OSU recruiting notebook: Broken Arrow's Zac Veatch a versatile athlete

Oklahoma State got a versatile athlete that can play a number of positions when Broken Arrow's Zac Veatch committed.

Veatch, who plays tight end and defensive end for the Tigers, committed to OSU on Sept. 28.

Veatch said the intention right now is for him to play tight end as a freshman, but that he could be moved to another position, including center.

“He's 6-4, he's about 255 right now, and he can move,” Broken Arrow coach Steve Spavital said. “I like their thinking on that. He's really a pretty versatile athlete.

“He's got that ability to play anywhere. ... I'm very proud. (OSU is) my alma mater.”

Veatch and the Tigers are currently Class 6A's No. 1-ranked team after Thursday's 56-7 win at Southmoore. Broken Arrow returns to the city area this Thursday to face Norman.


Oklahoma State picked up a commitment from a familiar name last week.

Former Tulsa Washington standout Calvin Barnett, a three-star defensive tackle currently playing at Navarro College, was committed to the Cowboys out of high school until a signing day switch to Arkansas.
