A Look at the Offensive Lineman Joining Program Next Season



With the offensive line being the hot topic of discussion and cause for angst among OSU fans recently, I’ll give you a quick look at the reinforcements who are currently set to sign with the Cowboys in February. Assuming these prospects qualify academically and remain verbally committed, this group will join the program next year. Offensive line prospects generally don’t make immediate impacts upon their arrivals, but with at least four new lineman added to the roster next year, I would expect an added level of competition up front next year.

Ryan McCollum, Offensive Tackle

McCollum announced his commitment in the most unique way out of the entire group, ripping a shirt to reveal an Oklahoma State logo on his t-shirt. McCollum is a giant tackle with a great frame at 6’6, but currently stands at just 270 pounds. He played at the right tackle position for Klein Oak last season, where the Cowboys already have a reliable option in Zach Crabtree.

Dylan Galloway, Offensive Tackle

Galloway is the centerpiece on the O-line for Coppell High School, a Texas powerhouse. “I felt like it was the best place for me,” Galloway Scout after his commitment in June. He is a 6’5, 280-pound tackle who Robert Allen said passed the eye test at a camp this past summer. He was the sixth man in a deep rotation for Coppell last season, but has already stepped up to the plate this season. He’s an under-the-radar prospect who the staff would love to be able to compete early.

Teven Jenkins, Offensive Tackle

“Another offensive tackle?!)” said everyone reading this article….

The tackle position is one of, if not the most important, position on the line. Especially at the left tackle position, which mans the blind side of the quarterback. Many of the most talented guys see time at the tackle position in high school and move across the line at the next level. Tackles require versatility and mobility, and Jenkins offers a mix of both. Jenkins is closer to playing weight than the others on this list (6’6, 296 pounds), and has already been named as the No. 1 offensive line prospect in Kansas by Scout.

Moving forward, the Cowboys will look to add at least one more offensive lineman to the 2016 recruiting class, and it’s pretty clear the top priority at this point is in-state standout Tramonda Moore, who is also being sought after by Oklahoma, Alabama, Florida State, Auburn and others.
