In any recruiting class, a program wants to pick up players it can build around for the future. The Oklahoma State Cowboys did a great job of that this year.
Many of the incoming Cowboys could be considered building-block players who could lead to even brighter days in the Oklahoma State football program's future. The criteria to determine such players are how well they will fit with the team and how talented they are.
These Cowboys are not only among the most talented in the country at their positions, but they also fit what the Cowboys need to continue to compete in a tough conference like the Big 12.
