Texas defensive end commits to OSU
Oklahoma State has received its 11th football commitment from the Class of 2013 and the ninth from a Texas native.
Defensive end Ogbonnia Okoronkwo of Houston's Taylor High School verbally committed to the Cowboys on Wednesday night after getting an offer earlier in the day, according to Scout.com. Although he had received nine others, OSU's was "the offer he was waiting for," the website reported.
At 6-foot-3 and 220 pounds, Okoronkwo is a three-star prospect and ranked 32nd at his position nationally by Rivals.com.
As a junior playing mostly at defensive tackle, Okoronkwo had 50 tackles and 11 sacks.
OSU's other Texas commitments are from Atlanta running back Corion Webster; defensive tackle Vincent Taylor, San Antonio Madison; Jordan Sterns, Cibolo Steele; safety Deric Robertson, Killeen; offensive lineman Zach Crabtree, Mansfield; receiver Marcell Ateman, Wylie; and receiver Fred Ross, Tyler.
The Cowboys also have pledges from Denver Valor quarterback Luke Del Rio and St. Louis Mary Institute offensive lineman Jack Kurzu.
Verbal commitments are non-binding. Recruits can sign national letters of intent beginning in February.
