    NORMAN — It’s been quite the whirlwind for Norman North quarterback John Kolar since Oct. 4. He’s gone from a wide receiver to starting quarterback and now to an Oklahoma State commitment, capping a crazy period for the 6-foot-4 passer. “It’s been unbelievable, to be honest,” Kolar said. “I’m just thankful the way everything has happened.” Kolar announced his commitment to the Cowboys on his Twitter page Wednesday morning, becoming the first verbal commitment for OSU in the 2015 recruiting class. “Just committed to play football at Oklahoma State University.

    Dylan Harding wasn't sure this was possible. “I always kind of doubted myself up until I got my first offer,” Harding said. There were plenty more after that first one, but it didn't take long to make a decision once the right one came in for the Jenks safety. Wednesday, Harding officially signed with Oklahoma State after committing to the Cowboys in late July. He still spends plenty of time thinking about that first one, though. A couple weeks after the Trojans won the 2012 state championship, Harding was called into the office at school, where he was met by Tulsa assistant Denver Johnson. “I'm about to change your life,” Johnson told Harding before officially extending the offer.

    DESOTO, Texas — Chris Lacy was relieved to finally sign Wednesday morning with Oklahoma State, and now he's ready to get to work with the Cowboys. “It's the same offense we run here at DeSoto, so I'll fit right in and catch a lot of passes,” Lacy said. The 6-foot-2, 191-pound wide receiver committed to Oklahoma State in early August, choosing the Cowboys over offers from Arizona State, Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska and Northwestern, among others. “I love it,” said Lacy's mother Karen. “He loves it. We like Stillwater, a small, college town and a family atmosphere. And of course, they like to throw the ball, so that's really important. They offer engineering and that's what he wants to do.

Seems like a fit for Stillwater, as Mucha is one of two offensive linemen planning to sign with Oklahoma State Wednesday. With a 6-6, 255-pound frame to go along with strength and athleticism, Mucha is projected to play tackle for the Cowboys. After multiple visits to campus and a strong performance at an OSU satellite camp near Houston, former offensive line coach Joe Wickline offered Mucha a scholarship.

    Josh Mabin committed to Oklahoma State because they stuck with him. After being the first school to offer Mabin a scholarship, Cowboys defensive coordinator Glen Spencer continued to recruit Mabin despite a knee injury. “A few years ago I had just finished half a season after a knee injury and he stuck with me,” Mabin said. “He didn't give up on me, he kept in touch with me for three years. I felt like Oklahoma State was the best fit for me academically and for football.” Overall, Mabin got 12 offers from Division I schools, but he told them once he committed to Oklahoma State that his decision was made. “It's a great program,” Mabin said. “That's a big reputation to uphold.

    Add Trey Carter to the list of Louisiana natives headed to Oklahoma State, albeit via Dallas, Texas. Carter moved to Dallas the summer before his senior year from Shreveport, La. The 6-foot-4 defensive end wasn't heavily recruited prior to the move to Dallas, but playing football for a big school in Dallas can be good for a big talent like Carter, who was an All-District selection in Shreveport. Carter stood out in Dallas, earning Co-Defensive MVP in his district and the offers started to roll in. Just two weeks after finishing his senior season at L.G. Pinkston High School, Carter committed to Oklahoma State. Carter arrived from Shreveport, La., right before the start of two-a-days for L.G. Pinkston's football squad.
