The Cowboys picked up commitment No. 3 in their 2025 recruiting class Wednesday afternoon.

Kyle Keya, a 6-foot-4, 205-pound defensive prospect out of Kapaun Mt. Carmel Catholic in Wichita, pledged to Oklahoma State over offers from Iowa State, Kansas and Marshall.

Keya is the No. 907 player in the 2025 class, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings. Those same rankings list him as the No. 65 edge rusher in the country and the No. 9 player from the state of Kansas. He is a three-star recruit, according to 247Sports and Rivals.

Keya made his commitment after an official visit earlier this month. Oklahoma State was the first program to offer Keya, doing so in September. He shared photos on his Twitter as far back as the Cowboys’ game against Iowa State in 2022 that he attended. In many of Keya’s posts regarding OSU, he has mentioned linebackers coach Joe Bob Clements, which means that’s likely where OSU views him as a college player.

Keya’s Crusaders went 11-2 this past season, making it all the way to the Kansas 5A state title game. He primarily played in a standup outside linebacker role as a junior.

Keya becomes the third player to commit to the Cowboys this cycle and the first defensive prospect the Cowboys have picked up. He joins Idabel wide receiver Matrail Lopez and offensive lineman Jaylan Beckley out of Texas. With this being prime official visit season, the Cowboys could go on a run of commitments over the coming weeks.
