2017 QB Dominoes Falling Quickly, Where Does OSU Stand?



The year is 2015. But in the recruiting world, coaches and players are already living, at least part time, in 2017. Scholarship spots fill up fast – especially at the quarterback position.

Oklahoma State has already offered four quarterbacks a scholarship for the 2017 recruiting class, and all but one have already made verbal commitments to their respective schools. Bailey Hockman (Georgia), Chris Robison (Oklahoma), and Shawn Robinson (TCU) are among the nation’s top recruits in the 2017 class and are all ranked four-star or higher prospects, according to

The only recruit yet to make a decision among those with offers is three-star quarterback Tracin Wallace. Wallace tore his ACL just a week ago, and is expected to miss the entire 2015 season. His twin, Tylan, is a four-star receiver who picked up an offer from OSU on the same day of his brother. Both are undecided on their college destination.

Tracin Wallace is one of a handful of quarterbacks in 2017 with an OSU offer.

Don’t count Tracin out just yet since he has yet to make a decision, but I don’t expect him to make any decisions regarding his college choice until he returns to the field. My guess would be that he won’t make any decisions regarding a school until his senior season at full health.

However, not every 2017 quarterback is in the same boat as Wallace. The top ranked quarterbacks in the 2017 class have fell like dominoes in the last week alone. Two blue chip prospects made their decisions, first with five-star quarterback Tate Martell pledging to Texas A&M, and next five-star quarterback Hunter Johnson committed to Tennessee. Two more of 2017’s top quarterbacks off the board.

Looking back in the 2016 recruiting class, OSU extended scholarship offers to 7 quarterbacks before under-the-radar prospect Nick Starkel made his commitment in mid-April.

For OSU, there is no reason to hit the panic button any time soon. Especially with Rudolph, Kolar, and Starkel all expected to (hopefully) be on scholarship in 2017.

2017 prospects have yet to play a snap in their junior season, so evaluating prospects at this stage is still very preliminary. As the high school season starts up again soon, I would expect coaches to begin their evaluations and throw more offers on the table. But with the current list of quarterbacks who have been offered by OSU, I would not rely on any being particularly interested with the possible exception of Tracin Wallace.

My early take on quarterbacks who could become Cowboys would be to bet on the field. Under the radar guys will pop up as the season progresses, and you can assume that if any school has those guys on the radar, it would be OSU.

As it stands, OSU has one verbal commitment in the 2017 class: linebacker Levi Draper of Collinsville, Okla. who picked OSU over Alabama, OU, Florida State and more.
