Oklahoma State is hoping the most successful year in school history will result in better recruiting and is off to a good start in 2013 after picking up the first commitment of the class from Tyler (Texas) wide receiver Fred Ross on Saturday.
"Oklahoma State was always my favorite, and since I came back for the Junior Day I just needed to talk to my momma about it," Ross told Scout. "I did and I was ready to commit and be a Cowboy."
The 6-foot-1, 180-pound receiver also held offers from Baylor, Missouri and West Virginia among others. Ross follows in the footsteps of his teammate Eric Davis, who signed as part of Oklahoma State's 2012 class.
"That helps because I know those guys, and I know that guys from my school have done well at OSU," Ross said.
Last season as a junior, the talented receiver hauled in 99 catches for 1,335 yards and 21 total touchdowns.
