Former Cowboy Starting Offensive Lineman Enters Transfer Portal After Violation Of Team Rules
The Oklahoma State offensive line has taken another hit as one time starting guard out of in-state powerhouse Bixby, Bryce Bray, has entered his name into the transfer portal on Thursday.
Bray marks the second offensive linemen this week to enter the transfer portal as fellow redshirt sophomore Jacob Farrell announced his departure just a few days ago.
Pokes Report has learned that both players were told to leave the program after a violation of team rules.
The transfer of both of these players opens the doors to a large group of young promising names to crack the depth chart and even chance to earn some playing time.
Bray, a 6-4, 310-pound guard out of Bixby (OK) High School, spent his freshman season on the sidelines as a redshirt, but played in 13 games this past season, starting 10. While it was still early into fall camp, Bray was also expected to be one of the starting offensive line this season.
The depth of the offensive line will be put to the test during this fall camp. However, according to offensive line coach Charlie Dickey, redshirt sophomores Hunter Woodard and Hunter Anthony are both progressing nicely.
Tyrese Williams has improved and overall the youth on the offensive line from the 2018 and 2019 recruiting classes is bringing much more depth and competition to the practices. It's a definite iron sharpening iron process with one month before the Cowboys' season-opener against Tulsa.
Both Bray and Farrell came to Oklahoma State in the 2018 class, with Farrell coming out of the small southern Oklahoma town of Sulphur. As Bray, Farrell redshirted his first season in Stillwater and both will be looking to find new landing spots.
