Owasso Offensive Lineman Ryker Haff Commits to Oklahoma State

‘Why would you not go to OSU?’

The Cowboys’ offensive line recruiting is on a roll.

Oklahoma State picked up a commitment from Owasso’s Ryker Haff on Wednesday night. Haff’s pledge came less than a week after former Clemson commit Jaylan Beckley committed to the Pokes. Haff is listed at 6-foot-6, 310 pounds, and he chose OSU over offers from Texas Tech, Iowa State, Minnesota, Houston, Tulsa and others. Haff made the pledge on his birthday, and he was the second 2025 prospect to announce a commitment to the Pokes on Wednesday, joining outside linebacker Kyle Keya.

Haff’s commitment comes following an official visit to Stillwater this past weekend.

“Why not Oklahoma State?” Haff told PFB. “It’s an hour and 20 minutes away, my family can always come watch me, I can always come home on the weekends if I need to, I can go to the NFL from there with Coach (Charlie) Dickey’s help — Coach (Rob) Glass getting me strong enough to go the the NFL. Why would you not go to OSU? And they’re ranked No. 15 for petroleum engineering, and that’s what I want to do.”

247Sports lists Haff as a three-star prospect and the No. 974 player in the 247Sports Composite rankings. Haff is the No. 16 prospect from the state of Oklahoma, according to those rankings.

Haff played right tackle for Owasso as a junior this past season, as the Rams went 9-3, falling to eventual state champ Bixby in the semifinals of Oklahoma’s 6A-I bracket.

“Since Bedlam I’ve really wanted to commit,” Haff said. “I knew I might have a chance of committing on the visit. I was on the photoshoot, and I was just having a really good time with Coach Dickey and (Zach) Allen.

“I was out there watching practice and everything — we do a lot of the same drills and formations and stuff that they do. They were saying I would fit in really well. I was like, I don’t see why I wouldn’t go here with everyone treating me how they treated me.”

The Cowboys didn’t sign an in-state offensive lineman in the 2024 class, bringing in Caleb Hackleman (Texarkana, Texas), Chauncey Johnson (Lonoke, Arkansas) and Nuku Mafi (Salt Lake City), but OSU did sign a pair of Oklahoma linemen in the 2023 class in Jakobe Sanders (Stillwater) and Jamison Mejia (Broken Arrow).

OSU also has an offer out to Haff’s teammate: Blake Cherry. Cherry played on the opposite side of the Rams’ line and is also a three-star recruit with offers to Arkansas, Texas A&M, Arizona State, Kansas State, Nebraska and others.

Haff’s commitment moves the Cowboys’ 2025 class to four players — joining Beckley, Keya and Idabel athlete Matrail Lopez. It moves OSU up to No. 8 in the Big 12 rankings for the cycle, but it’s still too early in the cycle to make any sweeping statements about that number, as only four Big 12 schools have more than five commitments.
