The Oklahoma State have made a late addition to its Class of 2016, but it is a big time player that could make an immediate impact. On Tuesday, Kilgore Junior College defensive tackle DeQuinton Osborne, a former Baylor signee, announced his commitment to the Cowboys program.
Robert Allen of GoPokes.com was first to report the news.
“I liked the coaches and the campus is beautiful,” Osborne told the site. “I can see myself playing football here the next two years and enjoying being at the school. I enjoyed everything about my visit.”
The 6-foot, 305-pound Osborne asked for and was granted his release in the midst of the Baylor sexual assault scandal.
During his time as a JUCO standout, the defensive lineman earned first-team All-American honors by the National Junior College Athletic Association.
Last season, Osborne recorded 61 tackles, 17 of which were for loss, six sacks and an interception.
Osborne will be part of a deep defensive tackle rotation along with starters Vincent Taylor and Motekiai Maile, and a number of other returning contributors.
