After being committed to Oklahoma State since February of 2012, it would seem that stud wide receiver recruit Fred Ross is having second thoughts.

Ryan Aber of NewsOK.com recently reported that Oklahoma State Cowboys' defensive end recruit Tyus Bowser decided to de-commit from OSU so that he could go to a school that would let him play college basketball and football.

Along with that news, Aber goes on to say that Ross is now considering going to Mississippi State after taking a visit last week.

This topic is further confirmed in an interview with Ross' coach via Scout.com's GoPokes website.

In this interview, Ricklan Holmes says that Ross is "weighing his options" and that "he's not sure...what got him so interested in Mississippi State."


If this turns out to be more than smoke and Ross does decide that he'd rather go to Mississippi State, it would be a big blow to Oklahoma State, especially considering that they just lost Bowser earlier this week.

Ross is ranked as a 4-star recruit by Scout.com and is one of the Cowboys' highest-ranked players in their 2013 class.

The good news is that Oklahoma State has a plethora of wide receivers coming in next year, but you never want to lose two recruits this close to signing day. 

Look for Mike Gundy to jump back on the trail and lock Ross back up before he decides that he'd be better off at Mississippi State.
