Chelf's wild journey at quarterback ended with being named to the All-Big 12 second team in 2013. Moore, when healthy, was one of the Cowboys' best offensive playmakers as a big, physical option at inside and outside receiver. Mitchell and Rogers were underrated pieces of the OSU defense.
The guy with the weirdest journey is Bowie.
First, he needed to go the junior college route before returning to OSU to contribute in 2011. Then, after putting himself in position to start at left tackle in 2012, he was dismissed for violating team rules and wound up at Northeastern State. Last week, he became a Super Bowl champ as a member of the Seattle Seahawks.
Two-star recruits: Mike Eargle, DB; Parker Graham, OL; Michael Harrison, WR; Andrew McGee, DB; Charlie Moore, QB; Ryan Robinson, DE
The verdict: This is where OSU's ability to develop players particularly shines.
McGee and Graham both evolved into All-Big 12 performers. Robinson and Moore (who switched to receiver) both became starters.
No-star recruits: Levy Adcock, OL; Dameron Fooks, WR
The verdict: Is Adcock the biggest recruiting steal during Gundy's tenure?
The Northeastern Oklahoma A&M Junior College product developed into an All-American as a key cog on OSU's line during the 2011 Big 12 title run.
Some will argue Brandon Weeden for this title, but remember, he was a walk-on, not a signee.
