National Signing Day tracker: Oklahoma State football recruits, announcements, 2021 class rankings

College football's early signing period for the 2021 recruiting class begins Wednesday and runs through Friday. Coach Mike Gundy and the Cowboys entered the day with the nation's No. 46-ranked class, according to

We will update this throughout the day as the signings come in.

As always there is a theme to each season's National Signing Day, and the Cowboys went with 1980s gaming classic Tecmo Bowl for its look. Props for that.

Silas Barr, OL, 6-5, 275, Pottsboro, Texas

An under-the-radar find by offensive line coach Charlie Dickey, Barr will need a redshirt year to develop, but is an athletic blocker.

De’Kelvion Beamon, CB, 6-2, 185, Shreveport, Louisiana (Huntington)

An unexpected signing day addition, Beamon reclassified from the 2022 class as he works to graduate a year early and join the Cowboys next season.

Jaden Bray, WR, 6-3, 190, Norman

Naturally gifted athlete who only began to focus on football in his junior season, but his skills are obvious.

Caleb Etienne, OL, 6-9, 320, New Orleans (Butler C.C.)

Big in size and big in talent, Etienne was a crucial pickup who will have the chance to compete for a starting tackle job immediately.

Raymond Gay, CB, 6-0, 170, Red Oak, Texas

An all-around athlete who was recruited by some schools on offense, but the Cowboys see him as an ideal fit at cornerback.

Blaine Green, WR, 6-2, 210, Allen, Texas

Good size and great production for a powerhouse program at Allen, Texas.

Bryson Green, WR, 6-2, 210, Allen, Texas

Landing Bryson Green, and his twin brother, Blaine, was perhaps the biggest score of the recruiting season for the Cowboys.

Austin Jarrard, TE, 6-3, 245, El Dorado Hills, Calif. (American River C.C.)

Jarrard offers good athletic ability and route-running skills, along with the possibility to add immediate depth at tight end.

Aden Kelley, DT, 6-3, 295, Thomas

Dominant at the small-school level, and has the strength and agility to make the jump to major-college football. 

Nathan Latu, DE, 6-4, 240, Salt Lake City (Snow College)

Twin brother Cameron is a tight end at Alabama. Nathan was a late find in the recruiting class, but offers good size and speed as an edge rusher.

Nick Martin, LB, 6-0, 200, Texarkana, Texas (Pleasant Grove)

Martin is a top-100 recruit in the state of Texas who plays fast and physical from his outside linebacker spot. 

Jaden Nixon, RB, 5-10, 170, Frisco, Texas (Lone Star)

The son of former Cowboy Jeroid Johnson, Nixon is a small but speedy back who can be a weapon as a receiver out of the backfield as well.

Logan Nobles, OL, 6-7, 275, Jenks

An intelligent player who was recruited by Ivy League schools and has a prototypical tackle body.

Collin Oliver, LB/DE, 6-2, 220, Edmond (Santa Fe)

One of the highest rated players in the class, Oliver is an ideal fit for the versatile edge rusher position in the OSU defense.

Lyric Rawls, CB, 6-1, 200, Marshall, Texas

A long, athletic safety with good ball skills who picked the Pokes over several other Power 5 programs.

John Paul Richardson, WR, 6-0, 180, Missouri City, Texas (Ridge Point)

Cut from the Dillon Stoner mold, Richardson is a good route runner, with the speed and reliable hands needed out of a slot receiver.

Cam Smith, CB, 6-2, 175, Little Elm, Texas (Braswell)

Recruited as a receiver by many schools, Smith will play safety at OSU, where his lanky frame will remind Cowboy fans of Tre Flowers.

Makale Smith, CB, 6-1, 175, Midwest City

Lightning-fast basketball standout who turned his focus to football after returning to the sport for his junior season.

Donovan Stephens, LB, 6-1, 210, Del City

A physical tackler who is always pursuing the ball, Stephens was recruited by some as a safety, but fits the mold of outside linebacker at OSU.

Jaylen Warren, RB, 5-8, 220, Salt Lake City (Utah State)

The Cowboys were in the market for another running back in the class, and landed a veteran in Warren, a transfer from Utah State who rushed for 265 yards and three touchdowns on 39 carries in three games before entering the transfer portal in November.

Ty Williams, S, 6-2, 190, Muskogee

Rated by as the top recruit in the class, Williams will provide depth at a safety position that will be full of upperclassmen next season.
