Defensive lineman Eric Davis was the first recruit that Oklahoma State plucked away from Texas A&M, as Davis switched his commitment from the Aggies to the Cowboys in September.

He told The Oklahoman then that the reason for the switch was because of OSU's four-man front, the same system he played in high school. A&M played a three-man front under former defensive coordinator Tim Deruyter.

“I thought it would be a better fit for me at Oklahoma State,” Davis said in September.

Davis, a 6-foot-3, 240-pound prospect, is rated the No. 35 strongside defensive end and the No. 75 player in Texas. He was an honorable mention All-State selection for John Tyler while playing defensive tackle this past season.

Davis was one of OSU's first offers last February. He is one of four defensive end commits in the class, joining Trace Clark, Emmanuel Ogbah and Victor Irokansi. OSU loses both 2011 starters at that position in Jamie Blatnick and Richetti Jones.
