Oklahoma State’s big recruiting weekend was even bigger than we thought. In addition to a commitment from in-state lineman Bryce Bray, who chose OSU over Oklahoma, the coaching staff also pocketed a commitment from 2018 texas athlete Jaelyn Nolan, according to Scout. He held offers from Oklahoma, Houston and Texas Tech, among others before committing on Monday afternoon.

Nolan is a standout dual-threat quarterback for Brownfield High School but missed most of last season with an ACL tear.

Oklahoma State already holds a commitment from dual-threat quarterback Spencer Sanders in the 2018 class, one of the top quarterbacks in the country, so Nolan will likely switch positions in Stillwater.

In his sophomore season, Nolan completed 97 of his 159 passes, 1,311 yards and 11 touchdown passes. He also recorded 52 rushes for 320 yards and three touchdowns.

“Yes sir, I’ve committed to Oklahoma State,” Nolan told Scout on Monday. “I just felt of the schools recruiting me they were the one I liked.”

Nolan is the sixth commitment in the 2018 recruiting class, and the second this week.
