house we've been getting the new carpet and the floors put down. I'm just a box mover."
Chelf had a strong senior season with 135 carries for 734 yards and 11 touchdowns rushing, he completed 141-of-247 passing for 2,234 yards and 20 touchdowns with just 7 interceptions. And he did that all against some pretty stout 6A competition like playoff teams Union, Jenks, Stillwater, and Broken Arrow.
Chelf had committed late in the summer to Tulsa and offensive coordinator and quarterback guru Gus Malzahn before swtiching to Oklahoma State and offensive coordinator Gunter Brewer, who along with head coach Mike Gundy, was looking on the recruiting trail for the closest quarterback prospect out there to current OSU quarterback Zac Robinson in ability and potential.
With Malzahn leaving Tulsa for Auburn, the switch really made sense.
"Yeah, I'd heard talk that Coach Malzahn was going to leave, so that certainly made my decision much easier, but I was really wanting to go to Oklahoma State," said Chelf, who will make his official visit to OSU next weekend, a huge weekend for the Cowboys recruiting effort.
"My dad keeps up with that and he tells me when a new player commits (to OSU)," said Chelf when asked if he follows recruiting. "I know and I've talked to all the Oklahoma guys. I've talked to David Paulsen (fullback committed out of Georgia) some."
Chelf had also previously told us that Gundy had told him he wanted him to play some sport in the spring to stay competitive. We asked Chelf if he'd decided between track and baseball?
"I'm still talking to my parents about that and I'm leaning toward running track,' said Chelf. "The track coach really wants me to run. We haven't been very good at track (at Enid), but the coach thinks we have a chance to be really good on the relay, 4X100 relay team. He has talked to me every day."
Chelf will get his chance to help the recruiting effort because his visit next weekend will come on the most crowded visit weekend for Oklahoma State in the recruiting season.
