2022 College Recruiting - 9 Commits

Last Player Grade Published on Aug. 18, 2021
Oklahoma State logo CB Dylahn McKinney (Colleyville, TX) commits to Oklahoma State  View Class

McKinney (6-0, 177) is a projected cover cornerback with a track-heavy background. The physical skills he has developed as a sprinter and hurdler in track should serve him well as a cornerback. McKinney shows a lot of good things on film, and the one thing that really stands out is his ability to challenge the catch. He gets impressive height on his jumps and gets his hands in the way. As McKinney continues to develop his ball skills, he'll turn those passes defended into turnovers.

Dylahn McKinney's Player Grade: C+
Oklahoma State logo WR Talyn Shettron (Edmond, OK) commits to Oklahoma State  View Class

Shettron (6-3, 195) and his brother, Tabry, committed to the Cowboys at the same time. Talyn Shettron had previously been committed to Oklahoma. He is a big, outside receiver heading to a program that has done very well by players with his skill set. Shettron is a big-play guy who gets vertical and has long speed. He can stretch a defense and has the straight-line speed to separate from most defensive backs. Shettron is a good athlete who also plays basketball. He plays like a big receiver; he can high-point the 50-50 balls and will use his body to box out defenders in red-zone situations. Shettron's physical tools compare favorably to any wide receiver in this class.

Talyn Shettron's Player Grade: A-
Oklahoma State logo TE Tabry Shettron (Edmond, OK) commits to Oklahoma State  View Class

Shettron (6-3, 215) is a little bigger than his twin brother, Talyn, and projects as more of a tight end. Tabry Shettron can catch some passes, but I'm not sure if he will be a flex guy. I think he might offer more value as an h-back, because he can block a little and seems to have enough upper-body strength to improve as a blocker. Shettron is a player who is going to need to be developed and get some time in the weight room to be the player who Oklahoma State envisions he'll be.

Tabry Shettron's Player Grade: C
Oklahoma State logo CB Avyonne Jones (Southlake, TX) commits to Oklahoma State  View Class

Jones (5-11, 180) comes from the highly regarded Southlake Carroll program, so he is battling against top competition in practice and on Friday nights. Jones has good size and jams a wide receiver coming off the line. Jones shows decent ball skills and does well to challenge most passes. He finished with over 10 pass deflections as a junior. I would like to see him create more interceptions when he's challenged. Jones moves pretty well, although he looks a little stiff when changing directions and opening up, but I don't see those as big problems. He is a solid cornerback prospect.

Avyonne Jones' Player Grade: C+
Oklahoma State logo ATH Braylin Presley (Bixby, OK) commits to Oklahoma State  View Class

Presley (5-7, 155) continues the family tradition in Stillwater and will join his older brother, Brennan, who signed with the Cowboys in the class of 2020. The younger Presley has some limitations because of his size, but he makes up for it with very good speed and agility. He can play some snaps in the slot and will be especially useful in the return game. If he gains weight and gets thicker in the lower body, I believe he could also carve out a role in the backfield. The creative coaching staff at Oklahoma State, led by Mike Gundy, will figure out something for Presley.

Braylin Presley's Player Grade: C+
Oklahoma State logo QB Garret Rangel (Frisco, TX) commits to Oklahoma State  View Class

Rangel (6-2, 175) is a more classic style of quarterback. He's a little thin on the frame right now, but I'm sure that will change once he's in a college strength program. Rangel has put up some gaudy numbers in high school. He threw for over 4,500 yards and 50 touchdowns as a sophomore and hit about half those numbers as a junior in an abbreviated season.

Rangel is a good fit for Oklahoma State and Mike Gundy's offense because he goes down field. He can spin it far and put the ball in the right place. More importantly than that: Rangel protects the football and makes the right decision more times than not.

Garret Rangel's Player Grade: B
Oklahoma State logo DE Landon Dean (Frontenac, KS) commits to Oklahoma State  View Class

It was a big day for Oklahoma State as the program landed a couple of targets to really kick start its recruiting efforts for the 2022 class. Dean (6-4, 227) is a big athlete who looks like he'll be worked out as a defensive end. Dean also plays tight end and had some programs interested in him on offense.

I think defense is the right choice for Dean. He has looked like man among boys against his high school competition, which isn't particularly strong. That being said, Dean can get to the quarterback and make plays in the backfield. He is supposed to dominate the competition he faces, and he does just that.

Landon Dean's Player Grade: B
Oklahoma State logo CB Cameron Epps (St. Louis, MO) commits to Oklahoma State  View Class

Cameron Epps' Player Grade: C+
Has Decommitted - now committed to Oregon
Oklahoma State logo OT Kelvin Banks (Humble, TX) commits to Oklahoma State  View Class
Banks is the first commit for Oklahoma State in the 2022 recruiting cycle. He's a young player, but physically (6-5, 280), he already looks the part. On film, Banks is strictly using power and effort to get the job done. He'll have plenty of time to refine his technique and skills and will certainly spend two years around the Oklahoma State program getting help in those areas. Kelvin Banks' Player Grade: C+
