Carl Albert defensive back Tre’ Porter decided to be a Texas Tech Red Raider instead of an OSU Cowboy earlier today.
While the Cowboys would have loved to have Porter, I don’t view this as a huge disappointment for the Cowboys for a couple of reasons.
(1) OSU has as many as seven current commitments who could end up playing defensive back. If there is one position the Cowboys are stacked at it would be DB. Two of those may end up at the Star back i.e. Andre Sexton’s spot, but that still leaves five guys who may end up playing DB in Stillwater.
(2) They already have a very solid safety group in Stillwater and three of the four safeties fighting for playing time are sophomores (Victor Johnson (above), Johnny Thomas and Markelle Martin). When you’re talking about redshirting Daytawion Lowe, I think you have to feel pretty good about your talent at the safety spot.
So while getting Porter would have been nice, the Cowboys will survive without him.
