The top-ranked high school football prospect in Kansas verbally committed to Oklahoma State on Saturday.
Emporia cornerback Jerel Morrow is the Cowboys' 12th commitment for the Class of 2013. He chose OSU over Kansas State and Nebraska, according to GoPokes.com.
"It just came down to where I felt I would be the better player and the people that I like and want to be around in college," Morrow told the website. "... The people at Oklahoma State were amazing. I know that I can go there with the facilities and coaches and be the best player I can be."
Rivals.com lists Morrow, 5-foot-11 and 180 pounds, as a four-star athlete. He had eight other offers.
Morrow missed half his junior season with a broken left ankle but recorded 24 tackles and two interceptions. As a wide receiver, he had 26 catches for 638 yards and 10 touchdowns.
A two-time Class 5A state champion in the long jump, Morrow also told GoPokes.com he planned to participate in track and field at OSU.
Verbal commitments are non-binding. Recruits can sign national letters of intent beginning in February.
