Oklahoma State senior WR Marcell Ateman could be sidelined until October after undergoing surgery to repair a broken bone in his foot.

Ateman stands a gigantic 6-foot-4 and 215-pounds. He emerged last season, leading some to say he is the school's top target moving forward. Ateman finished with 766 yards and five touchdowns on 45 receptions. Ateman's best games included Iowa State, Kansas State and West Virginia. However, the receiver's foot was injured in non-contact drills over the summer. Foot injuries tend to lead to other ailments down the road, so Ateman should not rush his return.

Eric Galko of Optimum Scouting compares Oklahoma State junior QB Mason Rudolph to Ryan Tannehill.

You may recall that Tannehill also platooned while slowly developing at Texas A&M. A huge senior year allowed him to crash the top-10 party in that spring's NFL Draft. May a similar rise be in Rudolph's immediate future? Galko wrote that Rudolph reminds him of Tannehill "in terms of body type, movement ability and composure, release point and velocity and issues in downfield throw placement." As with Tannehill, "Rudolph has the potential to see the same sudden rise during the draft process should he enter the 2017 NFL draft," Galko wrote. The 6-foot-5, 235-pound Rudolph threw for 3,770 yards (62.3% completions) with a 21/9 TD/INT ratio last year.

Oklahoma State HC Mike Gundy noted that redshirt senior RB Barry Sanders Jr. is "dependable" and "seems to be durable."

Sanders transferred over to his father's alma mater in February. Gundy has yet to truly see him in action, but said, "He came from a winning program and from an offense that obviously runs the football. So we’re excited about him being a part of our team. We hope that he will make a contribution that will help us be a better running football team." The 5-foot-10, 198-pound Sanders saw just 115 carries during his three seasons with Stanford and finished out his career with the Cardinal having rushed for 672 yards (5.8 YPC) and five touchdowns. He and Chris Carson will take on the majority of the ground load in 2016, with Carson penciled in as the starting back out of the spring.

Sports on Earth's Matt Brown believes a breakthrough season "could move [Oklahoma State junior QB Mason Rudolph] into first-round NFL draft consideration."

The 6-foot-5, 235-pound Rudolph threw for 3,770 yards (62.3% completions) with a 21/9 TD/INT ratio last year. This time around, he won't lose reps to dual-threat QB J.W. Walsh. "A big, strong-armed pocket passer, Rudolph will especially be helped if a problematic offensive line takes a step forward," Brown wrote. Rudolph perfectly fits the Cowboys' quick-hitting offense.

Oklahoma State AD Mike Holder indicated that he would be open to a resumption of his school's rivalry with Tulsa.

Oklahoma State and Tulsa are currently scheduled to play in 2017 and 2020, but do not have an arrangement for a regular series. Holder would like to change that. "We like the idea of playing Tulsa in football and basketball on an annual basis. This matchup brings a lot of passion on both sides," he said. "I’ve visited about this multiple times with [Tulsa AD] Derrick Gragg, and I believe that he is open-minded about the concept." The two teams last played in 2011, when the Cowboys came away with a 59-33 win. On the whole, Oklahoma State holds a 40-27-5 advantage in the rivalry. Another fun stat to liven up your Fourth of July festivities (tell your friends and neighbors!), Tulsa is currently on a 20-game road losing streak against Oklahoma State. They have not won in Stillwater since 1951.

Bleacher Report's David Kenyan believes Oklahoma State junior QB Mason Rudolph might be a better NFL prospect than Miami's Brad Kaaya.

"The potential frustration with Rudolph is Oklahoma State's offensive philosophy, which focuses on quick-hitting, high-percentage throws," Kenyan wrote. "He'll need to learn a more complex scheme in the pros." The 6-foot-4, 220-pound Rudolph threw for 3,770 yards (62.3% completions) with a 21/9 TD/INT ratio last year as a sophomore. "Rudolph is poised in the pocket and will pass the velocity threshold," Kenyan wrote. "He needs to continue improving accuracy, but that's practically a mandated criticism for college quarterbacks. If [Carson] Wentz was worthy of the No. 2 overall selection, there's little doubt Rudolph can be a first-round pick."

The Oklahoma State Board of Regents approved a two-year contract extension for HC Mike Gundy.

Gundy's extension will run through the 2021 season. In each of those two years on the extension, he will make $4.15 million -- the same amount he was making in the final year (2019) of his previous contract. In his 11 seasons with the Cowboys, Gundy has led the team to a 94-47 record. They opened the 2015 season to the tune of 10-0 before fading down the stretch to finish 10-3.

The Oklahoma State Board of Regents will vote on a potential two-year extension for HC Mike Gundy on Friday.

University spokesperson Gary Shutt confirmed that the vote would take place on a possible two-year extension, but monetary terms have not yet been disclosed. If it passes, it will take effect on July 1 and Gundy's contract would run through 2021. In 11 seasons helming the Cowboys, he holds a 94-47 record. Last season, his squad jumped out to a 10-0 record before "just kind of [running] out of gas" to finish 10-3. Gundy's phrasing.

Oklahoma State senior S Jordan Sterns "has the tenacity to overcome questions about his size," according to ESPN's Brandon Chatmon.

The 6-foot, 205-pound Sterns 103 tackles in 2014 and 108 in 2015. And with that, he became the first Oklahoma State underclassman in 18 years to reach the 100-tackle mark and then the first Cowboy since Keith Burns (1992-1993) to log consecutive 100-plus tackle seasons. OSU's defensive MVP will be up to his old tricks this fall.

Baylor granted an NLI release to 2016 DT signee D.Q. Osborne, who then committed to Oklahoma State.

Osborne initially signed on with Missouri as a member of the 2013 recruiting class. After taking a redshirt his freshman year, he opted to transfer to Kilgore Junior College. The 6-foot-3, 310-pounder was named a First-Team NJCAA All-American last season on the strength of 61 tackles (17 for loss), six sacks and an interception. He then signed on with Baylor as part of the 2016 cycle, before HC Art Briles was fired. Now free from his Baylor NLI, Osborne plans on enrolling at Oklahoma State on July 6, for the second semester of summer courses. Come the start of the 2016 campaign, he will have two years of eligibility remaining.

Oklahoma State senior TE Blake Jarwin "should impress [the NFL] with his measurables and long-term potential," writes ESPN's Brandon Chatmon.

"His combination of size, speed and ball skills should make him a terrific target for the Cowboys in the fall," Chatmon wrote. The 6-foot-5, 248-pounder should provide a nice underneath complement to James Washington in the passing game this fall. Jarwin was a 2015 First Team All-Big 12 (Coaches) selection.

Oklahoma State junior WR James Washington's "incredible ball skills and competitive nature should draw looks of intrigue from NFL scouts," writes ESPN's Brandon Chatmon.

Washington "can turn any play into a touchdown with his terrific speed," Chatmon wrote. The 6-foot, 200-pound Washington was a midseason addition to the Biletnikoff Award Watch List last season and ended the year as a Second-Team All-Big 12 selection (the First-Teamers were Biletnikoff Award finalists Corey Coleman and Josh Doctson, so cut him some slack on that). Washington led the nation with four 70-plus yard catches and ranked No. 10 in the FBS with 20.5 yards per catch last year.

Oklahoma State sophomore DE Trey Carter had three sacks and fell on a fumble in the scrimmage

The Cowboys, who must replace Emmanuel Ogbah and Jimmy Bean, were sure happy to see Carter's breakout performance. It's worth noting that no other player had more than one sack in the game, so Carter will be relied upon heavily for his pass rushing acumen this fall in a pass-happy league. He isn't guaranteed a starting job just yet, but will be a situational rusher if he can't secure one this summer.

College Football 24/7 writer Chase Goodbread ranked Oklahoma State graduate RB Barry J. Sanders as the No. 11 transfer for 2016.

"OSU could use a boost at the position," Goodbread noted. The 5-foot-10, 198-pounder was a four-star recruit out of high school when he joined Stanford in 2013. Christian McCaffrey was part of the next recruiting class and the rest, as they say, is history. Now heading to his father's old stomping grounds, Sanders will look to challenge Chris Carson for starter carries. Carson rushed for 517 yards (3.9 YPC) and four touchdowns last season. For reference's sake, in his three years at Stanford, Sanders averaged a far more impressive 5.8 YPC mark, albeit on 115 carries spread across that space.

ESPN's Brandon Chatmon wrote that Oklahoma State sophomore WR Jalen McCleskey's "role should expand even more in 2016."

Chatmon believes that McClesky "has the potential to make an impact as a rusher, receiver and returner this fall thanks to his tremendous speed and quickness." The 5-foot-10, 170-pounder earned some love from the coaches following the close of the 2015 campaign and was named winner of the Russell Okung Award, given to the team's most outstanding newcomer. He earned that on the strength of 29 catches for 253 yards and three touchdowns receiving. McCleskey also returned 21 punts for 111 yards and a score. Those 29 catches were good for fourth on the team.
