2013 WR Marcell Ateman (Wylie, Tx/east) has committed to Oklahoma State. #247Sports— Gerry_Hamilton (@GerryH247sports) May 3, 2012
This is not the news I wanted to hear when rumors began swirling this evening that Ateman might commit. A teammate of Baylor commit Quan Jones, Ateman has been rumored for some time to have Baylor as his leader, as well. The two talked on twitter from time to time about going to the same school and when Baylor secured Quan's commitment, it seemed likely that Ateman would follow. Ateman was probably 1A or 1B on Baylor's wish list for wide receivers depending on where you put Southwest HS's Robbie Rhodes (who I told you about just the other night).
Along with Oklahoma State and Baylor, Ateman held offers from Arkansas, Michigan, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, and Tennessee, among others.
Oh well, life goes on I suppose. We've still got Jones and Kyle Fulk in the fold already, and I'm more than happy with the two of them and Mr. Rhodes should he pull the trigger.
