Midwest City’s Makale Smith (Midwest City High School) had just seen his recruiting begin to take off before he shut it down on Sunday with an announcement that he’s committed to Oklahoma State. The 6-0/165 athlete received his first scholarship offer a little more than two months ago, on April 1st, and three more have followed since then, including the Cowboys on April 18th.
Apparently an orange and black offer was all that the 3-star prospect was waiting on as it took him less than six weeks to mull in over an make a decision.
A two-way player for the Bombers, Smith has spent time at both cornerback and wide receiver in high school but he is expected to play on the defensive side of the ball at Oklahoma State. The two-sport star (basketball and football) is just the next in a growing trend of Oklahoma prep players to commit to the Cowboys.
OSU went into the weekend with just five members of its 2021 recruiting class but exited with seven. Smith joined Norman’s Jaden Bray in making weekend pledges to the Cowboys. Their commitments aren’t just the sixth and seventh of the class, they are also the third and fourth from the state making more than half of the current class local home-grown talent.
