Oklahoma State filled a major need by signing running back Chris Carson on Wednesday.

Carson had previously committed to his homestate Georgia Bulldogs. He played for Butler (Kan.) Community College last season, where he ran for 994 yards and nine touchdowns. The Cowboys kicked standout Tyreek Hill off the team after he was arrested following a domestic violence incident, and Desmond Roland was a senior, leaving the team thin at running back.

Darrion Daniels, a defensive tackle from Dallas, is the star of the recruiting class. His father, Tony, played football for Texas Tech and the Green Bay Packers.

The Cowboys also got late commitments from offensive lineman Marcus Keyes of Port Allen, Louisiana, and running back Jeff Carr of Temple (Texas) High School.
