One of the best receivers in college football is done for the year.

Oklahoma State’s Tylan Wallace will miss the rest of the 2019 season with a torn ACL suffered during practice on Wednesday afternoon. The Oklahoman confirmed the diagnosis on Friday as the Cowboys prepare for their Saturday showdown with TCU.

Wallace, a junior, reportedly went down during a non-contact play on Wednesday, landing awkwardly on his leg and leaving practice. He experienced swelling and had an MRI on Thursday, with the torn ACL diagnosis being confirmed on Friday.

Wallace leads the Big 12 in receiving yards and receiving yards per game while sitting second in receiving touchdowns and receptions per game. He is in the top 10 nationally for both receiving yards (No. 4) and receiving yards per game (No. 7). On the season, the junior wideout has 53 receptions for 903 yards and eight touchdowns.

Wallace was an All-American last season and almost certain to repeat in 2019. He is also a Biletnikoff Award nominee, an honor for which he was a finalist a year ago. Wallace is currently projected as one of the 10 best wideouts in a 2020 NFL Draft loaded with receiving talent.

Oklahoma State (5-3) hosts TCU (4-3) at Boone Pickens Stadium in Stillwater on Saturday. Kickoff is at 2:30 PM.
