MUSKOGEE, Okla. (AP) _ Defensive end Derek Burton of Muskogee says he'll sign with Oklahoma State and two offensive linemen from Texas say they'll also be Cowboys.

Burton says he's choosing OSU over Oklahoma and Tulsa. His father was a three-year starter on the offensive line at Oklahoma State during the mid 1980s.

Also saying they'll sign with OSU are offensive linemen Russell Okung of Fort Bend, Texas, and Michael Booker of Paris, Texas. Okung says he had offers from Oklahoma and LSU while Booker chose OSU over TCU.

Verbal commitments are not binding. The national signing period begins February 1st.
