The Cowboys didn’t pin down their 2024 quarterback commit until November, but things could be moving a bit quicker in the 2025 cycle.

Utah passer Jett Niu has scheduled an official visit to Oklahoma State for April 26, according to 247Sports’ Blair Angulo. Listed at 6-foot-2, 185 pounds, Niu announced an Oklahoma State offer last month, as the Cowboys became the second Power Five program to offer him behind Washington State — if you still consider the Cougars part of a power conference.

Niu hails from Lehi High School in Utah. He led the Pioneers to a 10-3 record as a junior in 2023, throwing for 2,812 yards and 31 touchdowns, according to MaxPreps. He also scored three times on the ground.

A three-star recruit, according to 247Sports and On3, Niu also holds offers to Marshall, Utah State, Arkansas State, Old Dominion and Appalachian State. On3 lists Niu as the No. 10 player from the state of Utah, a state the Cowboys have moved more and more into even before BYU and Utah joined the Big 12. The Cowboys took offensive lineman Nuku Mafi from the state in the 2024 class. The year before that, the Cowboys signed running back Sesi Vailahi from Utah.

Quarterbacks are usually cornerstones to a recruiting class, and more often than not, they commit earlier than most positions. Going back to the 2020 class, OSU picked up a Shane Illingworth commitment in May 2019. Class of 2022 quarterback Garret Rangel pledged to the Pokes in February 2021, and 2023 quarterback Zane Flores picked the Pokes in April 2022. So, it came as a bit of a surprise that OSU got about a month from the early signing period opening without a quarterback pledge, but the Pokes ended up getting their guy regardless, as Maealiuaki Smith committed in November.

Thus far, the Cowboys have one commitment in their 2025 class: Idabel athlete Matrail Lopez.
