“Rasmus continues a long history of top European players joining the Cowboy family. He’s a very good ball striker and has a lot of international experience that will help his transition to college golf,” Bratton said. “He and his dad  got to enjoy their first Bedlam game over the weekend. This weekend helped Rasmus understand what Oklahoma State is all about. We can’t wait for his arrival in the fall.”
