It was good news for Oklahoma State on Friday night at Midwest City, Oklahoma star Jason Taylor II made a verbal commitment to play college football for the Cowboys. Thought to have narrowed his decision down between OSU, Tulsa, and SMU, Taylor became the 20th member of a 2018 O-State recruiting class that is ranked #20 by Rivals and #25 by 247Sports.
Although he’s the fifth defensive back to commit to to the Cowboys for 2018, it isn’t a guarantee that’s where he’ll end up playing. His versatility of playing both sides of the ball exceptionally well is what resulted in some schools recruiting him as a defensive player and others for the offensive side of the ball. Last season he racked up 570 yards receiving on 29 catches with only two drops and 10 touchdowns.
Ranked #14 on Oklahoma’s Super 30, Taylor received nearly a dozen college offers. In addition to his top three, Air Force, Arkansas State, Louisiana-Monroe, Memphis, North Texas, Ohio, and Wyoming had made offers to him.
