Welcome to the Monday edition of our Oklahoma State DieHards morning roundup, where we take you through the biggest headlines around Oklahoma State athletics.

Oklahoma State lands pair of 2019 tackles

Offensive line is a key area of need for the Cowboys’ 2019 class, and coach Mike Gundy finally has two tackles on board.

Katy, Texas, product Cole Birmingham and Overland Park (Kan.) St. Thomas Aquinas tackle Joe Michalski committed to the Cowboys over the weekend.

Birmingham considered 29 offers, but he was quick to commit to the Pokes after an official visit to Stillwater, Okla., last weekend.

Michalski was offered a scholarship during his unofficial visit to Stillwater, Okla., on June 14. He jumped on the offer, which was his seventh.

Oklahoma State is up to 13 verbal commitments for 2019 and cracked the top 30 in the 247Sports team recruiting rankings with the additions.

Progress continues on new baseball stadium

Oklahoma State provided a construction update on its new baseball stadium.

The venue, which is expected to open in 2020, continues to progress. The outline for a diamond can be seen from the sky.


The $60 million complex will include approximately 3,500 permanent seats, 13 suites and 400 premium seats in dedicated club and suite areas. Seating can be expanded to 8,000 as needed.

The new stadium will feature a dedicated student section with special loge seating, terrace seating in the outfield and a concourse that wraps around the entire facility.

Take a look at the construction so far:
