The Reload: J.D. King Locked in with OSU, Five-Star Sets Commitment Date, Greenwood, Morton Hearing from Others



The Reload is PFB’s recruiting recap, catching you up to speed on the latest news and rumors surrounding Oklahoma State recruiting, with an ear to the ground for what to expect in the future.

J.D. King Talks Oklahoma State Commitment

2017 running back J.D. King recently talked with Scout about his commitment to OSU and more about his recruitment in a video. Check out what he had to say about all things OSU:

“It kind of just felt like home. They made me feel better than other teams made me feel. They talked about school work, living, they fixed up one of the dorms to make it feel like I was already there. So they made me feel like a priority and a big target.”

As far as Stillwater, he said he felt like home in the community. “It kind of felt like I’ve been there before but I hadn’t.” He tells Scout analyst Chad Simmons that he’s 100% locked in with OSU. And other schools are still coming after him, but he says he’s not giving them much time. Running backs coach Marcus Arroyo is King’s primary recruiter.

TCU, Arizona State Coming Hard for OSU Pledge LaMarcus Morton

One of the biggest commitments no one is talking much about in the 2017 class, LaMarcus Morton, is committed to play safety for OSU but is still hearing from Arizona State and TCU on the recruiting trail.

After a 252-yard, 3 TD week 1 performance, he’s more than on the map and other schools may be pushing for him at receiver.

“(TCU and Arizona State) are both good schools,” Morton said recently about the two schools trying to steal his commitment. “And they both like to pass the ball a lot so it’d be appealing for any receiver to attend either of the schools.”

Morton is still committed but does say he may be interested in taking official visits elsewhere as well — TCU and AZ State likely to be two destinations.

WR Shamond Greenwood Hearing from Others, Appears Locked in with OSU

Another pledge still hearing from other schools in receiver pledge Shamond Greenwood, who goes by “LC”. LC says (via he hears from other schools “every day”, particularly Kansas, Colorado State, and Utah.

Me, Jelani Woods and the twins (Tylan and Tracin Wallace) are all trying to go to a game together,” he said. “I’m trying to make it to every home game that I can.”

Greenwood is locked in and although things are subject to change, he seems like he will stay solid on his pledge.
