OSU football: Norman's Jaden Bray commits to Cowboys

NORMAN — One varsity football season is all Norman wide receiver Jaden Bray needed to turn heads.

On Saturday, Bray committed to Oklahoma State, going from an unknown talent to star in less than a year.

The 6-foot-3, 190-pound three-star recruit caught 40 passes for 936 yards and 11 touchdowns last season. He joined the team in the offseason after spending his first two years as a basketball star. 

Bray was ranked No. 12 on The Oklahoman’s Super 30 rankings.

His rapid development as a receiver led to offers from Arkansas, Baylor, Iowa State, Kansas, Kansas State, North Texas and SMU among others.

Bray is the Cowboys’ sixth commitment in the 2021 class and third in state, joining Muskogee’s Ty Williams and Edmond Santa Fe’s Collin Oliver. Bray is the first receiver in the class.
