Long-time Oklahoma State football target Allen Horace Jr., a 2020 tight end from Crockett, Texas, committed on Sunday to Arkansas over OSU, Baylor, Nebraska and Texas Tech.
The 6-4, 233 pound prospect had been on OSU’s radar for over a year now. He was offered by the Pokes last May but recruited well before then. At the time of his offer last May, OSU was only one of two programs to offer him.
Arkansas made a spirited run at him to sway him, though. After offering last June, they landed two visits — one unofficial, one official — in recent months to win him over. Horace visited OSU on several occasions, most recently last summer based off 247’s timeline events.
At the moment there doesn’t appear to be a gettable tight end for OSU in 2020 among the recruits who already hold offers. Horace is off the board and Arkansas-bound to join ex-SMU coach Chad Morris, while other offerees Jalin Conyers, Jack Yary and Brandon Frazier — from Texas, California and Texas, respectively — have dozens of other opportunities elsewhere.
OSU is set at tight end for the foreseeable future if there is a bright side here. QB-turned-tight end Jelani Woods figures to be a starter in 2019, and four-star signee Grayson Boomer, who will be a freshman this season, has the size, skills and instincts to be a day one contributor in some form or fashion.
