The Oklahoma State Cowboys official won the race with Cole Birmingham on Sunday afternoon. A 3-star offensive lineman, Birmingham pledged to play college football in Stillwater following an official campus visit. Becoming the second lineman to commit in less than a week’s time, OSU’s 2019 Class grows to thirteen.
After a great official visit, I'm excited to announce that I have committed to continue my academic and athletic career at Oklahoma State University! #GoPokes #CowboyUp19 @CoachGundy @Coach_Henson @CowboyFB @CowboyFB_Elite @OSUAthletics pic.twitter.com/H5tbQ1C2K5

Over the course of his high school career, Birmingham has displayed a certain versatility that enables the lineman to play various positions. Yet, the Cowboys remain interested in the budding star as a tackle prospect. Holding blocks and finishing through the whistle, the Katy, Texas ranks 56th in the nation at the position. Despite the ranking, 29 different programs showed an interest in the 6-4 293-pounder.
Once believed to be a lock for the Baylor Bears, the decision may come as a surprise to some. However, Josh Henson continued to showcase the ability to recruit at a high level. After pulling in five offensive lineman during the previous recruiting cycle, Henson displayed no sign of slowing down.
