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:
Ashaad Mabry, San Antonio (Texas) Macarthur
Position: Defensive tackle
Ht, Wt: 6-3, 295
Vitals (via rivals.com): 5.05 in 40-yard dash; Bench 360; Squat 550;
Picked OSU over... Texas A&M, Baylor, Virginia, SMU
Pros: A very athletic big man with big-time potential. Has the size to contribute immediately if he arrives in Stillwater with the will and passion to make an immediate impact.
Cons: Doesn’t play hard every second of every play.
Expect an impact in… 2012. If he wants to, he has the talent to play immediately. He will just have to realize he has the talent to make an immediate impact, if he does, he could play in 2011, if not his impact will be felt in 2012 or 2013.
Here is Mabry in action (This is not his highlight video, he is No. 75, not the linebacker highlighted with a arrow on each play)
