Former Oklahoma State RB/WR Tyreek Hill has enrolled at West Alabama and will be in uniform on Saturday.

Hill's fallen a long way from drawing comparisons to former West Virginia standout Tavon Austin. He was dismissed from the Cowboys following a December arrest on a domestic violence charge, intimated in the spring that he would be joining the Akron Zips, did not join the Akron Zips and now lands at West Alabama's Division II program. The 5-foot-10, 185-pound athlete entered a plea deal for three years of probation and a deferred sentence last week, which perhaps helped to facilitate his finding a new football home.

Oklahoma State senior CB Kevin Peterson (knee) said that he is "ready to get back out there."

Peterson underwent a minor surgical procedure on his knee in the off-season, but he appears to be fully recovered as he nears next Thursday's opener against Western Michigan. Said the 5-foot-11, 185-pound senior, "I had to take rehab strong. I had to be real with myself about playing. I had to miss a couple of practices and things like that, but I’m ready to get back out there."

Former Oklahoma State RB/WR Tyreek Hill reached a plea deal in his domestic violence case, agreeing to three years of probation and a deferred sentence.

Hill suggested he was joining Akron back in the spring, but the Zips have not listed him on the roster and no announcement has been made. Hill was arrested in December after his girlfriend, who was eight weeks pregnant, told police he attacked her. Hill was dismissed shortly after.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline wrote that Oklahoma State junior DE Emmanuel Ogbah "seems to have the growth potential to develop into an every down end."

Pauline called the 6-foot-4, 275-pound junior "an explosive pass rushing end who plays with great athleticism" and highlighted his ability to "stand up over tackle." ESPN analyst Mel Kiper Jr. voiced a similar opinion in July, writing that Ogbah showed "out-of-a-cannon quickness." Kiper ranked him as the No. 2 underclassman defensive end prospect in the country. No. 1 would be Joey Bosa. Not bad company for the Cowboy, who recorded 11 sacks and 17 tackles for loss in 2014.

Per NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter, NFL scouts will notice Oklahoma State senior WR Brandon Sheperd's "toughness on the outside and playmaking ability after the catch."

The 6-foot-1, 195-pound Sheperd recorded 39 receptions for 737 yards and five scores, averaging 18.9 yards per catch as a junior. There's hope for far bigger numbers this fall because Sheperd clicked with Mason Rudolph, with whom he put up 12 catches, 254 yards, 3 TD in the last two games.

Oklahoma State junior DE Emmanuel Ogbah is a "high-energy, disruptive player off the edge," observes Sports on Earth's Matt Brown.

"Lost in a mediocre season for Oklahoma State, Ogbah emerged as a force for a defense in need of playmakers," Brown wrote. "His return gives Oklahoma State hope for a much-improved defense this fall, for a team that could make some noise in the Big 12 race." Brown pegs Ogbah as the No. 24 college football player in the country. The 6-foot-4, 275-pound Ogbah finished with 11 sacks and 17 tackles for loss as a redshirt sophomore.

Oklahoma State senior CB Kevin Peterson "might be one of the toughest" corners in the class, proposes NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter.

"He is a willing tackler against the run and fights through blocks to get to screen passes," Reuter wrote. "In coverage, he generally maintains good position and is able to fight receivers for 50/50 balls down the field." The 5-foot-11, 190-pound Peterson logged two interceptions, 11 pass breakups and 59 tackles in 2014. "His draft position will be determined by his timed speed, like many other cornerbacks, but no senior defender is more fearless than Peterson," Reuter wrote.

Akron is still not recognizing dismissed Oklahoma State junior WR/RB Tyreek Hill on their roster.

Hill was dismissed back in December following domestic abuse charges, and an anonymous SEC coach ripped the former Cowboy for his "repulsive" twitter account during the football player's recruitment. Hill reportedly transferred to Akron, but the change in school might not have happened after all. "Tried to get Akron to confirm he was joining the team a couple times since he announced. Nada," ESPN writer David Ubben tweeted.

College Football 24/7 writer Chase Goodbread believes Oklahoma State sophomore QB Mason Rudolph is "going to be a surprise to most this fall."

"There has been an undercurrent of offseason excitement for Oklahoma State quarterback Mason Rudolph. He played well enough last year as a freshman in three games against Baylor, Oklahoma and Washington to merit it, but he's still going to be a surprise to most this fall. The Cowboys had a disappointing season last year and Rudolph's emergence can make OSU a contender in the Big 12 once again," Goodbread wrote. The 6-foot-4, 220-pound Rudolph completed 57 percent of his passes, averaging 284.3 yards per game, with six touchdowns and four interceptions in 2014.

Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy confirmed that redshirt sophomore DT Vili Leveni will miss the 2015 season after tearing his ACL.

Leveni was probably going to start between DEs Emmanuel Ogbah and Jimmy Bean. "It's always difficult when you have a player that's injured, just because they put so much hard work and time into getting prepared for the season," Gundy said. "As a coach, it's one of the most difficult things to swallow. You have a young man that's done everything we've asked him to do, and he's put a lot of time in, and he's come to a bump in the road. Vili will be back with us at some point, and we're looking forward to getting him back." In the mix to replace him in the starting lineup are Ben Hughes, Vincent Taylor and true freshman Darrion Daniels.

Oklahoma State junior DE Emmanuel Ogbah "has the prototypical 4-3 DE frame at 275 pounds, but he'll show out-of-a-cannon quickness," according to ESPN's Mel Kiper.

"Get familiar with Ogbah," Kiper wrote. "He started strong last year with two sacks in a close loss to then-No. 1 Florida State, and finished with 11.0 overall." The draft expert grades Ogbah as the No. 2 underclassman defensive end prospect in the nation, behind Ohio State's Joey Bosa. Ogbah posted 17 tackles for loss in 2014.

Oklahoma State redshirt junior DB Derrick Moncrief, who transferred from Auburn, only allowed two receptions on 129 snaps in coverage in 2014.

The number might be a bit deceiving, as Moncrief was listed as a safety and might not have been matched up in one on one situations on each of those 129 snaps. Moncrief will need to sit out the 2015 season to satisfy NCAA transfer regulations, but keep his name in mind for the 2016 campaign.
Jul 20 - 10:21 AM

Sports on Earth's Matt Brown documents that Oklahoma State junior DE Emmanuel Ogbah "broke out in last year's season opener against Florida State" and "quickly became one of the nation's most disruptive ends."

"A quick, physical end, Ogbah brings relentless energy off the end, and he still seems to be only scratching the surface, with a high ceiling in 2015," Brown wrote. He pegs Ogbah as the No. 3 defensive end in the country, behind familiar faces Shawn Oakman and Joey Bosa. Ogbah was named to the All-Big 12 first-team in 2014 after logging 11 sacks and 17 tackles for loss.
Jul 14 - 10:43 PM

With the First Pick's Jon Dove argues that Oklahoma State junior DE Emmanuel Ogbah is an overrated prospect because, though he's a "terrific athlete," Ogbah "needs to work on his consistency and knowledge of the game."

To be more specific, Dove ranks Ogbah as the second-most overrated prospect in the nation behind Leonard Floyd. "His size, athleticism and quickness makes him an intriguing prospect with limitless potential as a pass rusher," Dove wrote. "However, he lacks the wide-array of pass-rush moves needed to make a consistent impact. Ogbah only really looks to attack the edge using his speed. He also needs to get stronger at the point of attack and improve his run defense."
Jul 12 - 7:18 PM

Former Auburn redshirt junior S Derrick Moncrief transferred to Oklahoma State.

Moncrief will need to redshirt the 2015 season but will have a final year of eligibility in 2016. Moncrief only spent one season at Auburn after transferring as the top JUCO safety in the country. He only started one game. Oklahoma State offered Moncreif a scholarship out of JUCO.
