Oklahoma State safeties coach Dan Hammerschmidt is cleaning up in the 2024 class, and he could be on his way to securing another commitment.

Three-star safety David Kabongo cut his list to five on Friday: Oklahoma State, Kansas, Indiana, SMU and UTSA. A three-star prospect, Kabongo is the No. 705 player in the 2024 cycle and also has offers to Texas, Texas Tech, Utah, Arizona State, Missouri and others.

Listed at 5-foot-11, 175 pounds, Kabongo plays his high school ball at Byron Nelson High in Trophy Club, Texas. Byron Nelson went 11-2 in 2022, making it to the Regional round of the Texas 6A-D2 state playoffs. Kabongo had 64 total tackles, including two tackles for loss, according to MaxPreps. He also had a pair of interceptions, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.

Kabongo told 247Sports he planned on announcing a commitment in June after taking official visits to Kansas (June 9), Oklahoma State (June 15) and Indiana (June 23).

“The new DC Bryan Nardo, he came by my practice a couple of times,” Kabongo told 247Sports. “He was impressed with what he saw. I went there for the first time back in early April. I was impressed with everything I saw from the tempo in practice to how everything is coached. Meeting with the safeties coach Dan Hammerschmidt, I liked his personality and got to sit down in the meeting room and talk a little ball with him. I can just see that he’s someone I can relate to and I like the Cowboy defense.”

Two of the seven players OSU has committed in the 2024 class are safeties in Landyn Cleveland and Willie Nelson. OSU’s 2024 class ranks 30th nationally and third in the Big 12.
