National Signing Day tracker: OSU football recruits, announcements, 2020 class rankings
College football's early signing period for the 2020 recruiting class begins Wednesday and runs through Friday. Coach Mike Gundy and the Cowboys have the nation's 43rd-ranked class, according to Rivals.com.
Follow along as the class starts to roll in.
Cade Bennett, OL, 6-4, 300, Scottsdale, Arizona (Notre Dame Prep)
A powerful interior blocker, Bennett was drawn to OSU through a strong connection with offensive line coach Charlie Dickey.
Korie Black, CB, 6-1, 160, Waco, Texas (Connally)
A lanky cornerback built like current OSU standout A.J. Green, Black is a physical player who shows the ability to react to the ball in the air.
Mason Cobb, LB, 6-1, 220, Provo, Utah (Provo)
A Signing Day addition to the Cowboys’ recruiting class, Cobb was a big target who took his official visit last weekend. He chose OSU over Arizona, Louisville and others. He’s coming off a huge senior season with 118 tackles, three sacks, three interceptions, two forced fumbles and two fumbles recovered.
Shane Illingworth, QB, 6-6, 225, Norco, California
Illingworth threw for over 3,000 yards with 40 touchdowns and just two interceptions. He plans to enroll in January.
Tyren Irby, DE, 6-3, 235, Walls, Mississippi (Northwestern Miss. CC)
Physical and fast, Irby is an ideal fit for the edge rusher position that became a staple of the defense this season with Brock Martin and Trace Ford.
Grant Mahon, DE/DT, 6-4, 270, Denton, Texas (Guyer)
With OSU’s move to a three-man front, Mahon is a good fit with his agility on the edge and the strength to face multiple blockers on the inside.
Zach Middleton, S, 5-9, 188, Tulsa (Bishop Kelley)
Though he missed the season with an injury, Middleton is a strong and athletic safety prospect who likes to hit.
Monroe Mills, OL, 6-7, 280, Columbia, Missouri (Tolton Catholic)
An overpowering left tackle who the Cowboys plucked from out of Missouri’s backyard.
Rashod Owens, RB/WR, 6-2, 200, San Antonio (Roosevelt)
A highly gifted, multi-sport athlete, Owens has excelled at running back and receiver during his high school career, and could play either at OSU.
Matt Polk, WR, 6-4, 210, Scottsdale, Arizona (Saguaro)
A big-play outside receiver similar to former Cowboy Marcel Ateman, Polk has the size and physicality to overmatch cornerbacks and the speed to get behind them.
Brennan Presley, WR, 5-8, 155, Bixby
You rarely read Presley’s name without the word “electric” attached to it. His size raises questions, but his skill and performance answer them.
Trent Pullen, OL, 6-3, 270, Waco, Texas (Connally)
A high school tackle who likely moves inside at OSU, Pullen is physical at the point of attack. One of two players from Waco Connally, along with cornerback Korie Black.
Jordan Reagan, CB, 6-2, 178, Bixby
Another long-bodied cornerback prospect in the class, adding depth at a position that has three seniors on the depth chart for the bowl game.
Jeff Roberson, LB, 6-2, 215, Choctaw
Played a variety of positions for the Yellowjackets over his career, but is a strong fit at linebacker with his closing speed on ball-carriers and physical tackling style.
Eli Russ, OL, 6-6, 290, Ardmore (Plainview)
The first player committed in the class, Russ is the gem of a highly regarded group of offensive line recruits.
Nick Session, S, 6-0, 187, Salt Lake City, Utah (East)
Reliable in pass coverage and not afraid to be physical coming into the box in run support.
Quinton Stewart, TE, 6-4, 235, Salina, Kansas (Central)
Athletic pass-catcher who often lines up as a receiver, but can get nasty in the trenches as a more traditional tight end. Also played defensive end in high school.
Cole Thompson, LB, 6-2, 205, Norman
Known for his speed and jarring tackles, Thompson is ideally suited for the linebacker position in the defense Jim Knowles is building.
