New offensive line coach Charlie Dickey gets his fourth commitment of the 2020 class.

The Cowboys added their 14th commit to the 2020 class Friday, and it’s a big one — literally.

Monroe Mills is a 6-foot-7, 291-pound offensive tackle who committed to Oklahoma State over offers from Missouri, Indiana, Kansas, Iowa State and others. It’s impressive that OSU’s new offensive line coach Charlie Dickey was able to secure Mills’ commitment given that Mills is out of Father Tolton in Columbia, Missouri, which is about a five-minute drive from Missouri’s campus.

“I really like how it’s family oriented,” Mills told PFB. “I love their fan base. I love the walk that they have, it’s pretty cool. And the alums seem to really love Oklahoma State football, and they seem to be making something pretty great there.”

Mills is a three-star prospect and ranked 129th nationally among offensive tackles. He is the fourth offensive lineman to commit to OSU in the 2020 cycle, joining guards Eli Russ and Trent Pullen and fellow tackle Cade Bennett. Mills told PFB that he’s gotten to text with the other committed linemen a little bit and that he is looking forward to getting in contact with them more.

“Coach Dickey, he seems like a really good coach,” Mills said. “He seems like he really cares about his players a lot. He seems to really connect with Coach (Mike) Gundy really well, too. I think that he’d be a really good person to be coached by.”

Mills’ commitment moves OSU up to 39th nationally and fifth in the Big 12, ahead of Kansas State.
