Recruiting: Cowboys Pick Up 2011 Commitment

The Oklahoma State football coaching staff already has 22 verbal commitments for the recruiting class of 2010, and still has some work to do before next February's signing day. But the Cowboys got a jump start on next year's class when they received their first commitment Friday morning for the Class of 2011.

Isaac Maselera helped his No. 1-ranked Class 4A Glenpool (Okla.) Warriors to a convincing 56-0 victory over McLoud on Thursday night, and then called OSU head coach Mike Gundy and associate head coach Joe DeForest on Friday morning to become the first commitment in the Class of 2011.

"I verbally committed to Oklahoma State this morning," said the 6-foot-1, 185-pound junior safety prospect at Glenpool.

"I've always wanted to go to OSU, and I've got the opportunity to go, so I decided to go ahead and commit," said Maselera, who had a eight tackles and a forced fumble in Thursday night's victory, while also scoring on a 9-yard run.

"Their facilities are just too great to pass up. OSU is just the place for me to be," he added.

Maselera attended Oklahoma State's season opener against Georgia on Sept. 5, and was awaiting an official offer from the Cowboys. When that offer came in the mail about 10 days ago, it didn't take long for him to make a decision.

How does it feel to be the first recruit in the Class of 2011? "The coaches talked about it and they were pretty excited for me," Maselera said.
