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.

El Paso team’s journey symbolizes coaches’ challenge to find opponents

The football team from El Paso Del Valle was prepared to travel 590 miles last week to play a game in Hutto. Unfortunately, the threat of lightning storms in Central Texas forced the teams to cancel. No sense in spending money for food, gas and hotel rooms for a game that might not be played. For more than 1,300 public high schools in the state, the...

Letters to the Sports Editor

Foster should be kicked off for his behavior I watched the game on television between USC and UT and found the behavior of B.J. Foster and fellow football players disgusting. As he was being escorted off the field, his fellow teammates were giving him praise for his illegal behavior. I think the whole incident (was) ugly and even Foster’s behavior...
