OSU Recruiting: A Look at Five New Recruits the Pokes are Targeting

A look at five recent offers the OSU staff has made.



Oklahoma State’s 2020 recruiting class is all but finalized and the coaching staff of the Cowboys has already laid groundwork for 2021, 2022, 2023 and 2024. Yes, 2024 — high school freshmen!

That groundwork has been laid in the form of contact and offers made in recent months, but it really picked up this week with a flurry of new offers to start the new year. Here’s a look at the five most recent players to pick up offers.

1. Barrett Carter, 6-1, 210, LB, Class of 2021: Carter is a blue-chipper from Georgia who has 44 (!) scholarship offers. Even though he’s not set to sign for another year, OSU may be late to the party here. Alabama, Clemson, Arkansas, Auburn and a whole host of top programs have offered. OSU, OU and Kansas are the only schools from the Big 12 to extend him an offer.

2. DeSean Buckner, 5-11, 189, ATH, Class of 2020: This one perked me up — a late-cycle offer to a RB — but it’s believed Buckner’s offer is to play as a safety at OSU. An unheralded recruit, he played multiple positions on both sides of the ball at White Hall in Arkansas.

3. Reuben Owens, 5-11, 175, RB, Class of 2023: Owens refers to himself as “The Black Unicorn.” And if it’s one thing I want in my life, it’s an OSU running back who refers to himself as “The Black Unicorn.” OSU is the first Big 12 program and the fifth overall to offer him joining LSU, UTSA, Oregon State and Arkansas.

4. Lyrik Rawls, 6-0, 170, S, Class of 2021: Rawls is a 6-foot safety from Texas who has already drawn offers from Missouri, SMU, Houston, Arkansas, Texas Tech and OSU. His recruitment went cold in recent months but OSU ends his offer-less drought of several months with the first of 2020.

5. Bryan Allen Jr., 5-11, 180, S, Class of 2022: Aledo always produces D1 talent and Allen Jr. appears to be one of the up-and-coming players in the 2022 crop from the school. Allen, a 5-11 safety, already has offers from Baylor, Houston and Illinois State.
