With Kalib Boone, Moussa Cisse, Tyreek Smith and Woody Newton transferring out, Oklahoma State needs frontcourt depth for the 2023-24 season and is inching closer to getting exactly that.

The Cowboys over the weekend were included as one of the finalists for Arizona State big man Warren Washington, a transfer who would be immediately eligible next season. Washington is also considering TCU, Texas Tech, Arkansas, Memphis and Michigan, according to Jon Rothstein.

Washington, a 7-foot, 215-pound center, began his career at Oregon State before transferring to Nevada. He spent three seasons there before transferring to Arizona State last year to finish his undergraduate schooling. With the Sun Devils, he started all 34 games and averaged 9.2 points, 6.9 rebounds to go with a career-high 1.8 blocks per game.

Replacing Cisse’s production down low likely stands as the most difficult challenge for OSU’s coaching staff this offseason. Cisse led OSU in blocks at 1.9 per game last season and was one of the league’s most forceful shot-blockers throughout the season.

OSU has an incoming potential star in freshman Brandon Garrison, the Oklahoma Gatorade Player of the Year who should soak up most if not all of Kalib Boone’s outgoing production, but pairing him next to a vet who has size — like Washington — would be a nice fit for OSU as it rejiggers its roster this offseason.
