Recruiting Reset: Who OSU Is Targeting to Cap off 2019 Class

A ? at who is left on OSU’s wish list in 2019



Oklahoma State has received 17 verbal commitments in the 2019 recruiting cycle, but with a month-plus before early signing day in December, there are plenty of targets to eye as the Pokes polish off their class.

Let’s reset the big board with names to watch as the days wind down on this cycle.

Deondrick Glass | 5-11, 200 | Running Back

Glass made an official visit to OSU for homecoming and met with the GOAT during his short stint. That can’t hurt. He remains OSU’s biggest, most realistic target at running back — a position of major need to close the class out. He’s the only running back prospect right now that is on the radar with an offer, though in-state standout Thomas Grayson may be a viable backup plan.

Langston Anderson | 6-1, 192 | Wide Receiver

Like Glass for the running back position, Anderson is the biggest and most realistic target for OSU at wide receiver. The 6-foot-1 standout from Midlothian, Texas, has 20+ offers from the likes of Arizona State, Baylor, TCU, OSU and Ole Miss, but the Pokes are squarely in the mix of his top schools. He tells me he plans to sign on Dec. 19, so a commitment — likely on signing day or just ahead of it is — is imminent.

Kennedy Lewis | 6-3, 190 | Wide Receiver

OSU recruited Kennedy Lewis for months before he committed to TCU back in June. But an offer from Florida in August and an official to Texas in October led him to decommit from the Horned Frogs in mid-October. I suspect the Gators and Longhorns are the most likely spots, but the odds of OSU rekindling its interest is higher than zero — especially if Anderson ends up staying close to home.

Drage Nugent | 6-2, 275 | Offensive Lineman

I would be capital S Stunned if OSU took another offensive lineman in this class. Josh Henson has already reeled in four commitments this cycle to add to a five-man offensive line class last year. But if he decided to tack on one more, Highlands Ranch (Colorado) center Drake Nugent could be one to monitor. Henson offered him months ago, so it’s not out of the question.

Kevon Glenn | 6-1, 220 | Inside Linebacker

OSU added a big hitter to add to its future second level back in September with the commitment of Dallas Skyline star Kamryn Farrar, giving OSU a second backer in the 2019 class with Na’Drian Dizadare also committed. But both are listed as true outside-backers. If OSU opts to bring in a more natural inside backer, Glenn, a 6-1, 220 pound prospect from Hampton, Georgia fits the billing. He has 45+ offers, but OSU is among the biggest to his name along with Kentucky, Indiana, Georgia Tech and others.

Ni’Kendrick Carter| 6-3, 220 | Outside Linebacker

Carter is another of the linebackers built to play on the outside (though I wouldn’t rule out a move to the inside at college.) He’s a 6-3, 230-pounder from Many High School in Louisiana, whom OSU offered back in May. He decommitted from SMU in late October and is looking for a landing spot.
