Oklahoma State Signee Zack Dawson Still Committed to Oklahoma State

Zack Dawson. [Scout]

Brad Underwood’s abrupt departure for Illinois leaves a lot hanging in the balance — perhaps nothing more important still in question is the recruits who had already signed up to play for him next season. The entire 2017 class has already signed its letter of intent, binding the school and the player. However circumstances (such as a coaching change, life event, etc.) many times will prompt the NCAA to release the student athlete from that commitment.

There have not been any decommitments from the class as we stand now. Most likely, there won’t be until the hire is made— it’s the coach-to-be’s job to sway those kids to stay signed up, one way or another. And right now, OSU point guard commitment Zack Dawson tells me he is still committed to Oklahoma State.

For now.

Dawson, the South Miami star guard, is a top-100 national recruit who was the first commitment under Brad Underwood. He has been committed to the school since June. But the news that Underwood is gone puts in question every recruit’s status, including Dawson’s. I get the feeling, just speculating, that he will likely wait and see what happens with the coaching hire. If they bring in a guy who can connect with him and talk him into staying, he’ll stay. But it’s a delicate situation … you’re asking a new coach to re-recruit a player and likely start from scratch on a new relationship.

    This article is click-bait. It tells me absolutely nothing. Thanks for wasting my time.

        Can you please tell me what purpose this article serves? It’s extremely misleading. Why even put it up?

        • Kyle Boone

          I talked directly with an OSU commit who confirmed he’s still committed. The article headline: “Oklahoma State Signee Zack Dawson Still Committed to Oklahoma State”
          and the content match up exactly. Can you tell me why you are trolling at 11:00 pm on a Sunday night? Nothing better to do?

            Fair enough, my mistake. There were no quotes nor mention of you speaking with Dawson other than through inference. Would love for him to stay.

            Bro, you should have put those details in the article. The fact you didn’t makes me wonder…

          • James

            There is nothing in the article about you speaking with him. Seems like that should have been the lede.

            Did you even read the article??
            “And right now, OSU point guard commitment Zack Dawson tells me he is still committed to Oklahoma State.”

            “Tells me” insinuates that he actually spoke with the recruit. Read the article before spreading your idiocy.

    Kyle, did you know about the contract issues when you picked Michigan?

    “Snowflake”….nice demeaning comment that is generated by the Far Right. This country is divided enough without the need for one side to try and command over the other. If you disagree with what he said, fine. But, c’mon dude.

    • FAAAR RIGHT!!!

      Lol. Tfw you’re a snowflake that is insulted by the term “snowflake”

      • Justdoitpokes88

        I’m more offended we lost a good hoops coach at more than anything, but yeah, the snowflake bullshit needs to stop.

    Might want to include the quotes you got from the prospect. Otherwise, the article comes off as nothing more than a guess on your part.
