Translation: he's considering other options.
While Del Rio told the website that he's still committed to OSU, he took a visit to Oregon State last weekend and said he's also interested in other schools.
“I'm doing my homework right now,” Del Rio told Scout. “I'm still committed to Oklahoma State, but there are some other schools, including Oregon State, that are making a strong case to me.
“I still want to take a few more visits, but I would rather keep that confidential right now in terms of talking about the schools I'm interested in. I just want to make sure I'm doing the right thing, and I figure it's better to do that now than wait until closer to signing day.”
Del Rio, the son of NFL assistant coach Jack Del Rio, has ties to OSU offensive coordinator Todd Monken, who worked with the dad with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
A standout with Valor Christian in the Denver area, Luke Del Rio committed to the Cowboys in May.
With Del Rio now not so committed, expect the Cowboys to engage interest in other quarterback prospects.
One new intriguing name to watch is Elbert Speed, a quarterback and wide receiver prospect out of North Crowley High in Fort Worth.
SINGLETON FAMILIAR WITH HORNED FROGS
TCU comes into Saturday's game against Oklahoma State leading the Big 12 and ranking seventh in the nation in rushing defense, allowing just 92 yards on the ground per game and 3.13 yards per carry.
That's no news to OSU running backs coach Jemal Singleton, though. He's got plenty of experience matching up with Gary Patterson's defense, both as a player and a coach.
