Former Cowboy Jacob Farrell Transferring to North Texas

A former Poke won’t stray far from home to finish his college career.



Jacob Farrell wasn’t on the market long.

Less than a week after Farrell, a former lineman for Oklahoma State, announced that he was on the transfer portal, he committed to North Texas.

Farrell and Bryce Bray entered the transfer portal at similar times last week after both were dismissed for violating team rules.

Farrell was listed at 6-foot-6, 313 pounds on OSU’s fall camp roster. He played in two games in 2019, his redshirt freshman season.

Out of Sulphur, Farrell was a three-star recruit ranked 723rd in the 2018 class and the No. 12 player out of Oklahoma that year. He initially chose OSU over offers from Texas Tech, TCU, Kansas and others.

With Farrell and Bray exiting (added onto the early retirement of Dylan Galloway this offseason) the Cowboys are suddenly looking to replace a lot up front. Teven Jenkins is the only returning regular starter to the position group. Ry Shneider and Josh Sills have been projected starters all offseason, but now it looks as if two spots could be up for grabs.

Hunter Anthony, Cole Birmingham and Hunter Woodard are some names to look out for.

Anthony started in four games last season as a redshirt freshman, starting a game at right tackle and three at right guard.

Birmingham was a true freshman in 2019, and didn’t play at all. He was a three-star prospect in OSU’s 2018 recruiting class and was the No. 601 player in his class.

Woodard played in seven games in 2019, his redshirt freshman season, but the bulk of his work came on special teams.

“We have some young guys that are gonna play for the first time, so obviously, you’ll be into adjustments,” OSU coach Mike Gundy said Monday. “Guys that are young aren’t gonna play as good as experienced guys. But one thing we talk about all the time in our program is, you never know when your chance is gonna be there. So now we have a couple young guys that have to step up and play. Everybody else has to make those adjustments, and coaches have to make the adjustments just like the players.

“We just push forward and stay the course.”
