Welcome to the Tuesday edition of our Oklahoma State DieHards morning roundup, where we take you through the biggest headlines around Oklahoma State athletics.

Mason Rudolph to appear on ESPN show

ESPN’s “QB2QB with Russell Wilson” will feature Mason Rudolph, as well as three other 2018 NFL Draft prospects. The series consists of four 30-minute episodes, and each will premiere on ESPN’s main channel on Tuesday.

The show follows Super Bowl champion quarterback Russell Wilson mentoring the four incoming NFL rookies. The show replaces the popular series, “Jon Gruden’s QB Camp,” which was cancelled after Gruden took over as Oakland Raiders coach.

Rudolph’s episode will air at 8 p.m. ET.

Men’s basketball lands 2 commitments

Coach Mike Boynton landed two of Oklahoma’s best 2019 prospects on Monday. A pair of Tulsa Memorial standouts — Kalib and Keylan Boone — committed to the Cowboys.

The brothers had a handful of offers from other in-state schools, as well as interest from other major programs. But the Boone brothers are all in on the Cowboys.

It’s been a solid recruiting week for Boynton. The Cowboys also landed 6-foot-10 center Kentrevious Jones, who will join the team this season.

Softball sweeps Big 12 weekly honors

Oklahoma State’s Emmie Robertson and Vanessa Shippy earned Big 12 honors on Monday when the conference named Robertson its Pitcher of the Week and Shippy the Player of the Week.

Robertson threw a complete game shutout against Missouri State, and gave up 1 run during Oklahoma State’s series against Baylor. Shippy had a superb week, scoring 6 runs against Baylor. She also had multiple hits in all five of the Cowgirls’ games last week.

FRISCO — Once again Oklahoma is the runaway favorite to win the Big 12 football race. Emphasis on the run. No one has a better running back tandem than the Sooners. The probable starting quarterback runs much better than he throws. And the Sooners’ head coach doesn’t mind that his team is making a run for a fourth straight league...
