Stanford graduate RB Barry J. Sanders transferred to Oklahoma State.

Sanders is the son of Heisman-winning Cowboys legend Barry Sanders. "His message to me was to keep an open mind," Sanders said. "I think that he would have wanted me to look at more schools. He definitely didn’t want me to make a decision without considering other options." Set to graduate in the spring, Sanders is eligible to play immediately in 2016. The former four-star recruit out of Oklahoma didn't live up to expectations on the East Coast. Across three seasons, Sanders rushed for 672 yards and five touchdowns, caught 12 passes for 89 yards and averaged 9.5 yards on 10 punt returns. He figures to see the field more often for the Pokes. They don't, after all, have Christian McCaffrey.

ESPN's Travis Haney said Oklahoma State had the second-most disappointing recruiting class.

OSU finished No. 46 in ESPN's class rankings, largely because the Pokes were boxed out of Texas (they signed six Texans after averaging 13 annually over the past three years). OSU hasn't had a top-25 class in several years. "OSU managed a Sugar Bowl berth a year ago, but the decline in recruiting makes you wonder about viability in the not-too-distant future," Haney wrote. The Pokes will once again rely on under-recruited prospects and player development. Three-star QB Keondre Wudtee embodies that approach. Wudtee is a very raw developmental prospect with tremendous tools who will learn behind Mason Rudolph. "He is just really hard to defend," Oklahoma State OC Mike Yurcich said. "In a spread offense, he will be very dynamic."

Colorado State redshirt freshman QB Coleman Key transferred to Oklahoma State.

Key had made the decision to transfer from the Rams in December. He posted his ultimate landing spot on Twitter, saying, "It's finally official, Oklahoma State is my new home and I'll be playing both football and baseball." It was accompanied by a picture of Key with HC Mike Gundy and five Oklahoma State cheerleaders. So that's fun. A three-star recruit out of high school, the 6-foot-4, 220-pounder will have to sit out the next year per NCAA's arcane transfer rules. He appeared in six games for Colorado State this past season, throwing for 251 yards (47.7% completions) and a 3/3 TD/INT ratio while serving as Nick Stevens' backup.

Oklahoma State senior CB Kevin Peterson accepted an invitation to participate in the Senior Bowl.

The 5-foot-11, 190-pound Peterson regressed a bit statistically this year, posting 42 tackles, one interception and six breakups after logging two interceptions, 11 breakups and 59 tackles in 2014. NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter opined over the summer that Peterson "might be one of the toughest" corners in the class but his "draft position will be determined by his timed speed." Get out those stopwatches, gentlemen.

Oklahoma State junior DE Emmanuel Ogbah announced he will enter the 2016 NFL Draft.

Rand Getlin reported as much a month ago. Many rank Ogbah as one of the top five edge rushers in this class, but we are skeptical. Ogbah recorded at least 12 sacks this season and closed the year with a solid game against Ole Miss. He played on 75 percent of the school's defensive snaps this season.

Stanford redshirt junior RB Barry J. Sanders has been granted a release from the Cardinal and will transfer to another program.

Sanders was third on Stanford's depth chart this season behind Christian McCaffrey and Remound Wright. Sanders is on track to graduate this spring, and could be eligible for the 2016 season upon completion. As of now, he is prohibited from transferring to another Pac-12 program, but Oklahoma State could be the front runner for Barry Sanders' son. He rushed for 672 yards and five touchdowns in three seasons.

The Tulsa World's Bill Haisten reports that Oklahoma redshirt junior LB Seth Jacobs might choose to retire due to a chronic shoulder injury

On Twitter, Jacobs himself said that he's currently home with family and would issue a statement Monday night or Tuesday. The 6-foot-2, 225-pound redshirt junior's already earned his communications degree from the university. Over the last two seasons, he's racked up 157 tackles (15 for loss), a sack and four interceptions. Should he decide to retire, junior Devante Averette will likely enter spring practice as the starting weakside linebacker.
Jan 4 - 6:28 PM

Oklahoma State senior QB J.W. Walsh completed 9-of-14 passes for 124 yards while rushing for 74 yards and two touchdowns on 10 carries in Friday's 48-20 loss to Ole Miss in the Allstate Sugar Bowl.

Walsh closed out the game after the Rebels jumped to a 34-6 halftime advantage, taking over for ineffective sophomore QB Mason Rudolph. While a comeback was out of the question, a mini-resurgence occurred under Walsh's guidance. Despite coming on late, he led the Cowboys with his 74 rushing yards. The 6-foot-2, 215-pound senior scooted in for scores from two yards out near the end of the third quarter and eight yards out near the end of the fourth. He finishes his collegiate career having thrown for a total of 3,817 passing yards with a 36/10 TD/INT ratio while rushing for 1,036 yards and 25 touchdowns. It was noted during Friday's broadcast that Walsh wants to coach in the future.
Jan 2 - 12:48 AM

Oklahoma State sophomore QB Mason Rudolph completed 18-of-31 passes for 179 yards in Friday's 48-20 loss to Ole Miss in the Allstate Sugar Bowl.

Rudolph hadn't played since suffering a foot injury against Baylor on November 21. While the appendage didn't appear to give the 6-foot-4, 220-pound sophomore any grief on Friday, he was ultimately ineffective. The Cowboys managed just six points in the first half with Rudolph averaging just 5.8 YPA. They would score a pair of touchdowns in the second half behind senior QB J.W. Walsh. For his part, Rudolph's highlight of the season came when he turned in a sparkling 352-yard, five-touchdown performance to topple then-undefeated TCU on November 7. He still has issues with consistency to iron out, but should post nice numbers in 2016 assuming that he doesn't somehow losing the starting job.

Oklahoma State sophomore QB Mason Rudolph (foot) will start against Ole Miss in Friday's Sugar Bowl showdown.

Rudolph injured his foot in the Cowboys' loss to Baylor on November 21. While he missed the squad's season finale against Oklahoma, the 6-foot-4, 220-pound sophomore's progressed well enough in the off-month that he's been tabbed for the start in the Sugar Bowl. Senior QB J.W. Walsh is also expected to see his share of snaps.
Jan 1 - 7:56 PM

Oklahoma State sophomore QB Mason Rudolph (foot) remains questionable for Friday's showdown with Ole Miss in the Sugar Bowl.

Rudolph suffered his foot injury against Baylor on November 21 and subsequently missed the team's season-finale against Oklahoma. While HC Mike Gundy's publicly held out hope that the 6-foot-4, 220-pound sophomore will be able to suit up, Rudolph remains questionable three days before the Sugar Bowl's set to kick off. J.W. Walsh would start. Even if Rudolph can play, both quarterbacks might see action depending on the flow of the game.

Oklahoma State HC Mike Gundy said he expects senior QB J.W. Walsh "to play at least half the [Sugar Bowl against Ole Miss]."

Sophomore QB Mason Rudolph started 11 of Oklahoma State's 12 games, but suffered a small fracture in his foot against Baylor and is just now healthy enough to resume team practice. Because of this, senior QB J.W. Walsh has seen the majority of work in practice to this point. Said Gundy, "I would say that with the increased role and number of practice reps that J.W.’s gotten, we would expect him to play at least half the game, either way, depending on Mason’s health." The waters will be murkier if Rudolph's able to get back to game speed on short order for the New Year's Day bowl, but at the very least, expect Walsh to play legitimate minutes.

Oklahoma State sophomore QB Mason Rudolph (foot) is out of his walking boot and could resume practicing early next week.

Another great sign for Rudolph, who suffered the foot injury against Baylor on November 21 and didn't play against Oklahoma. Oklahoma State HC Mike Gundy said last week that Rudolph will be healthy for the Jan. 1 bowl matchup against Mississippi and all the tea leaves are pointing to him being right.

Colorado State redshirt freshman QB Coleman Key is transferring from the school.

Key will stay on through Colorado State's showdown with Nevada in the Nova Home Loans Bowl on December 29 before striking out for parts unknown. The 6-foot-4, 220-pound redshirt freshman served as backup quarterback to Nick Stevens during the 2015 campaign. Rivals ranked Key as a three-star recruit out of high school. Should he transfer to another FBS program, he'll have to wait a year before being eligible to play per NCAA rules. A shift down to a lower level would allow him to play immediately.

Oklahoma State HC Mike Gundy believes sophomore QB Mason Rudolph (foot) will be healthy for the school's Jan. 1 bowl matchup against Mississippi.

In addition, Gundy says Blake Jarwin, Jeremy Seaton and Chris Carson will all be healthy for the Sugar Bowl. Rudolph didn't start against Oklahoma due to a foot injury. He underwent surgery about 10 days ago and should be ready to roll against the Rebels.
