Smyrna (Ga.) Campbell 2023 safety Tywon Wray fell in love on his official visit to Oklahoma State over the weekend.

Heading into the week, Wray is now an Oklahoma State commit. He will sign with the Cowboys on Wednesday. The Cowboys’ coaching staff wowed Wray during his visit.

“What really won me over with Oklahoma state was the coaching staff,” Wray told On3. “There is so much experience and they have produced so much talent that it made it a no-brainer. The family atmosphere also played a big part in what won me over. They build and develop you. They make you a better person than when you first arrive.”

Wray was impressed by the campus as well.

“The campus was amazing,” Wray said. “The number of majors they had there was crazy and the football facilities were top of the line as well as having the best strength coach in college football. That also really won me over they have everything I could possibly need.”

Wray felt welcomed when he met with safeties coach Dan Hammerschmidt and the current group of defensive backs in Stillwater. Wray expects to play safety or a rover position in the Oklahoma State defense.

“I knew I was in the right place when I was in the team room with coach Hammer, and I got to meet the other defensive backs,” Wray said. “They were immediately welcoming and treated me like one of their own. I also got to learn the formations and plays early and just how much they take care of their players is honestly unmatched.”

Wray is grateful for the opportunity. Oklahoma State was the first Power Five program to offer Wray.

“I’m still in shock,” Wray said. “I just want to thank everyone that took their time with me. Coach (Derek) Mason, coach Hammer, coach (Mike) Gundy and the whole staff at Oklahoma state. They all believed in me, and they got a great steal.”
