STILLWATER – Oklahoma State’s 2019 signing day is nearly complete.

After the early signing period, The Cowboys signed 20 recruits in its new class, and more could be on the way.

By 9 a.m. Wednesday, 19 commits had signed, and for the second season in a row, the highest-rated recruit sent in his national letter of intent first.

Grayson Boomer, a four-star tight end from Collinsville, was the first player to submit his letter of intent for the 2019 signing class. Boomer is one of three Oklahoma players who signed, along with Edmond Santa Fe’s Trace Ford and Booker T. Washington’s Demarco Jones, Jr.

Gundy praised Ford, saying he noticed him on a baseball field in the fall.

“Well I like him because I went and watched him play high school baseball last year,” Gundy said, “and I saw him run a fly ball down in left field, dive and catch it, and steal two bases. At 225 pounds. He’s a football, basketball and baseball guy.”

Jones, Jr. was the teammate of Dax Hill, running back Justice Hill’s younger brother. Hill, who is a top-10 recruit in the country, signed with Michigan on Wednesday.

OSU signed two junior college players in running back Dezmon Jackson and defensive tackle Sione Asi.

Offensively, the Cowboys signed four linemen, one quarterback, one running back, one wide receiver and one Cowboy back. They remain in the running for a couple more skill players, including running back Deondrick Glass.

Defensively, OSU signed six linemen, three interior and three ends, two linebackers and three defensive backs.

Gundy also signed specialist Tom Hutton, who is a 28-year-old Australian punter. He comes from the same kicking academy as former Texas and current Seahawks’ punter Michael Dickson.

“He works in a paper mill, five or six days a week, 10 hours day,” Gundy said. “I’m sure he’ll be thrilled to be in our organization where we will do everything for him.”

Overall, OSU’s recruiting class was ranked 48th in the country, according to 247Sports. Its class is sixth in the Big 12. OSU’s 2018 class was ranked 34th, and this season is behind Virginia, Indiana and Wake Forest.
