Under the Radar Junior College Defensive Lineman Brien Taylor Announces Oklahoma State Offer

Did the Cowboys find their next diamond in the rough?

The Cowboys’ staff might have found its next diamond in the rough.

Brien Taylor, a defense lineman at Blinn College, announced an Oklahoma State offer on Thursday night.

Listed as a 6-foot-6, 270-pound freshman on Blinn’s 2022 roster, Taylor had 20 tackles last season including 7.5 tackles for loss and 1.5 sacks in seven games.

Oklahoma State appears to be Taylor’s first offer — it’s the only one he has tweeted out anyway. And he doesn’t even yet have a profile on the major recruiting services. Regardless, he doesn’t look like a guy who has one offer and no star rating.

He included a picture Tyler Lacy in his offer post, which seems like a decent comparison for Taylor. Lacy spent his time in Stillwater as a defensive end/defensive tackle tweener. Lacy was listed at 6-4, 285 on last season’s roster. He fits the mold of big defensive ends the Cowboys have on their current roster in guys like Anthony Goodlow (6-5, 283), Nathan Latu (6-4, 265) and Kody Walterscheid (6-6, 281).

The Cowboys have 13 players committed in their 2023 class with two true defensive linemen in Luke Webb and Armstrong Nnodim. Eligibility is still a little hard to keep track of in the post-pandemic era, but Oklahoma State’s 2023 roster lists two defensive linemen as super seniors (Goodlow and Latu). Meanwhile Walterscheid, Isreal Isuman-Hundley, Collin Clay and Xavier Ross are all listed as redshirt seniors.
