OSU football: 4-star running Deondrick Glass picks Cowboys over Alabama, Texas

Oklahoma State’s 2019 recruiting class added another four-star athlete on Monday.

Deondrick Glass, a running back from Katy, Texas, announced he was committing to the Cowboys during halftime of the Blue-Grey All-American Bowl. The all-time leading rusher in Katy history was emotional when picking OSU, speaking about his grandmother who passed away last February.

His brother selected the orange OSU hat after hovering his hand above the Alabama hat. Glass picked the Cowboys over the Crimson Tide and Texas. He thanked OSU coach Mike Gundy and running backs coach John Wozniak for their support during recruiting process, as well.

He is the 12th-ranked running back in the country and the highest-rated recruit in OSU’s 2019 class.

At 5-foot-11, 200 pounds, Glass had one promise for OSU fans: “Let’s go get a national championship, and I wanna win the Heisman next year as a true freshman. Go Pokes.”

He can sign Feb. 6 and will join Chuba Hubbard, LD Brown, Dezmon Jackson and Jahmyl Jeter in the OSU running back room next season. He also helps fill the spots that Justice Hill and J.D. King vacated. Hill declared for the NFL Draft while King transferred to Georgia Southern.

His commitment moved OSU to the fifth-best class in the Big 12 and 40th nationally.
