The Reload: OSU Target Backs Away from Georgia Pledge, New Five-Star Offer

Published

While most everyone I know was off work for Christmas, Oklahoma State coach Josh Henson was working towards the future with a new offer out the door to a budding 2019 prospect.

On Monday, 2019 offensive tackle Justin Osborne of Flower Mound, Texas, announced that Henson had offered, adding to a list that now includes Baylor, Ole Miss, TCU, Oklahoma, Michigan and others.

Osborne is a three-star prospect who stands at a beefy 6-foot-4, 251-pounds.

Osborne has made visits to Oklahoma and Texas and with his star rising, will likely garner plenty of attention from now into the spring before he even begins sifting through his options. As of now, though, the Sooners are the favorite in the 247Sports Crystal Ball.

Henson also made another Christmas offer to an even bigger name: Five-star offensive tackle Kenyon Green out of Humble, Texas. Green is a 6-foot-5, 315-pound thumper from Atascocita (say that five times fast!).

Green has garnered 17 offers from the likes of Oregon, Florida State, Alabama, TCU and others. A former LSU commit, he’s one of the highest-rated 2019 prospects who recently hopped back on the market and said he wants to take visits and survey the landscape before making a final decision.

Another interesting development this week came in the form of a de-commitment from Class of 2018 safety Aaron Brule.

The three-star talent out of Louisiana backed away from his Georgia pledge, citing reasons beyond his control — in other words, Georgia seems to have squeezed him out of its class, leaving him to hop back on the market and see where he can land ahead of the February signing day.

Brule is a 6-foot-1, 205-pound prospect who hails from Archbishop Rummel in Metairie, La., and was one of the lower-rated Bulldogs commits. Oklahoma State offered Brule in mid-December along with TCU, and right now, it appears he’s leaning TCU.

Oklahoma State signed a big safety class already for 2018 and landed Arkansas commit Sean Michael Flanagan late, but he could be a hybrid star backer for OSU. He’s set to make an OV to OSU in January, so keep an eye on him as OSU fills out its class ahead of February.
