Reports in The Oklahoman and the Tulsa World have Tulsa Washington head coach Marvin Dantzler confirming that his standout defensive end Jordan Brailford has verbally committed to Oklahoma State.

We spoke to Brailford on Friday and he seemed hushed about his recruiting, but excited about his performance in the Cowboys one-day minicamp from the previous Saturday.

Brailford said he had a good time and thought he performed well. It was clear that he and fellow Oklahoma State commit and defensive tackle prospect Joyan Williams of Edna Karr High School in New Orleans and defensive end prospect Justin Hollins of Grace Prep Academy in Arlington, Texas were the top performers.

Brailford ran a 4.73 although he has recorded sub 4.6 in the forty, but his reported 5-10-5 drill time of 4.23 was as good or better than some of the top running backs, wide receivers and defensive backs. The 6-3, 220-pound Brailford also has a reported 37.5-inch vertical jump that puts him off the charts in that category at his position.

Last season at Tulsa Washington, he had 98 total tackles with 11 sacks and two fumbles recovered, one of those he returned for a touchdown.

Brailford also had scholarship offers from Baylor, Texas Tech, Washington State and Tulsa, as well as others.

He becomes the 11th commitment in the Cowboys recruiting class and joins Broken Arrow teammates in linebacker Gyasi Akem and running back Devon Thomas to form a really strong trio of in-state commitments in the 2014 recruiting class. The Cowboys took just one in-state player in the 2013 class in Tuttle jumbo athlete Dawson Bassett.
