NFL Media ranks Oklahoma State OT Victor Salako as the No. 8 most impactful transfer.

Salako transferred from UAB to Oklahoma State after the former closed up shop on its football program. Last year, Salako helped Jordan Howard gain 1,587 yards on the ground. "Salako is one of the linemen who opened all those holes for Howard. Salako, a junior, is a big dude (6-6, 330) who started for two seasons for the Blazers, and he moved seamlessly into the starting left tackle spot for the Cowboys during spring drills. He has pro potential, but must improve his pass blocking," wrote College Football 24/7 writer Mike Huguenin.

ESPN's Mel Kiper ranks Oklahoma State junior DE Emmanuel Ogbah No. 8 on his first 2016 Big Board.

"A raw talent who needed a redshirt season, he broke though in 2014 with 17.5 tackles for loss, often showing exceptional quickness for a player standing 6-4 and carrying a lean 275 pounds," Kiper wrote. "If the growth curve continues with this kid, watch out." Most are already projecting just that. For instance, ESPN colleague Todd McShay slotted Ogbah No. 5 to the Bucs in a preliminary mock draft. Ogbah had 11 sacks last season.

CBS Sports' Rob Rang ranks Oklahoma State junior DE Emmanuel Ogbah as the No. 6 underclassmen draft prospect in the country.

"Former teammate Justin Gilbert was a surprising eighth overall pick in 2014," Rang wrote. "The well-built and crafty Ogbah could match that high grade in 2016." ESPN's Todd McShay slotted Ogbah No. 5 to the Bucs in a preliminary mock draft. The 6-foot-4, 275-pound Ogbah had 11 sacks last season and isn't going to sneak up on anyone in 2015.

ESPN's Todd McShay slotted Oklahoma State junior DE Emmanuel Ogbah No. 5 to the Bucs in a preliminary mock draft.

It's an extremely aggressive projection, though not an insane one. Ogbah had 11 sacks last season and features ideal size (6-foot-4, 275 pounds) and an intriguing blend of NFL athletic attributes. "I'm probably slotting him too early here, but Ogbah has an intriguing skill set and was highly productive during the 2014 season," McShay wrote.

Oklahoma State HC Mike Gundy named sophomore Mason Rudolph as the starting QB.

J.W. Walsh will take the backup reps and Daxx Garman will transfer. Gundy did note they plan to install a "special package" for Walsh to run. Rudolph played a lot of snaps in the final three games of the 2014 season, completing 57 percent of his passes for 853 yards, six touchdowns and four interceptions.
Mar 10 - 10:28 AM

ESPN's Jake Trotter reports that Oklahoma State HC Mike Gundy has announced that redshirt junior QB Daxx Garman has decided to transfer.

After QB J.W. Walsh sustained a season-ending foot injury, the 6-foot-2, 205-pound Garman started eight games in his place in 2014. Garman completed 152-of-277 passes for 2041 yards, with 12 touchdowns and 12 interceptions on the year. The former Arizona-now-Oklahoma-State transfer, sustained a concussion on Nov. 15 versus Texas and was replaced. It's been rumored that Gundy was planning to start sophomore QB Mason Rudolph, which may have played into Garman's decision to leave.

Oklahoma State has dismissed junior WR/RB Tyreek Hill following his Thursday night arrest for domestic abuse charges.

Hill has also been dismissed from the track team. The JUCO transfer looked very promising this season, but that all comes to an end very quickly. Expect Hill to enter the 2015 NFL Draft after just one season at the FBS level. Obviously he possesses talent, but Hill could easily go undrafted after this most recent event.

Oklahoma State junior WR/RB Tyreek Hill was arrested on domestic violence charges Thursday night.

Police were called to a local emergency room where a female indicated her boyfriend, Hill, assaulted her after an argument turned into a physical altercation. The woman says she was struck in the face, stomach, and was choked. "Hill was arrested based upon probable cause for domestic abuse – a felony punishable by one to three years in prison and/or a $3,000 fine," the Tulsa World writes. Hill transferred to Oklahoma State prior to this season from Junior College and has made an instant impact on the field.

Oklahoma State junior WR Tyreek Hill had a 92-yard punt return for a touchdown in Saturday's 38-35 overtime win over Oklahoma

Oklahoma State had been hanging tough with the Sooners throughout the game when Hill fielded a punt at the eight-yard line with under a minute to go and the Cowboys down 35-28. Rather than signal for the fair catch, Hill took the kick and raced up the sideline untouched for the touchdown. Cue bedlam. Oklahoma State went on to win on a field goal in the extra frame. As a player, Hill has speed to spare, though his future prospects will hinge on whether he can polish up the rest of his game and take those athletic tools beyond the raw components.

Oklahoma State senior DT James Castleman accepted an invite to the East-West Shrine Game.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler wrote over the summer that Castleman's pursuit in space "gives him hope for the next level." The athletic defensive tackle is graded by that site as a Rds. 4-5 prospect. "The most glaring weakness for Castleman based off his junior tape is his propensity to fall off balance, struggling to stay coordinated through contact and constantly ending up on the ground," Brugler wrote. Oklahoma State hasn't had a DT selected since Kevin Williams was the No. 9 pick in the 2003 NFL Draft.

Oklahoma State junior OW Tyreek Hill had 10 carries for 52 yards in Saturday's loss to Baylor.

It is exceedingly difficult to make an accurate assessment about Hill's pro prospects at this time. Not only is the offensive talent around him mediocre, making it difficult for the shifty runner to find himself in the space his game thrives in, but the prospect himself is far more athletic tools than finished product at this time. Consider his ceiling Tavon Austin, and his floor an effective NFL returner. We won't know which he can become until he gets more help next season.

Oklahoma State junior OW Tyreek Hill is "extremely explosive with rare movement skills," according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

Brugler, however, believes Hill "still needs time to develop in several areas to become a more consistent player and better prospect for the next level." The 5-foot-10, 185-pound Cowboys' prospect has been compared athletically to Percy Harvin and Tavon Austin. To reach those lofty expectations, Hill will need to add strength and clean up the technical aspects of his game.

Oklahoma State redshirt junior QB Daxx Garman could miss Saturday's game against Baylor due to concussion-like symptoms.

Garman has been unable to practice all week and if he is out true freshman Mason Randolph will likely get the start. Garman finished the game against Texas, which ultimately ended in a loss, the Cowboys' fourth straight. The Arizona transfer has played quite well since taking over the starting gig.

When asked whether he supported Oklahoma State HC Mike Gundy, OSU booster Boone Pickens said "I’m always going to be for OSU, I don’t care who coaches ‘em."

Pickens' comment is incredibly non-committal, though he didn't say outright that he wanted Gundy gone. Oklahoma State is 5-4 this season and wraps up their schedule with games against Texas, Baylor and Oklahoma. A strong finish and a possible upset over Baylor would certainly go a long way toward securing the coach's future.

Oklahoma State junior OW Tyreek Hill had 14 carries for 78 yards in Saturday's loss to West Virginia.

He added three catches for 26 yards, one kick return for 14 yards, and three punt returns for five yards. Over the past two games, Oklahoma State's coaches, in an effort to jump-start an atrocious ground attack, have committed to handing the ball off to Hill consistently. His 5.1 YPC average is a far better rate than what his teammates have managed, but not enough to save his draft stock, which has dropped off since peaking after OSU's near upset over Florida State in the opener.
