OSU football recruiting: Cowboys' gameday atmosphere led Zach Crabtree to Stillwater

“Before I knew it, at the end of my junior year, I started getting calls (from college coaches),” Crabtree said. “That was always a dream of mine. Now, here we are, I guess. It's awesome.”

At OSU, Crabtree will transition from a run-heavy offense he played for in high school to OSU's Air Raid spread attack. But he feels that's a good switch for him, as pass blocking is his strength.

And he'll get to share one semester with Jacob, who is scheduled to graduate in December.

“He was big on me going (to OSU),” Crabtree said. “He was kind of helping pull me that way. It'll be awesome.

“We're close, and it'll be a fun thing for him to kind of show me around and help me figure it out. He'll be there for a little bit of guidance.”
