And that's enough to keep elite offensive prospects like Treadwell intrigued.
Direction of the class
Here are five players who signal the direction of Oklahoma State's 2013 recruiting class:
Fred Ross, WR, Tyler, Texas (John Tyler): One of three four-star receiver recruits according to Rivals.com, the group signals the Cowboys' continued emphasis on getting top talent at the offensive skill positions — and they aren't finished, with other prime athletes still in their sights.
Corion Webster, RB, Atlanta, Texas: Not as big as Joseph Randle, but cut from the same mold as an all-purpose back, showing OSU's desire to have versatile running backs.
Sam Wren, DE, Palestine, Texas (Arizona Western CC): Seeking immediate depth at defensive end, the Cowboys snagged Wren and early high school graduate Naim Mustafaa, who are already on campus to go through spring workouts.
Zachary Crabtree, OL, Mansfield, Texas: At 6-foot-7, Crabtree is the tallest of OSU's five O-line prospects — but barely. Offensive line coach Joe Wickline put together a class full of tall and physical blockers.
Tre Flowers, S, Converse, Texas (Judson): Flowers was the third commit added at safety, a position where the Cowboys stand to lose several players after the 2013 season, so building young depth was a strong focus.
