Some Class of 2019 Prospects OSU Should Feel Confident About



We’re still a long way off from the initial signing period for the class of 2019 in December, but that doesn’t mean that same players aren’t leaning one way or the other.

As of now, OSU has four commits in their 2019 class including TE Grayson Boomer, CB Demarco Jones, DE Kody Walterscheid, and P Tom Hutton. According to the experts over at 247Sports, there are a few other recruits who you are likely to see commit to Oklahoma State.

Marcus Alexander

Oklahoma State is the overwhelming favorite at this point to land the 6-foot-2, 295 pound offensive guard from Sunnyvale, Texas. Marcus Alexander made an unofficial visit to Stillwater back in April, after which all predictions turned orange. That includes by Zachary Tanner, who covers Texas Tech for 247Sports, another team Alexander is reportedly warm on. Along with the Cowboys and Red Raiders, the three-star recruit has offers from Colorado State, Southern Miss, North Texas, Texas State, Wyoming, and UTSA.

Z’Core Brooks

There may only be two predictions so far, but both have three-star defensive end Z’Core Brooks landing with Oklahoma State. Brooks, who plays for Woodrow Wilson High in Dallas, has an offer from OSU, as well as Baylor, Purdue, SMU, UTSA, and FIU. Brooks had a solid junior season totaling 43 tackles including 10 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks, plus two pass breakups and a fumble recovery.

OSU was his first Power-5 offer, something he said himself he really appreciated. “It was my first offer,” Brooks told 247Sports. “It meant a lot. It meant that they really cared.”

I think OSU remains in the lead with SMU gaining some traction after a visit in April. From what I’ve watched, he’s got some talent and would make a nice addition to the class, though he’ll need to bulk up.

Xavier Ross

With five predictions all in favor of OSU, the Cowboys are the overwhelming favorites to land talented three-star defensive tackle Xavier Ross. The 6-foot-3, 285-pound DT out of Cedar Hill, Texas also has offers from Purdue, Air Force, Indiana, and FIU.

Ross has already made two visits to Stillwater recently — one for junior day back in march and another for the spring game last month.

While Ross may not seem like a big deal, he’s a Power 5-level defensive lineman from a Cedar Hill program that is usually loaded with talent. He would be a very nice pickup for the Cowboys.

Javasia Brunson

While there are five predictions for Oklahoma State in defensive end Javasia Brunson’s favor, it’s the three-star recruit’s own words that prove OSU is in the driver’s seat for his commitment.

“They’re my No. 1 right now,” Brunson told 247Sports. “They want me to come visit. They’re looking out for me and showing a whole bunch of love.”

Brunson plans to make an official visit to Oklahoma State this summer. Along with OSU, he has offers from SMU, Southern Miss, Nevada, UTEP, Liberty, and South Florida where he also plans to make a visit. But nothing is set in stone, as Brunson says he’s leaving his options open for other visits. He’s also generating a lot of interest from Arkansas though he has yet to receive an offer from the Razorbacks.

This feels like one where if OSU continues to make a strong push, they’re likely to land him. Here’s what Brunson can bring to the table. Last season he had 25 tackles, three sacks, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery. You can check out his highlight reel here.

Kievie Rose

While Oklahoma State is the favorite for three-star defensive end Keivie Rose, it is with only one prediction. While I realize that doesn’t’ guarantee anything, it’s worth including him for a couple of reasons. For one, Oklahoma State is one of only two Power 5 schools who have offered him so far, joining fellow Big 12 school Kansas. The other seven D-I offers are from Memphis, Louisiana Tech, SMU, Arkansas State, Florida Atlantic, North Texas, and Tulane.

Secondly, Rose battled through injury for much of his junior season, but still finished with 16 tackles, two sacks, and nine quarterback pressures. If he stays healthy through his senior season, it’s likely his stock will rise. Feel free to check out his junior year highlights for yourself.

There are a few other guys worth noting that, while OSU is not the leading favorite to land their commitment, are at least in the hunt.

Dax Hill

The No. 1 guy on every Oklahoma State fans’ wish list. Right now the experts give OSU a 20 percent chance to land the younger brother of running back Justice Hill, with OU the big favorite. OSU is still in the mix, but I would guess so are Clemson, Alabama, Michigan, Ohio State, and many of the numerous other big name programs that have offered him.

Grant Gunnell

For a time, that Oklahoma State was the favorite to land Gunnell. However, he canceled his visit to OSU’s spring game to go up to Columbus, Ohio. Now the Cowboys have fallen behind Ohio State and LSU. There’s still a good while to go until signing day, but at this point I’d be surprised if Gunnell didn’t end up a Buckeye.
