Oklahoma State has made a living under Les Miles in landing some of the top blue-chip players in the Lone Star State and it looks like he’s added another notch in his belt and this time it’s a huge notch. A four-star blue-chip quarterback has committed to the Cowboys.
Galena Park (Texas) North Shore quarterback Robbie Reid has committed to the Cowboys.
“I told coach Miles and he started screaming and yelling,” an obviously excited Reid said. “He said now that we’ve got our quarterback, we’re done at the position and we’re going to go get you some guys to throw the ball to.”
Reid, ranked as the nation’s No. 3 dual-threat quarterback and a 6.0 on the Rivals Rating scale, is one of the most sought after quarterbacks in the nation. He had offers from Arkansas, Georgia, Kansas State, Ohio State, Syracuse and Tennessee before he committed to OSU.
Reid passed for 1,485 yards and 13 scores as a junior. He also rushed for 776 yards and 16 touchdowns. He gets compared quite a bit to former Houston quarterback Vincent Young, another dual-threat quarterback that was ranked high before he signed with Texas two years ago.
With all of the attention that Reid received he said he’s known for a little while that he was going to be a Cowboy.
“I knew for a little bit that it’d be them,” he said. “OSU has been showing me a lot of love since the beginning. I felt like I was ready to make the decision and I knew it was time to get it out of the way before school started.”
Reid said he’s already established a great relationship with coach Gundy at OSU.
“He’s silly like my quarterbacks coach here at school,” Reid said. “I just really got a long with him. When I was up there at camp, he was talking about how we were going to do this and that when I was there. That was kind of cool to hear him talk about me already being part of the team before I had even committed.”
It also doesn’t hurt that OSU has made North Shore a major recruiting priority over the past few seasons. The Cowboys have one NS player on its roster and has a pledge from one of Reid’s teammates.
“That helped a lot,” Reid said. “I wanted to be somewhere where I could go hang out with my friends and know somebody if I just ever needed to talk.”
