OSU Becomes First Division-I School to Offer Stillwater Tight End Josh Ford

OSU is officially in the mix for a local rising star.

Just days after helping Stillwater High to a state championship at the 6A-II level over Choctaw in front of OSU head coach Mike Gundy, Stillwater product Josh Ford on Sunday reported a new offer — his first from a Division-I school — from the OSU program just down the road. The Cowboys came in hot with the offer after Stillwater’s perfect season ended in dream fashion with a 26-21 win over Choctaw. It was Stillwater’s first state title since 1967.

Ford is a 2024 talent who lists himself as both a tight end, defensive end and linebacker standing at 6-foot-5, 228 pounds. He was a favorite target of quarterback Gage Gundy, Mike Gundy’s son, from the tight end position, where it appears OSU is recruiting him at given his nod here to “Coach Mac” — who is Jason McEndoo, OSU’s tight ends coach.

OSU has been very selective in who it has made offers to in the 2024 class thus far, and it does not yet have a commitment in that cycle. Ford is the second tight end to get an offer from the Pokes that also includes four-star prospect Jaden Reddell from Missouri.
