OSU football: Cowboys get commitment from running back Corion Webster

Weeks after losing an important backfield piece, the Oklahoma State football team has added a potential replacement to its 2013 recruiting class.

Corion Webster, a lightning quick and highly recruited running back from Atlanta, Texas, committed to the Cowboys on Wednesday, as first reported by GoPokes.com.

Webster held offers from a number of big schools, including TCU, Arkansas and Texas A&M. He's ranked as a three-star all-purpose back, 12th in the state of Texas, according to Rivals.

“I committed to Oklahoma State,” Webster told the website. “I just wanted to get committed because I was tired of all the questions.”

Webster, at 5-foot-11, 185-pounds, adds some eventual depth at a position that just lost Herschel Sims, a talented back who was viewed by many as the future starter before he was dismissed earlier this month for a violation of team rules, stemming from a legal incident with a teammate.

As a junior at Atlanta High School, Webster had 220 carries for 1,865 yards and 24 touchdowns.

He is the 10th commitment in the 2013 class and the first running back.
