STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) _ Oklahoma State football coach Mike Gundy finds little to complain about when it came to the Cowboys' 23-player recruiting class.

He said yesterday that the Cowboys, buoyed by a 7-and-6 finish and an Independence Bowl win over Alabama, filled practically every need they had.

Gundy says there were no surprises in the OSU recruiting class, despite the last-minute switch by highly recruited Norman High School cornerback Ryan Broyles, who instead signed with Oklahoma.

OSU signed 16 players from Texas as well as three in-state players -- defensive lineman Quinton Prince from Heritage Hall High School in Oklahoma City, linebacker Jared Glover of Bixby and wide receiver Josh Cooper of Mustang.

The two most highly regarded players in the class are defensive end Richetti Jones, who played at Dallas Lincoln High School, and wide receiver Desmond Bryant from Lufkin, Texas.
