Three-star defensive tackle Enoch Jackson has trimmed Oklahoma State from his final schools. The Mansfield Legacy product, who had recently included the Pokes in his top six, released a final three on Sunday.
The Pokes were edged out in the cut by Clemson, Arkansas and Texas Tech.

Jackson was a long-time defensive tackle target whom OSU had hoped to reel in from Texas, a run-stuffer a la Mote Maile. At 6-foot, 290-pounds, he was a District 10-5A Defensive MVP for Mansfield Legacy, but previously played for Stillwater High School before moving to Texas.
Despite Jackson kicking OSU to the curb, OSU is in a good spot at defensive tackle. It’s possible other targets emerge down the line, but the Pokes are sitting pretty with commitments from Jayden Jernigan and Xavier Ross. Jernigan is the second-highest-rated prospect in OSU’s 2019 class.
