Saturday saw two Cowboys commit.
OSU’s 2024 recruiting class now has 10 commitments after adding Melissa, Texas, linebacker Gunnar Wilson and Lonoke, Arkansas, offensive lineman Chauncey Johnson.
Three-star Wilson visited OSU on June 16 and committed a week later. The 6-foot-2, 210-pound linebacker, rated 119th in the class of 2024, selected OSU over Arkansas State, Army, North Texas, UTSA, and Louisiana Tech.
Johnson committed two days after his official visit over Arkansas State and Missouri offers. Johnson, 6-4, 295 pounds, was the Cowboys’ second offensive line commitment in 2024.
Here are OSU’s remaining 2024 pledges.
The Cowboys’ top recruit is three-star safety Cleveland. In April, the 6-foot, 185-pound Mansfield, Texas, prospect choose OSU over more than 30 colleges, including Auburn, Michigan, Nebraska, Penn State, Texas, and others. 247Sports ranks Cleveland as the 51st-best safety in the class.
Three-star linebacker Boardley ran back at Pleasant Grove (Texas) High School. He picked the Cowboys over Arkansas, Auburn, Baylor, Duke, LSU, and other institutions. Boardley, 6-foot, 190 pounds, raced track in high school and is fast enough for Bryan Nardo’s defense.
Griffiths is the only 2024 wide receiver. Another Keller, Texas, high school track standout, the 6-3, 205-pound prospect had over 800 receiving yards last season. OSU beat Boston College, Utah, Wisconsin, and others.
Nelson is one of three three-star Cowboys safety commits. Nelson, 5-9, 170 pounds, played safety for Longview (Texas) High School last season and was ranked No. 61 by 247Sports. Colorado, OU, SMU, and others offered.
Kabongo, like Nelson, had five interceptions last season. Kansas, Arizona State, Missouri, Texas, Utah, and others offered the 5-11, 180-pound safety.
247Sports ranks Hackleman as the highest-ranked offensive tackle in OSU’s 2024 class and 47th in the nation. He and Boardely came from Pleasant Grove, which also produced linebackers Xavier Benson and Nickolas Martin. Baylor, Memphis, Texas Tech, and others offered the 6-6, 275-pound prospect.
Southeast (Oklahoma City) running back Fields is one of two in-state recruits. He scored 22 touchdowns last season. 247Sports ranks the 5-9, 187-pound back as the eighth-best prospect in the state.
Ford is Stillwater’s sole tight end commitment. Ford was mostly employed as a blocker, but the 6-5, 230-pound tight end scored three touchdowns for the Pioneers on their way to a state title last season.
