STILLWATER — Jarrell Owens was like many folks in the metro Sunday morning.
He was tweeting about the snow. That he liked it.
He's also pretty fond of Oklahoma State.
Owens, a three-star defensive end from Palestine, Texas, became another late — and somewhat surprising — grab for OSU's 2014 class, as he flipped from TCU to the Cowboys following an official visit over the weekend.
“Just decommited from TCU! I appreciate and Respect all that TCU has done! Im fully committing to OSU #GoPokes” Owens tweeted Sunday morning.
His pledge was the second consecutive official visit weekend that directly resulted in a commitment for the Cowboys. And it's just the latest interesting development for an OSU class that was nearly full when the calendar flipped to 2014.
Owens, who sports a 6-foot-4, 235-pound frame, is the third prospect who was committed to another school before switching to the Cowboys within the last month.
First came Jordan Frazier, a two-star player from Lighthouse Christian, a homeschool team in Springfield (Mo.) whose commitment reaffirms the Cowboys' plan to continue to reintroduce the tight end into their Air Raid Spread offense. Then came three-star Tucker (Ga.) linebacker/safety Kirk Tucker, who OSU quickly snatched following an official visit last week after he was not admitted to Stanford.
There have been surprise visitors in the last two weeks such as Keller's (Texas) Sione Teuhema, a three-star defensive end currently committed to Texas, and New Orleans St. Augustine's Joseph Paul, a two-star offensive lineman currently committed to Oklahoma. Or Owasso receiver John Cole Neph, who passed on a scholarship offer from Texas-San Antonio to join OSU as a preferred walk-on.
Now there's Owens' decision, coupled with the news reported by Rivals that the Cowboys have pulled their offer from Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College defensive lineman Jeremiah Ledbetter because it does not appear he will earn his associate degree.
So what else can we expect as we zoom toward Signing Day?
The Cowboys still appear to be in play for Kenny Young, a four-star linebacker from River Ridge (La.) John Curtis, and Steven Parker, a four-star safety from Jenks. But front-runners to land either prospect? Unlikely.
So Owens could very well be the final piece of the Cowboys' 2014 class.
But with plenty of intriguing moments already down the stretch — not to mention the sometimes-fickle minds and emotions of teenage prospects — don't count out another surprise or two before everyone fires up the fax machines.
