With 26 current commitments, OSU has done most of the hard work for this year’s signing class with the coaching staff trying to cement their current commitments and beginning to turn their eyes toward the Class of 2012. With signing day approaching, I will finish taking a closer look at this group of future Cowboys:

Miketavius Jones, Galena Park (Texas) North Shore

Position: Cornerback

Ht, Wt: 5-10, 157

Vitals (via scout.com): 4.5 in 40-yard dash

Picked OSU over… Baylor, Houston, Kansas, Rice

Pros: Instinctive with natural coverage and ball skills. Despite weighing 160 pounds, Jones doesn’t hesitate to be physical and contribute in the run game.

Cons: Will have to put on weight to handle the pounding of a Big 12 schedule.

Expect an impact in… 2011. Depth at the cornerback position is a concern so Jones will be given every opportunity to play his way out of a redshirt season.

Here’s a look at Jones in action:
