Six early enrollees at OSU

Six Oklahoma State football players, part of the incoming recruiting class, have enrolled in classes and will take part in spring drills.

Three freshmen, two junior college transfers and an FBS transfer began classes on campus in Stillwater.

Quarterback Jelani Woods, athlete Lamarcus Morton and linebacker Brendan Vaughn all arrived after graduating their respective high schools a semester early, while linebacker Patrick Macon and offensive lineman Arlington Hambright transferred in after completing their junior college careers and Tyler Moore transferred in from Minnesota.

All three transfers will have two years of eligibility remaining, but Moore will have to sit out next season due to NCAA transfer rules.

The early enrollees represent four states, as Woods is from Ellenwood, Georgia, Hambright grew up in Ypsilanti, Michigan, Macon is from Memphis, Tennessee and Morton, Vaughn and Moore hail from Texas. All of them come with at least a three-star rating by multiple major recruiting services.

Additionally, Woods led Cedar Grove high school to its first state championship last season, while Macon and Hambright faced each other in the 2016 NJCAA National Championship game with Macon later named the National Junior College Athletic Association Defensive Player of the Year.
