Oklahoma State Gets Commitment from Wagoner Star Rodriguez

Oklahoma State has added a commitment from Wagoner senior quarterback Malcom Rodriguez, who committed to OSU just hours after announcing an offer had been given to him on twitter.

Head coach Mike Gundy threw out the big news of his commitment on twitter with his classic Pistols Firing tweet.

Rodriguez is a two-way star for Wagoner, who plays quarterback and defensive back. He accepted a scholarship to play safety at OSU, according to the Tulsa World’s Mike Brown.

During his Wagoner career, he passed for 6,000 yards, rushed for 2,313 and was responsible for an astounding 112 touchdowns over three seasons on varsity for the Bulldogs. As a defensive back, he has totaled 7 interceptions and 226 tackles. In addition, he is a state-champion wrestler. So his physicality on the mat clearly translates nicely to the football field.

He’s a gritty, hard-hitting safety with good size at 5-foot-11 and 195-pounds. He covers a lot of space on the back end, and shows a very good field awareness and ability to read plays, one of the most important tools a safety can possess. He chose OSU over Wyoming, his only other Div. I offer. But it appears OSU has been keeping tabs on him as he stayed under wraps, and now they’ve stolen one of the state’s best sleeper recruits from a powerhouse football program.
