Former Rice Commit Armstrong Nnodim Commits to Oklahoma State

Oh, and he’s a wrestler.

Armstrong Nnodim went to Oklahoma State’s camp, got his first Power Five offer and will now be a Cowboy all in the matter of a few weeks.

Formerly a Rice commit, Nnodim announced an offer to Oklahoma State on June 14, two weeks before announcing a commitment to the Pokes. He was a standout at OSU’s camp, earning him the offer. A 6-foot-2, 270-pound defensive lineman from Mesquite, Texas, Nnodim is listed as a three-star prospect and ranked 1,159th nationally, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.

Nnodim plays at Horn High School. The Jaguars went 8-3 in Nnodim’s junior season where he had 69 tackles, 22 tackles for loss, 16 sacks, two interceptions (both of which he returned for touchdowns), two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery.

He was also a state qualifier in wrestling, something Mike Gundy likely loves. He placed third at the UIL 6A State Championship at heavyweight.

Nnodim committed to Rice in February, but the offers kept rolling in. He also has offers to UTSA, Memphis, Texas State, Louisiana Tech, Arkansas State and others.

He becomes the 11th commit in the Cowboys’ 2024 class and is the first defensive lineman after in-state standout Will Smith decommitted from the Cowboys last month. With Nnodim, the Cowboys class shoots up to No. 44 nationally, ahead of TCU.
