Sawyer Goram-Welch Withdraws OSU Commitment following Texas Offer

Sawyer Goram-Welch decommits from the Pokes.



It looks as if a historic blue-blood has again poached the Pokes.

Sawyer Goram-Welch announced via Twitter on Saturday that he is decommitting from Oklahoma State. Goram-Welch is a three-star defensive tackle prospect out of Longview, Texas, who just so happened to announce a Texas offer Monday.

Oklahoma State offered the 6-foot-4, 263-pound Goram-Welch on Aug. 1. He took an official visit to Stillwater Sept. 6 before committing on Oct. 15. He was also in Stillwater for the Kansas game Nov. 16, but when Texas comes calling, a lot of people listen no matter how things seem to be trending on the field in Austin.

Goram-Welch will take an official visit to Austin on Dec. 13, according the 247Sports. That would’ve been quite the no-no for him under an OSU commitment. In the summer, former OSU commit Myles Price took a visit to Texas Tech and it resulted in OSU pulling his offer.

So, maybe there is hope from the OSU faithful that Goram-Welch doesn’t think Texas is all that it’s hyped up to be after visiting and comes back to OSU, but it looks as if the writing is on the wall.

Goram-Welch’s departure leaves OSU with two defensive line pledges in its 2020 class: Grant Mahon and junior college product Tyren Irby.

The Cowboys aren’t in dire need in the position group, as among defensive linemen on their roster, Mike Scott is the only senior.

If Goram-Welch does end up being a Longhorn, this wouldn’t be the first time UT has poached from Stillwater. Here is a story Mike Gundy told about Marcus Keyes ahead of last weekend’s Bedlam game.

“It’s interesting, we talk about recruiting all the time, and we signed him on signing day,” Gundy said of Keyes. “We lost somebody. I’m guessing probably Texas took one of our players, which is pretty common, and we went down and grabbed Marcus. The big debate about whether he’s gonna be big enough or whatever, but he met all the other criteria: he’s intelligent, can process information, momma raised him right, plays hard, tough. He comes in here, and he’s basically a four-year starter, and nobody recruited him.”

Here’s to OSU’s staff going out and finding another well-raised, intelligent, hard-worker who never says a word.
