And Norman North’s John Kolar, generally considered a three-star quarterback, has always been perceived as a sure riser, having burst into the picture last season after taking over for injured David Cornwell, an Alabama signee.
ESPN.com’s recruiting rankings show OSU with three Top 100 prospects — more than any other Big 12 school — in Jones at No. 50, Lane No. 73 and Kolar No. 82.
Texas and Texas Tech, the only other conference schools owning a commitment in the Top 100, have two each.
So at least for now, this Cowboys’ class projects a clear shine.
Remember, OSU must be selective in this class, with fewer scholarships to give because to a small senior class. So the strong early news, even if it’s a gloss applied by the recruiting analysts, suggests Cowboys coaches have selected good ones.
