Oklahoma State landed a commitment from a dynamic athlete, Trey Sterling, earlier this week. The Cowboys plucked Sterling out of Sunnyvale High School, just outside the Dallas area, and PFB caught up with him to talk about his recent decision to play for the Cowboys.Q: Walk me through the recruitment process for you — when did OSU offer, and what was your decision process like that helped you land on the Cowboys?A: The offer came a couple of days ago. But before the offer I had been talking to the coaches quite often and that helped with the decision, along with the coaches showing they cared about me actually wanted me and not just sending stuff they send to hundreds of players across the country. After the offer me and my family talked about the pros and cons of OSU and there was only one negative and it had nothing to do with my academic or athletic lifestyle. I’m into all of the tradition at OSU, it’s so rare I would be stupid not to commit as early as I did.Q: What position are they looking to slip you into at OSU, and what type of player is OSU getting in Trey Sterling?A: OSU is getting a player who is still discovering his potential. I’m a very physical safety who isn’t shy to come down hill and hit someone! My coverage is just as good but most people don’t see that because my physicality is what stands out.Oklahoma State’s getting a tough, physical safety made in the form of Jordan Sterns — he has good range and coverage, and isn’t afraid to lay down the truck-stick on the back end. He’s played multiple positions in high school, including running back which only adds to the intrigue of Sterling as an athlete with some high upside. Check out highlights from the early part of his senior season.last_img
