Offensive Line Transfer Bryce Bray Says he’s Headed to Tulsa

Bryce Bray is headed to his hometown school.



Bryce Bray could be standing on Boone Pickens Stadium’s visiting sideline Sept. 12.

After being dismissed from Oklahoma State for violating team rules, Bray committed to Tulsa on Wednesday, he announced via Twitter. It’s familiar territory for Bray, who played his high school ball at Bixby.

It’s a big get for the Golden Hurricane, as Bray was expected to be a big part of the Cowboys’ offensive line for years to come after an impressive first few seasons on campus.

Bray started in 10 games for the Cowboys as a redshirt freshman in 2019. He is a guy who can, and did, play all along the offensive line. For the Cowboys last season, he made starts at right tackle, left tackle and right guard.

He was the No. 617 player in the 2018 class, initially picking the Cowboys over offers from Oklahoma, Iowa State, Tulsa, Nevada and Arkansas State.

Bray’s move to TU came quickly. He announced he was in the transfer portal Thursday and came out of it Wednesday. It’s an interesting story line that Bray is going to the first team on OSU’s 2020 schedule, but it’s highly unlikely he’ll be eligible to play right away.

The Cowboys and Golden Hurricane will, though, meet again in 2021, where Bray should be a key guy for TU.

He’ll reunite with former OSU Cowboy back Grayson Boomer, who also transferred from OSU to TU in the past year.

As for the Cowboys, they’ll need some guys to step up on the offensive line. The Cowboys will return only one regular starter from last season’s team in tackle Teven Jenkins. Ry Schneider is expected to fill in at center, and West Virginia transfer Josh Sills has long been expected to start at a guard.

Redshirt sophomores Hunter Anthony and Hunter Woodard and redshirt freshman Cole Birmingham are other names to keep an eye on heading into the shortened 2020 season.

“Younger players will have to compete,” OSU coach Mike Gundy said Monday. “It happens at times. Hopefully we’ll have some of those guys have a good few weeks before we play the first game against Tulsa.”
