Early Commit: LB Levi Draper to Oklahoma State

Oklahoma State is on the board for 2017, and the first verbal is a big one. On Monday, ESPN Junior 300 linebacker Levi Draper (No. 141) cast his lot with Mike Gundy and the Cowboys.

Significance of impact: This is a huge win for Oklahoma State, to put it mildly. With verbal offers from a number of the nation's top programs including Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida State, Missouri and Oklahoma, winning the race early for Oklahoma State is a nice feather in the cap to get the 2017 class rolling. Keeping the No. 1-ranked prospect in state very close to home is a huge win considering the competition.
