Oklahoma State picked up its 26th commitment of the 2014 class Friday, as Springfield (Mo.) Lighthouse Christian Academy tight end Jordan Frazier switched his commitment from Illinois to the Cowboys.
I have nothing but the greatest respect for Illini nation and the staff, but I've had to make a family decision to commit to OSU.

Frazier, at 6-5 and 230 pounds, is rated a two-star prospect by Rivals. The rest of his offers primarily came from smaller schools: Indiana, Florida Atlantic, Idaho, Missouri State and Liberty.
But let’s back up. Yes, the Cowboys have secured a commitment from a tight end, a position that virtually disappeared with OSU’s Air Raid spread offense but started to resurface down the stretch in 2013.
The Cowboys even ran some two-tight looks against Baylor, using Zac Veatch and Jeremy Seaton at the position.
Frazier is bigger and taller than Blake Jackson (6-3, 235), who played tight end in junior college but moved to inside receiver at OSU.
