Oklahoma State Football Recruiting: Grading Each Position Group After Signing Day


Quarterback: F

Oklahoma State did not sign any quarterbacks in the 2013 class and thus, receive an F. However, there was already a logjam at QB, and six field generals will be on the roster for next season anyway, with the majority being underclassmen.

Running Backs: C

OK State signed just two running backs on National Signing Day, three-star recruits Corion Webster and Rennie Childs, both out of the state of Texas. Again, however, this position wasn’t all that important — the Cowboys have eight running backs returning for 2013, and adding more talent here would probably result in a plethora of transfers anyway.

Wide Receivers/Tight-Ends: B

Although Oklahoma State brings back a whopping 27 receivers (not all of them scholarship players, mind you), they do bring in two top-tier wide-outs, in four-star recruits Marcell Ateman and Ra’Shaad Samples out of Texas. Although the wide-out class is shallow, the group is a talented bunch.

Offensive Line: C

The offensive line class that Oklahoma State brought in left something to be desired. Although the Cowboys brought in five LOIs from offensive linemen, none were highly-touted on a national scale, and the best player in the group is four-star offensive guard Jack Kurzu out of St. Louis, MO.

Defensive Line: A-

Perhaps the strongest group in the class, the Cowboys did manage to bring in a good chunk of talent on the defensive line, signing three defensive tackles and three ends, with the prize of this position group being Naim Mustafaa out of Alpharetta, GA. According to Scout.com, OK State earned a top-15 class defensive line-wise.

Secondary: A+

Where Oklahoma State really nailed it though, was the secondary, which earned top-15 distinction on Scout.com. The prize of this group — and probably the entire class — was four-star safety Jordan Sterns out of Cibolo, TX. Meanwhile, the Cowboys added five other defensive backs, all three-star recruits.
