Recruiting Roundup: New Offers and a PWO Commitment

New targets in 2022 and 2023, plus a new PWO.

Oklahoma State’s coaching staff has been hard at it on the recruiting trail of late with new offers to 2022 prospects and 2023 prospects, plus at least two new commitments: one a preferred walk-on and another that’s yet-to-be-announced.

Let’s take a look at the latest on the trail with those offers and that new addition.

New offers

Alvin Ebosele, Class of 2022, OL: A 6-foot-5, 280-pound prospect from Copppell, Texas, Ebosele’s had one heckuva month. OSU is the fourth Division I program to offer this month alone (and all have come within the last week.) Good sign here that OL is going to be a priority this cycle.

Hunter Erb, Class of 2022, OL: Erb is another 2022 tackle from Texas who, like Ebosele, is just absolutely blowing up right now on the recruiting trail. The 6-foot-6, 305-pound prospect now has 15 offers (and counting) with USC, Oregon, TCU, OSU, Texas A&M and Houston joining the mix in just the last week. Baylor, Kansas and Ole Miss also in the mix.

Jaquaize Pettaway, Class of 2023, WR: OSU is the first Big 12 program and second Power Five to offer Pettaway, a 5-11, 170-pound pass catcher from the Houston area. He went for over 1,000 receiving yards last season as a sophomore and has some serious speed that makes him a dynamic downfield threat. (His 1,004 yards receiving came on just 55 receptions, which is Tylan-esque in efficiency.)

Trey Wilson, Class of 2023, DE: Oklahoma State is the first — and thus far, the only — program to have offered a scholarship to 2023 DE Trey Wilson. Probably won’t be his last. 6-4, 230-pound pass-rusher with good size who earned Newcomer of the Year honors in his district last season as a sophomore at Lakeview Centennial.

Kaleb James, Class of 2023, DE: An unranked recruit from Texas, but not for long, Kaleb James is soon to be the flavor of the month in college football recruiting. As a sophomore last season he had 10 sacks, 16 tackles for loss and 57 tackles for Nolan Catholic in the Fort Worth area. A 6-4, 235-pound DE/OLB, he’s going to be a hot commodity in short order. OSU, Tech and Baylor already in the mix here.

Deldrick Madison, Class of 2023, CB: One of two recent cornerback offers, Madison, a 6-foot, 170-pound talent from Duncanville, is another of the fast-rising prospects on this list. In fact, OU offered shortly after OSU did the same. Mizzou and Michigan have already done the same.

Jayden Rowe, Class of 2023, CB: Tulsa Union’s produced a ton of great talent over the years, and Jayden Rowe appears to be next in line. The 6-3, 210-pound corner has great size and length and has already garnered offers from the likes of OU, Texas Tech, Iowa State, Baylor, Arkansas and Tulsa … this month alone.

New commitment

Earlier this week, Mike Gundy tweeted the bat signal hinting that a commitment was imminent. “It’s a great time to be a Cowboy! #LetsRide22,” he said. That news was followed shortly by a commitment Thursday from Tulsa Edison DE Holden Martinson. However, the two aren’t connected — meaning OSU is expecting another commitment in short order — and we’re told it is indeed a big one.

As for Martinson, he’s a 2021 talent who had offers from Abilene Christian and Central Missouri State but turned it down for a chance to be a preferred walk-on for OSU. Nice little under the radar grab for a developmental prospect who could add some scout team depth and, perhaps in time, become a contributor.
