Friday Night Highlights: Mafi, Tonga Join Cowboys’ Class, Stillwater’s Win Streak Continues

After a huge win on the weekend, the Cowboys got a huge boon to their 2024 class Sunday night with the additions of Nuku Mafi and Semisi Tonga out of West High School in Salt Lake City.

Here is a look at how Oklahoma State’s 2024 commits are doing in their senior seasons of high school ball, with stats and highlights provided when available.

Nuku Mafi, Semisi Tonga / OL / Salt Lake City West (6-3) / Utah

The Cowboys’ two newest commits played on Wednesday, according to MaxPreps, where West High School picked up a 31-24 win against Brighton. After starting the year 0-2, the West Panthers have now won six of their past seven.

Behind Mafi and Tonga, West’s quarterback threw for 200 yards and wasn’t sacked, and the Panthers’ rushing attack ran for 293 yards on seven yards a carry. Mafi was credited with four pancake blocks and six tackles in the game.
