Calvin Bundage Announces He’s Turning Pro

Bundage’s career as a Cowboy is over.



Calvin Bundage’s time as a Cowboy has come to an end.

The redshirt senior pass-rusher announced Saturday that he’s turning pro and taking his talents to the next level, with his next steps focused on NFL Draft preparation.

“After talking with my family, I have decided to take my skills to the next level and declare for the NFL draft,” he announced. “I want to thank my teammates, the coaches and staff at Oklahoma State. I have loved my time in Stillwater. I will forever be a Cowboy!”

Bundage ends his career as one of the most fun pass-rushers to have ever graced Oklahoma State. He flashed signs of brilliance as a freshman in 2016 but really exploded as a sophomore, when in 2017 he played in every game and made nine starts, recording 54 tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss and three sacks. He had a productive junior season in 2018 but missed all of 2019 with a back injury. It was unclear if he’d return, but he did with a bullet, capping his career with a senior season stat line of a career-high 8.5 tackles for loss and a career-high 7.5 sacks — more than all of his previous seasons at OSU combined.

With the pandemic, Bundage could have returned for another season if he had chosen to, but his injury history combined with his career season provides a good launch point to his pro career. And his talents as a pass rusher who can cover sideline to sideline, likely make him a candidate to be drafted later this spring, though he isn’t likely to be a first-round prospect.
