OSU’s 2022 Class Remains in Top 20 after Fourth of July Fireworks

The United States’ Independence Day was a huge day for football recruiting.

Prospects all over the country made their college decisions this weekend, and one of those prospects chose Oklahoma State. Three-star corner Dylahn McKinney picked the Cowboys over offers from Arizona, Missouri, Arkansas, Baylor and others.

McKinney is the No. 668 player in the cycle, according to 247Sports Composite, making him the No. 64 corner in the class.

All of the commitments made for some movement in the national rankings, but OSU was able to stay in the Top 20 thanks to McKinney’s pledge.

The Cowboys’ class ranks fourth in the Big 12. West Virginia is next in the conference standings, but the Mountaineers’ class ranks 40th nationally. TCU brings up the rear in the Big 12, as the Horned Frogs have only four commits to this point. TCU’s class ranks 75th in the country.

As always, there is a quality/quantity question about recruiting. OSU’s per player average of 88.18 ranks third in the Big 12, ahead of Baylor (86) but behind OU (91.69) and Texas (90.72). Kansas State is worst in that metric in the league, as the Wildcats’ nine-player class averages to 83.78.

Offensive lineman Bray Lynch is the next OSU target scheduled to make a commitment. He announced last week he would pick among OSU, Duke and Indiana on Friday. As things stand now, if Lynch were to chose OSU, the Cowboys’ 2022 class would move up to 16th nationally, just ahead of Baylor.
