OSU Offers a Pair of Dynamic Tight Ends for 2022 Cycle

OSU looking to reload at Cowboy Back.



Oklahoma State is looking to replenish its Cowboy Back ranks with a couple of impressive tight end prospects of the future. Within a matter of minutes on Wednesday evening, two different tight ends made public their offers from OSU.

Four-star TE Donovan Green and three-star Trent McGaughey announced bids from the Cowboys via Twitter. Let’s take a quick look at each.

Donovan Green | 6-4, 210 | Class of 2022

Green is a 6-foot-4, 210-pound playmaker with 30 offers to his name — and he’s still an underclassman. That list includes the likes of Alabama, LSU, Georgia, Notre Dame, Texas, USC and others. 247Sports currently ranks Green as the No. 1 tight end out of the state of Texas, the 19th-ranked Lone Star recruit and 112th nationally.

The Cowboys are a little late to the party so Gundy and Co. are probably banking on Green being enticed by an offense that continues to improve over the next year or two and — hopefully — throws a few passes to its tight ends in the meantime.

Green hails from Dickson High School in Texas where he earned first-team all-district honors last year and was named a Max Preps Sophomore All-American. He racked up 615 receiving yards and five scores on 34 catches in 2019.

Take a look at his sophomore highlight reel.

Trent McGaughey | 6-3, 224 | Class of 2022,

McGaughey comes in just behind Green in the 247 rankings as the No. 9 TE in Texas and the 46th-ranked prospect. The Shadow Creek product measures in at 6-3 and 224 pounds — with still two years to develop until he sees a college campus.

The measurables and film are nice (see below), but there’s more to McGaughey. The three-star TE knows how to win. He’s fresh off of a Texas 5A D-I state championship and a 16-0 record last year, hauling in nine catches for 192 yards and two TDs.

And then you can tack on all of the cliches that come with being a coach’s son. His dad, Thomas McGaughey, was a former NFL defensive back and has been coaching in the NFL ranks for nearly 20 years. He currently serves as special teams coordinator for the New York Jets.

Have a peek at McGaughey’s film.

Either one of these prospects would be a welcome addition to the Pokes’ 2022 class and would a potential Day 1 impact player.

Senior Cowboy Backs Jelani Woods and Logan Carter, who return most of the snaps at tight end, will be long gone by the time either of these two would make it to campus, and it’s unclear who will take up their mantel in 2021 and beyond. So it’s a good sign that Oklahoma State is actively pursuing a couple of big names for the future of the position.
