Converse Judson safety Tre Flowers announced he was de-committing from Arizona State on Monday. He also confirmed that Oklahoma State was one of his leaders amid Twitter messages from fellow San Antonio area standouts Jordan Sterns of Cibolo Steele and Vincent Taylor of Madison High School, both of whom were already committed to OSU. The 6-3, 180-pound Flowers confirmed Wednesday his commitment.

"I'm really through with recruiting," said Tre Flowers. "I've committed to Oklahoma State. I had a talk with my family and we all decided that this was the best thing for me."

Flowers had committed to Arizona State in October amid all kinds of recruiting attention from the likes of BYU, Boise State, Kansas State, Mississippi State, Utah, Houston, Iowa State, and others. He had more than 12 scholarship offers.

Flowers was an all-district performer last season as a junior with four interceptions. This season, which ended in the playoffs with a 31-28 loss to San Antonio O'Connor last Friday, he had three interceptions despite battling some injuries. Also a track standout, Flowers will make his official visit to Oklahoma State in January.

"I just got off the phone 10 minutes ago with Coach (Van) Malone and i'm going to take that Jan. 18 visit," said Flowers of a weekend where many of the Cowboys committed players are expected to make visits.

Two of those guys, Sterns and Taylor, seem very eager to be teammates with Flowers.

"I'm looking formward to that. It's good to be with those guys," said Flowers of his teammates that started tweeting the good news on Tuesday morning.

Flowers becomes the 18th verbal commitment for Mike Gundy and the Cowboys. He is the third safety and the fourth defensive back. It could be expected to see the Cowboys look for two more defensive backs in the 2013 class.
