With the early signing period opening later this month, the Cowboys’ staff extended a late offer Sunday to an under-the-radar tailback.
Jaden Allen-Hendrix, out of South Carolina, announced an offer Sunday. Allen-Hendrix in unranked by the major recruiting services.
After a amazing conversation and home visit from @JohnWozniak2 I am truly blessed to receive an offer from OKLAHOMA STATE UNIVERSITY‼️#AGTG #GoPokes @CowboyFB @HaleMcGranahan @Irmo_Football @LoJoe12 pic.twitter.com/Cf9m7FhQlK

His only other FBS offer, per his Twitter account, is to Charlotte. Looking at his measurables and his film, it’s a wonder as to why other programs haven’t been after him. He is a bruiser with burst, listed at 6-foot-2, 225 pounds. He plays at Irmo High School in South Carolina, leading the Yellowjackets to a 13-1 record this season and an appearance in the state semifinals.
Allen-Hendrix ran for 2,215 yards and 25 touchdowns in 14 games this season. He eclipsed 200 rushing yards in three games this season, running for a season-high 257 in his season-opener. He also caught 20 passes for another 360 yards and four touchdowns in his senior season.
This feels like a similar situation to Tywon Wray last recruiting cycle. A safety from Georgia, Wray didn’t have a ton of notable offers last year before OSU offered in December. He signed shortly after.
OSU has one running back committed in the 2024 class in Del City’s Rodney Fields. The Cowboys have 16 commits in the class overall — a class that ranks 50th nationally and eight in the Big 12, per 247.
The early signing period opens Dec. 20.
