Oklahoma State wrapped up a key recruiting weekend with a commitment from three-star safety Kirk Tucker of Tucker (Ga.) Tucker.

But, according to Rivals, two prospects currently committed to other schools were also in Stillwater at the same time in New Orleans St. Augustine offensive lineman Joseph Paul (Oklahoma) and Keller (Texas) Keller defensive end Sione Tuehema (Texas).

Paul, a two-star prospect, pledged to the Sooners earlier this month and also has offers from California, Florida State, Mississippi State, Texas, Texas A&M and UCLA. Tuehema, a three-star prospect and U.S. Army All-American, committed to the Longhorns in May and also has offers from Baylor, Iowa, LSU, Oklahoma, Oregon State, TCU, Utah, Washington State.

Four-star linebacker Kenny Young, who is ranked in Rivals’ top 100 overall prospects, also visited this past weekend. Jenks safety and fellow Rivals 100 prospect Steven Parker was originally scheduled to visit, as well, but a basketball conflict prevented that from happening.
