Emmanuel Ogbah is so excited to sign with Oklahoma State, he's going to send his paperwork in as early as he can Wednesday.

“I'm gonna sign at 7:01 a.m. so I can fax my paper back to the school right then,” Ogbah said.

Ogbah, a 6-foot-4, 235 defensive end from Richmond, Texas, committed to OSU in early September. He took an official visit to Houston last weekend, but will stick with the Cowboys.

Ogbah, who finished his senior season with 57 tackles (47 unassisted), six sacks and two forced fumbles, said he was disappointed when assistant coach Joe DeForest, his primary recruiter, left for West Virginia, but that he said he stays in regular contact with defensive coordinator Bill Young.

Ogbah said he originally thought he was going to redshirt for the 2012 season, but that now coaches are telling him he might get early playing time as a true freshman.
