Oklahoma State commitment list
Oklahoma State currently has 15 non-binding verbal commitments from players in the 2013 recruiting class:
Wylie, Texas (East Wylie)
Flowery Branch, Ga.
Luke Del Rio
Denver (Valor Christian)
St. Louis, Mo. (Mary Institute Country Day)
Houston, Texas (Alief Taylor)
Tyler, Texas (John Tyler)
170, Dallas (Skyline)
Cibolo, Texas (Steele)
San Antonio (James Madison)
The 6-foot-1, 200-pound receiver caught just two passes, but both went for touchdowns as John Tyler, ranked No. 3 in Class 4A, defeated Class 5A Lufkin 35-21.
Ross finished with 118 receiving yards, including an 80-yarder to save a busted play on the first snap of the game. He added a 38-yard TD catch in the fourth quarter to cap John Tyler's scoring.
Ross is one of three wide receivers — maybe four, depending on what position athlete Jerel Morrow of Emporia, Kan., ends up playing — currently committed to the Cowboys. Counting Morrow, all four potential wideouts are considered four-star recruits by Rivals.com.
Morrow, 5-foot-11, 180 pounds, had three receptions for 61 yards and a TD in Emporia's 27-21 win over Shawnee Heights.
WORKHORSE PERFORMANCE FROM WEBSTER
While his team cycled through quarterbacks, OSU running back commit Corion Webster provided Atlanta, Texas, with its most consistent offensive production in a 31-17 loss to Gilmer Friday night.
Atlanta's first two quarterbacks were 0-for-8 passing, allowing Gilmer to load up to stop Webster. However, when the team's third QB, Chase Musgrove provided something of a passing threat, it opened up space for Webster, who ultimately finished with 138 yards on 23 carries, including a 54-yard score.
