Scout.com National Analyst Greg Powers weighs in with his thoughts on the Oklahoma State class now that all of the signatures are in on National Signing Day (NSD)...

TOP OFFENSE

As the star debates go on for years to come think back about three-star quarterback Mason Rudolph, a 6-foot-4, 200-pound flame-thrower from Rock Hill (S.C) Northwestern. Rudolph could be the type of prospect who comes right in and pushes for playing time, competing for the starting job.

TOP DEFENSE

I love Jarrell Owens' potential, but Broken Arrow (Okla.) linebacker Gyasi Akem has a blend of skills that is quite unique. He will come in to his own as a player on the field, but his athleticism sets him apart. He is an awesome straight line track star who will be able to be as fast as the offensive players he is trying to tackle.

INSTANT IMPACT

Tyreek Hill is the lone five-star in the class and he will be coming in with junior college experience. He is a speed demon who should be a lightning bolt to the Oklahoma State offense. He will fit in well with what the school does on offense, as he will be able to help spread the field with his speed.

BIG MISS

His father played at OSU, so it is a double whammy that Jenks sfaety Steven Parker picked to play for the in-state rival. Good thing the Pokes were able to secure a commitment from his Jenks teammate Dylan Harding.

SLEEPER

There are lots of candidates on the list, but the deepest sleeper may be Stamford (Texas) High receiver James Washington. He is known for his speed. As much as I like Washington on defense I have a lot of fun watching Josh Mabin on defense. Also a sleeper cause an ACL injury slowed his early recruitment.
