Houston Cy Falls three-star safety Andre Sexton is one of the Oklahoma State commitments that has been tough to reach since the coaching change at OSU. But rest easy Cowboy fans, the 6-foot, 189-pounder says he's sticking with the Cowboys.
"I talked to coach (Mike) Gundy today," Sexton said.
"He just told me what direction the program is going and what type of person he is. He sounded really reassuring. I liked what I heard. I told him that he has nothing to worry about with me. I'm sticking with the Cowboys."
Sexton said a big reason why he's sticking with OSU is coach Joe DeForrest.
"He's actually right here," Sexton, who originally committed to OSU this summer, said. "He's a great guy, and he's just reassuring to be with. Just talking to him makes me feel better about the situation at Oklahoma State. I wasn't so sure for a while, but now I'm sure that it's the place to be."
Sexton said he's been receiving a lot of attention since Les Miles left for the LSU job. Notre Dame made a run at Sexton today with new recruiting coordinator Rob Ianello, who is known as one of the best recruiters in Houston.
"It was really flattering to have Notre Dame show me interest," he said. "But they had their chance early on, and it's too late for them and all of the other teams. I'm going to call coach (Ianello) back here and tell him thanks, but I'm not interested."
