For the second time on Saturday, Oklahoma State adds much-needed talent to its receiving corps.

Former Iowa wide receiver Arland Bruce IV announced that he would continue his career in Stillwater. This news came less than an hour after 2023 wide receiver Tykie Andrews announced his OSU pledge.

Bruce is a 5-foot-10, 198-pound playmaker. An Olathe, Kansas product, he committed to Iowa as a four-star prospect and was ranked as the No. 21 athlete in the 2021 class. He chose the Hawkeyes over offers from Iowa State, Tulsa and Western Illinois.

Bruce played both running back and receiver in high school and has shown that versatility in the Big Ten. As a sophomore in 2022, Bruce ranked fourth on the team with 19 catches for 187 receiving yards and caught one touchdown pass. He ranked fifth in rushing, taking 12 carries for 47 yards and another score. He was also Iowa’s second-leading punt returner.

Bruce comes to OSU with two years of eligibility remaining and has not yet used a redshirt year, but there should be plenty of targets to be had this spring. OSU lost five scholarship receivers for the transfer portal, including four of its top five receivers.

But, with Bruce, the Cowboys now have five incoming scholarship receivers to take their place. On the way are 2023 high school receivers Andrews and Cam Heard as well as Washington State standout De’Zhaun Stribling and D-III All-American Leon Johnson III
