Cowboys snare juco LB from WVU

Devante Averette (Iowa Falls, Iowa/Ellsworth CC) has switched his commitment from West Virginia to Oklahoma State, according to multiple reports. He made an official visit to Stillwater, Okla. last weekend for the Cowboys' 33-29 victory over Kansas State.

The 6-foot, 230-pound linebacker originally selected the Mountaineers in August after a July visit. Appalachian State, Florida Atlantic and North Texas were his other scholarship offers. Arkansas, Iowa, Iowa State and Minnesota showed interest.

Oklahoma State now has 22 pledges and the nation's No. 27-ranked class.
