Stay up to date with the Pokes on Signing Day.



[Devin Wilber/PFB]

STILLWATER — It’s one of the most important days of every college football team’s year: National Signing Day.

A bevy of high school prospects are set to put pen to paper on Wednesday with 6 a.m. being the earliest Oklahoma State will add a recruit. As of Tuesday evening, OSU’s class ranks 64th nationally and 10th in the new-look Big 12, per 247Sports. The Cowboys enter signing day with 16 commits, but there could be a surprise or two.

Stay up to date with who the Cowboys sign here, as we update this post throughout the day.

Jaden Allen-Hendrix

Columbia, South Carolina / RB / 6-2, 225
Other offers: Charlotte, Chattanooga, Bryant, Charleston Southern, North Carolina A&T, Wofford, Howard and others

How a player with the measurables and senior stats of Jaden Allen-Hendrix made it under the radar this long might be one of the biggest mysteries of this signing class, but it worked out for Oklahoma State. Allen-Hendrix ran for 2,215 yards and 25 touchdowns as a senior while catching another 20 passes for 260 yards and four scores. The Cowboys offered Allen-Hendrix earlier in the month and got him onto campus for an official visit this past weekend before signing him Wednesday.

Luke Webb

Deer Park, Texas / DL / 6-4, 276 / 3⭐
Other offers: Arizona, Cal, Houston, Kansas, SMU, Washington State and other

The No. 807 player in the class, according to the 247Sports Composite ranking, Luke Webb went 9-2 with the Deer Park Deer in his senior season. Webb is a mauler on the defensive interior with a quick first step on the snap.

Landyn Cleveland

Mansfield, Texas / DB / 6-0, 183 / 3⭐
Other offers: Alabama, Oklahoma, Michigan, Texas, Washington, Arkansas, Arizona, Ole Miss and others

Landyn Cleveland was steadfast in his commitment to the Cowboys despite reported offers from Oklahoma and Alabama after his commitment. The No. 607 player in the class, Cleveland played safety and corner in his senior season at Mansfield Legacy, but expect his first look in college to be at safety. He is quick, physical and is a more-than-willing tackler, evident by the 75 total tackles in his senior season.

Caleb Hackleman

Texarkana, Texas / OL / 6-6, 280 / 3⭐
Other offers: Baylor, Texas Tech, Memphis and others

The No. 812 player in the class, Caleb Hackleman was part of an offensive line that pushed the Pleasant Grove Hawks to a 12-1 record in 2023 while averaging 44.3 points a game. Hackleman hails from the same high school that Xavier Benson and Nickolas Martin graduated from, in what has become a bit of a pipeline for the Cowboys from east Texas.

Chauncey Johnson

Lonoke, Arkansas / OL / 6-5, 290 / 3⭐
Other offers: Missouri and Arkansas State

A regional champion wrestler, Chauncey Johnson committed to the Cowboys this past summer. Johnson is listed as the No. 1,133 player in the class, per the 247Sports Composite ranking, making him the No. 12 player in Arkansas.

Armstrong Nnodim

Mesquite, Texas / DL / 6-2, 257 / 3⭐

After racking up 16 sacks and winning a district Defensive MVP as a junior, Nnodim added 13 more to earn First Team honors as a senior. Despite the slight dip in QB takedowns, Nnodim still came in 21st in sacks for the state of Texas in 2023. He is also a wrestler.

Gunnar Wilson

Melissa, Texas / LB / 6-3, 206 / 3⭐

Wilson played all over the field in high school, but he told PFB that OSU coaches see him fitting in at Sam linebacker, a position where he can show off his versatility. Wilson is the No. 1,196 player in the class. He played some linebacker, some safety and some h-back in his senior season at Melissa, as the Cardinals went 10-2.

Tre Griffiths

Keller, Texas / WR / 6-3, 200 / 3⭐
Other offers: Texas Tech, Utah, Baylor, Kansas and others

The No. 686 player in the 247Sports Composite rankings, Tre Griffiths caught 43 passes for 847 yards and eight touchdowns in his senior season, according to MaxPreps. He had four 100-yard receiving games in 2023, including a season-high 192 against Keller Central. Griffiths is oozing potential with his size, speed and his physicality and could be next in the long line of outstanding receivers to come to Oklahoma State.

Rodney Fields

Wright City / RB / 5-9, 185 / 3⭐

Rodney Fields helped Del City get to the 5A state final this past season, eclipsing 1,000 rushing yards for the second straight year. He rushed for 200 yards on just 13 carries against Midwest City, per MaxPreps. Fields was the second commitment in the Cowboys’ class, pledging to the Pokes back in January. He is the No. 902 player in the 2024 247Sports Composite rankings, which makes him the No. 9 player in Oklahoma.

David Kabongo

Roanoke, Texas / DB / 5-11, 185 / 3⭐
Other offers: Texas, Utah, Missouri, Texas Tech, Arizona State, Kansas, Indiana and others

David Kabongo was a walking highlight reel in his senior season at Byron Nelson. The Bobcats went 13-1 in a season where Kabongo had a pick-six, a punt return touchdown and a hit that sent a helmet what must’ve been about 10 feet into the Texas sky. He is the No. 944 player in the class. According to MaxPreps, Kabongo had 48 total tackles as a senior, including 12 tackles for loss and two sacks. He also had two interceptions, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery.

LaDainian Fields

Oklahoma City / CB / 6-1, 173 / 3⭐
Other offers: TCU, Kansas State, Washington, Washington State, UTSA and others

The Cowboys pulled off a late in-conference flip by adding LaDainian Fields on Signing Day. Out of Del City, Fields had been committed to TCU since August. Fields is the No. 1,283 player in the class, according to the 247Sports Composite ranking, making him the No. 17 player in the state. Fields did it all for Del City this season, playing defense, offense and returning kicks. He is the cousin of OSU running back commit Rodney Fields.

Josh Ford

Stillwater / TE / 6-6, 252 / 3⭐

Ford was the Cowboys’ first commit of the 2024 cycle. A big, playmaking tight end, Ford hauled in 22 catches for 245 yards and three scores as a senior. As a defensive end, he also added 50 tackles, 13.5 tackles for loss and 3.5 sacks.

Jonathan Agumadu

Dallas, Texas / LB / 6-2, 215 / 3⭐

Despite only moving to defense in 2022, Agumadu’s output and versatility is impressive. As a senior, he racked up 37 tackles, four tackles for loss, six sacks and three QB hurries. He also added two passes defended, three fumble recoveries and blocked a field goal.

Willie Nelson

Longview, Texas / CB / 5-10, 170 / 3⭐

Willie Nelson is a ballhawk with the ability to do something with the ball in his hands. Nelson made a huge leap in his senior season, but he was already a firm commitment to OSU. Nelson recorded six interceptions — returning two for touchdowns — to go with 50 tackles and four tackles for loss as a senior. He also was a featured return man who ran a punt in for a score as well.

Nuku Mafi

Salt Lake City / OL / 6-5, 295 / 3⭐
Other offers: Arizona State, BYU, Arizona, Cal, Utah, Nebraska, Tennessee, Washington State and others

Nuku Mafi’s recruitment has been interesting to track as of late, but it looks as if he’ll be a Cowboy after all. Mafi committed in October alongside his high school teammate, Semisi Tonga. Tonga has since flipped his commitment to Arizona State which made some wonder whether Mafi would also join the Sun Devils. Then reports started surfacing earlier this week about BYU making a late push for Mafi. Out of West High School in Salt Lake City (the same school OSU got Sesi Vailahi from last cycle), Mafi is the No. 1,048 player in the class and the No. 11 player from Utah.

Temerrick Johnson

Midlothian, Texas / EDGE/OLB / 6-3, 209 / 3⭐
Other offers: Utah, Kansas, BYU, Houston, Nebraska, Minnesota, Cal and others

Temerrick Johnson had 50 tackles, 17.5 tackles for loss and eight sacks coming off the edge for Midlothian Heritage this past season. He is the No. 875 player in the 247Sports Composite rankings, making him the No. 56 edge rusher in the class.

Maealiuaki Smith

Antelope, California / QB / 6-4, 200 / 3⭐
Other offers: BYU, Washington, Florida State, Arizona, Arizona State, Cal, Miami, Colorado and others

Smith enters Signing Day as the Cowboys’ highest-rated commit. Listed as the No. 577 player in the class, according to the 247Sports Composite ranking, Smith led Junipero Serra to a 12-1 record in 2023 with the Padres’ only loss coming to national power Mater Dei. He is the No. 36 quarterback in the class and the No. 45 player from California. What stands out most about his film is his composure and accuracy.

Jacobi Oliphant

Florissant, Missouri / CB / 6-4, 180 / 3⭐
Other offers: Wyoming, Ohio, Arkansas State, Boston College, Colorado State and others

At 6-foot-4, Jacobi Oliphant’s size sticks out as a corner. The Cowboys extended Oliphant an offer in late October before bringing him on campus for an official visit last weekend and securing his commitment on Thursday. Oliphant is listed as the No. 1,261 player in the 2024 class, making him the No. 19 player from Missouri. He had 86 tackles, three sacks, two interceptions, four fumble recoveries and returned two kicks for touchdowns as a high school senior.


Kobe Hylton

UTEP / S / 6-0, 205

Kobe Hylton made 146 total tackles and 10.5 tackles for loss in two seasons at UTEP. Hylton also had seven PBUs, four forced fumbles and a fumble recovery. Originally from Snellville, Georgia, Hylton spent time at NEO and Louisiana before making his way to UTEP.

Isaia Glass

Arizona State / OL / 6-5, 295

Isaia Glass suffered an injury and played only three games for the Sun Devils in 2023, but he was able to redshirt because of that. He started those three games at left tackle a year after starting every game during Arizona State’s 2022 season. According to PFF, Glass has allowed seven sacks in 926 snaps across the past two seasons.
