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.
BARNETT COMMITTED TO OSU AGAIN
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.
Barnett failed to qualify academically for Arkansas, so he went to the Corsicana, Texas, junior college.
Barnett told Rivals.com that his relationship with defensive coordinator Bill Young played a role in his decision.
“I've felt that Coach Young is a good man and has always been from all the way to my senior year when I was committed to them, so we've always had a good relationship,” Barnett told the website.
One thing that might worry Cowboy fans, though, is that Barnett also told Rivals that he might take a few more official visits to other places, although he remains “100 percent” committed to OSU.
SANDERS LEADS HIS TEAM TO ANOTHER WIN
Kendall Sanders, a four-star athlete who committed to OSU in February, rushed for 200 yards as his Athens (Texas) team improved to 5-2 with a 42-21 win at Bullard on Friday.
Sanders ran for touchdowns of 99 and 10 yards in the win.
With the two touchdowns, Sanders now has 20 on the season. He needs just four more to tie his own school record, which he set last season.
