Tyler (Texas) Lee has become a Division I football factory. With four players already committed to play football on the next level, the Raiders have now added a fifth to the commitment list. This time it’s from it’s star tight end.
“Brandon Pettigrew committed to Oklahoma State last night,” said Lee coach Mike Owens. “Brandon has really become a very hot commodity with the college coaches. He was coming off a knee injury as a junior, but has really played his way into a special prospect as a senior.”
A special prospect that is 6-foot-6 and 230 pounds, which means even though he is listed as a tight end, he could also project as an offensive lineman on the next level.

“The possibilities are endless with Brandon,” Owens said. “He is a very good blocker and has great ability to make a big catch when you need it. His size is probably the biggest thing that stands out about him.”
Pettigrew is a two-star prospect and joins fellow teammate Martel Van Zant on the OSU commitment list. Speaking of Van Zant, there has been speculation that the three-star safety is re-thinking his pledge to the Cowboys.
“I heard those rumors too and have been asked about them,” Owens said. “But we talked to Martel this week and he said he is still solid to Oklahoma State.”
