Oklahoma State has four defensive end commitments in its class of 2012 — and five if you count Broken Arrow tight end Zac Veatch, who has said he expects to play both ways.

But none has been committed to OSU longer than Pflugerville, Texas' Victor Irokansi, who pledged to the Cowboys in late July.

He verbally committed to Colorado earlier that month, but the three-star defensive end switched one day after receiving an offer from Oklahoma State.

Since then, Irokansi has made two trips to Stillwater and has been one of the Cowboys' more solid commitments in this class.

Irokansi's primary recruiter has been linebackers coach Glenn Spencer.

The 6-foot-4, 230-pound Irokansi runs a 4.6 in the 40-yard dash.

His high school coach, Chip Killian, told Scout.com that Irokansi's biggest strength is his intensity.

“His motor runs extremely hot; he's going to be a very disruptive force as a defensive player to any kind of offense, whether it's run-based or a pass-based offense,” Killian said.
