Oklahoma State landed a huge commitment earlier today, when Bixby Oklahoma offensive lineman Bryce Bray announced his intention to attend Oklahoma State. Bray is the second offensive lineman to join the 2018 Oklahoma State class, as he’ll likely be protecting quarterback commit Spencer Sanders in a few years, with Hunter Anthony nearby. Bray is the fifth commitment overall for the Cowboys, and the only one to come from OSU’s spring game on Saturday.

Bray’s commitment is a huge one for Oklahoma State, and not just because of the junior’s large frame. The Cowboys missed on a couple of offensive linemen in the 2017 class, so an early o-line commit for the 2018 class really helps. This commitment also serves as a major win on the recruiting path over Big 12 foes Oklahoma and Iowa State, both of whom had been pressing hard for a commitment from Bray.
On the field, Bray is obviously a very large figure. He’s 6-foot-5, 309 pounds, and while 247Sports lists him as an offensive guard, at his size, he could very possibly end up at tackle in college. He’s not the most athletic offensive lineman in the world, but he’s impressively strong and the definition of a mauler. If Gundy and Co. can get this kid to be a little leaner, he could be incredibly dangerous on pulls. That is, if they end up putting him at his natural position of guard.
