OSU football recruiting: Cowboys safety commitment Jordan Sterns will provide more than depth
You might say Jordan Sterns is “all in” with the Cowboys.
That was the message all the way back in the summer, after Sterns and his family visited Oklahoma State and the already committed Texas prep star told GoPokes.com “I'm 300 percent (committed).”
But then, that's the way Sterns played, too, as a standout at Cibolo Steele, in the San Antonio area.
A safety prospect for the Cowboys, Sterns played offense, defense and special teams in high school, scoring touchdowns in every phase as a senior: running for five scores, returning a fumble and two interceptions for touchdowns and returning two punt returns for TDs.
And there was more: 58 tackles and six total interceptions.
The Cowboys made it a focus to not only upgrade depth at safety, but bring in competition.
Sterns should provide that. At 6-foot-1 and 195 pounds, he's physically ready. Billed as a physical, attacking defender, his style fits the part as well.
Sterns, a four-star rated recruit by Scout.com, racked up honors following a strong senior season: Defensive MVP in District 28-5A; first team on the All-Super Team of the San Antonio-Express News – as a defensive back and return specialist – and a spot on Dave Campbell's All-Texas High School Team, with a bonus nod as the state's “Most Versatile” player.
