Jack Kurzu, a 6-foot-5, 302-pound offensive tackle from St. Louis, announced on Wednesday his commitment to the Oklahoma State football program.
Kurzu and Fred Ross, a four-star wide receiver from John Tyler High School in Tyler, Texas, are the only prospects on OSU's 2013 commitment list.
Scout.com rates Kurzu as a three-star national prospect. Among other schools he says he considered were Auburn, Florida and Missouri. Currently a junior at Mary Institute and Saint Louis Country Day School, Kurzu has made four unofficial visits to the OSU campus, most recently to watch a spring-practice session.
"I told coach Gundy (Cowboy coach Mike Gundy) that I wished I could be there tomorrow," Kurzu said to GoPokes.com. "... When I watched coach (Joe) Wickline and the offensive line at practice, I could tell he is one of the best offensive line coaches in the sport and I know he can do great things with me. I'm really excited about the opportunity at Oklahoma State."
