The Oklahoma State Cowboys added some bulk to their defensive line when they received a commitment from 3-start defensive tackle Taaj Bakari on Sunday.
As he always does, Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy hinted at the commitment via his twitter account.

The 6’2, 287-pounder attends Mansfield Legacy High School in Texas.
Bakari is ranked as the 61st best defensive tackle prospect, the 124th best overall prospect in the state of Texas regardless of position and the 953rd best overall prospect in the class of 2015, according to 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings.
Many pundits expected Bakari to stay in the state and sign with the TCU Horned Frogs, who have offered Bakari.
Bakari, the fourth commitment in the class of 2015 for Oklahoma State, also had offers from the Colorado State Rams and North Texas Mean Green.
