Three-star offensive tackle Jesse Robinson (Hurst, Texas/L.D. Bell) went to Stillwater, Okla., for Oklahoma State’s homecoming weekend and took in the Cowboys’ 31-10 win over Iowa State.
On Monday, the 6-foot-6, 271-pound tackle decided Oklahoma State was the place for him. Robinson gave his verbal commitment to the Cowboys and became the program’s 17th commitment in the Class of 2013. Robinson chose Oklahoma State over an offer from Kansas State and strong looks from TCU and Baylor.
Robinson was recruited by Joe Wickline, one of the more respected offensive line coaches in college football.
“Their O-line coach, he’s the best there is,” Robinson said. “Coach [Mike] Gundy has a great program all around. Their facilities are top notch. The school is great. I liked everything about it.”
Robinson, the No. 52 tackle in the country, became the third committed tackle and the fifth committed offensive lineman for Oklahoma State. Robinson had additional offers from Texas Tech, Arkansas State, Texas State, Louisiana-Monroe, Rice and Nevada, among other programs.
