Cowboy Football Signs 23 On Early Signing Day

Posted: Updated:
STILLWATER -

Oklahoma State football coach Mike Gundy announced the signing of 23 student-athletes to national letters of intent today, the first day of the early signing period. According to Rivals, this is the highest-ranked recruiting class Gundy has attracted to Stillwater since taking over as head coach in 2005.

Mike Gundy Recaps 2018 Early Signee Class

The class features 12 defensive players and 11 offensive players, with the Cowboys addressing a specific area of need by signing five offensive linemen. The two most well-represented states in the class are Texas, with 13 signees and Oklahoma, with seven signees. There are 20 high school players in the class and three junior college products.

Included in the class are quarterback Spencer Sanders (Denton, TX/Ryan), receiver C.J. Moore (Tulsa, OK/Union) and defensive back Sean Michael Flanagan (Charleston, AR/Charleston).

A highly-regarded quarterback with the ability to do damage as both a passer and a runner, Sanders capped his senior season by being selected as the Gatorade Texas Player of the Year as well as Mr. Texas Football by Dave Campbell's Texas Football Magazine. He passed for 3,845 yards and 54 touchdowns and rushed for 1,380 yards and 16 touchdowns as a senior.

Considered the best wide receiver in the Oklahoma prep ranks and one of the state's best overall players, regardless of position, Moore chose Oklahoma State over reported offers from Alabama, Ohio State, Georgia, Texas and several other traditional programs.

Rivals rated Flanagan as the No. 1 overall player in Arkansas, regardless of position. The Cowboys were able to pry him away from the in-state Razorbacks late in the recruiting process.

Flanagan is one of five members of the class who are expected to enroll in January, joining offensive lineman Hunter Anthony, linebacker Blake Barron, defensive back Jarrick Bernard and tight end Jake Ross. Additionally, it should be noted that receiver Patrick McKaufman is already on campus.

The early signing period runs through Dec. 22.
