The Cowboys have 17 verbal commitments in all, with one each from Missouri, Kansas, Colorado and Georgia. They have targeted prospects in Illinois, Florida and a variety of other states.

Offensive lineman Jesse Robinson, 6-foot-6, 275 pounds, of L.D. Bell High School in Hurst, Texas, is the latest addition.

According to Rivals.com, the Cowboys don't have any offers out to uncommitted in-state players.
