OSU Recruit Myles Jernigan Expected to Make Commitment in Next Month



Three-star linebacker Myles Jernigan is expected to make his college commitment at some point during the opening weekend of OSU’s season, he told Gabe Brooks of 247Sports.

Jernigan is a 6-3, 210-pound outside backer from South Grand Prairie in Grand Prairie, Texas. He’s deciding between Cal, OSU, Utah, Baylor, Houston, Texas Tech and Rice, though it appears to be a four-team race between Cal, OSU, Utah and Baylor.

Jernigan recently visited Cal on an unofficial basis, and did the same with OSU in late-June. He has also visited Utah, La. Tech, Baylor and Houston. His current 247Sports crystal ball gives Baylor a slight edge, though it’s important to note that his three most recent predictions have been in favor of Cal.

OSU is given an 11 percent chance to land him according to the same measuring stick, with only one expert pegging the Pokes as the landing spot.

Jernigan hasn’t set an official commitment date but said it could come anytime between Aug. 31 and Sep. 2. OSU opens its season on Aug. 30 against Missouri State.

Though OSU doesn’t appear to be in pole position for Jernigan, a familial connection could play into OSU’s favor. Jernigan’s cousin, Jayden Jernigan, a defensive tackle from Allen, Texas, is currently the second-highest rated prospect in Oklahoma State’s 2019 recruiting class.

Jernigan told Rivals recently that fit is something he’s looking into (duh), and OSU is in a good spot on that front with how they envision using him.

“They’re thinking about me as an edge or standup guy, but I know they were thinking about putting some weight on me and getting me up to around 245-pounds,” he said. “Coach (Joe Bob) Clements is a really cool guy, and with the new defensive coordinator [Jim Knowles] I am expecting to like the new defense there.”
