Oklahoma State recruiting capsule
Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Griffin
The Cowboys' signing class can be found here.
Breakdown: 19 high school, four junior college.
Positions: 5 DL, 4 OL, 4 DB, 3 WR, 3 LB, 2 RB, 1 QB, 1 FB
Where they came from: Oklahoma 7, Texas 7, Georgia 3, Mississippi 2, Indiana 1, Missouri 1, Arkansas 1, Virginia 1.
The stud: RB Dexter Pratt of Navasota, Texas. The bullish 225-pounder has already arrived on campus and could have some spot duty behind Big 12 rushing leader Kendall Hunter in the Cowboys' backfield. Pratt was ranked as the nation's 15th-best running back by Scouts Inc., and projects to become a workmanlike back at the next level. He'll start at running back and might even get a look on defense in the future because of his athleticism.
Recruiting-class sleeper: DE Anthony Rogers of North Little Rock, Ark., was an early commitment to Mississippi State who reneged after Sylvester Crooms resigned. He's still a little raw, but Oklahoma State coaches like his athleticism and his ability to fit in either a 4-3 or 3-4 defense.
The one who got away: CB Demontre Hurst of Lancaster, Texas, was an early commitment for the Cowboys who would have filled a need in the secondary. He changed his mind late in the recruiting process and opted instead for a chance to play at Oklahoma.
Needs addressed: Linebacker, defensive line, wide receiver.
Didn't get it: Cornerback.
Scouts Inc. grade: C+ (fifth in the Big 12, fifth in South Division).
My take: The Cowboys took advantage of last season's strong season to gain a foothold in Oklahoma as well as expand their national profile. Coach Mike Gundy got some key players, but really could have used Hurst.
