Could Oklahoma State pursue Ringling's Jackson Dillon?
Oklahoma State’s 2013 recruiting class lost a defensive end on Wednesday, when Ogbonnia Okoronkwo flipped his commitment to Oklahoma, which could be painful for the Cowboys.
Defensive end is a position where they were already working hard, hoping to build depth for next season.
While the Cowboys are likely to try to add from the junior-college ranks most immediately, Okoronkwo’s departure could also boost the Cowboys’ interest in a local prospect, Jackson Dillon from Class A Ringling, a Memphis commit.
OSU and Tulsa have stayed in contact with the 6-foot-6, 215-pound senior, who plays running back and outside linebacker for Ringling, but projects as a defensive end at the next level.
Dillon wouldn’t solve the depth issue for 2013, and he doesn’t have an OSU offer yet, but he’s an intriguing project because of his speed, athletic ability and long frame.
Dillon was at Boone Pickens Stadium Saturday playing in the Class A state championship game, where Ringling defeated Wynnewood 39-12. He rushed for 133 yards and two touchdowns, and had a 22-yard reception.
