Joe Randle: An unwavering confidence, desire to be a Cowboy

WICHITA, Kan. — One unofficial visit to Oklahoma State was all it took for Joe Randle to be sold on the Cowboys. The Wichita Southeast running back watched OSU beat Missouri on Oct. 17 and committed to the Cowboys that weekend.

He didn't take any more trips. He didn't waver. From that day forward, Randle was a Cowboy.

"I had planned to visit Kansas, Iowa, Missouri and other places," Randle said. "But I didn't want to go anywhere else.

"When I said I committed to OSU that weekend they beat Missouri, I felt like it was the perfect fit."

Randle finalized his intention on Wednesday, signing his letter of intent to play at OSU early in the morning before holding a signing ceremony at Southeast High in the afternoon.

A versatile player, Randle could be a great fit for new offensive coordinator Dana Holgorsen and his system. A four-star recruit on Rivals.com and Scout.com, Randle is a slashing runner with excellent vision and size who can excel catching the ball.
