Cedrick Poutasi said he had just started hearing from Oklahoma State a couple days ago but after the Cowboys offered on Thursday the Las Vegas (Nev.) Desert Pines offensive lineman was thrilled and he's thinking about a visit.
"That's a big offer," Poutasi said.
Rated as the eighth-best offensive guard, No. 219 prospect in the 2012 class and second in the Nevada state rankings, Poutasi said Oklahoma State definitely interests him even though he doesn't know too much about the program.
Over the next couple weeks, Poutasi said he's going to do lots more research and he's definitely interested in setting up an official visit soon. Even though things are new with the Cowboys he'd like to get there as soon as possible.
"I don't know a whole lot but I do know that if I go out there I will be really focused and the coaches are really excited about me," Poutasi said.
Utah remains the leader for the 6-foot-5, 322-pound four-star prospect and Arizona State is also in contention but the new offer from Oklahoma State could change up his recruitment. A visit to Stillwater will be important.
Looking back on how things were handled, Poutasi might be pleased he didn't make the commitment he was thinking about earlier this fall.
After a visit to Arizona State, Poutasi said he wanted to commit on the spot but family members told him to hold off and wait to take other trips.
He visited Utah and loved the environment, players and coaching staff and now the Utes have emerged as a favorite.
But Oklahoma State could make things even more interesting especially because Poutasi wants to set up a trip and the Cowboys are playing so well so far this season.
