Earlier in the morning and in the afternoon his coaches at school said he had not made a decision, but after his game on Friday night, Waxahachie, Texas, offensive guard Marlon Winn let the cat out of the bag. Well, he let the Cowboy out of the bag, we mean.
“That’s right, I’m committed to Oklahoma State,” Winn, who is 6-foot-5 and 280 pounds, said. “How’d you all know that I committed? I hadn’t told too many people. But it’s true, I committed to Oklahoma State this weekend.”
It was pretty evident for the past few weeks that Winn was leaning heavily toward OSU over offers from Arizona, Baylor, Missouri and SMU. He had lined up a December 3 official visit and talked glowingly about the Pokes.
“First, it is my dad’s alma mater,” Winn said. “Second, Oklahoma State is the perfect place to study meteorology. I have always been interested in how the weather works. And third, they have a good football team.
“Oklahoma State told me to keep Dec. 3 open. That is when they are having their top recruits in.”
And with OSU’s reputation of building good offensive line recruits, Winn could be lumped into that top recruit category.
