Oklahoma State Offers Junior College Tight End Austin Jarrard

An immediately-eligible junior college transfer.

Oklahoma State is expecting some turnover at Cowboy Back in 2021 and its coaching staff has its eye on an intriguing junior college tight end to fill that need.

Austin Jarrad, a 2021 tight end prospect, was offered by the Cowboys — according to his offensive coordinator. Coach Ryan Gomes, the OC at American River Community College, tweeted the announcement on Wednesday.

Who is He?

Jarrad is a versatile flex tight end who spent 2019 at American River C.C. in his hometown of Sacramento. He weights in at 245 pounds and boasts a rangy 6-foot-4 frame.

Others Involved

Rivals has reported that Jarrad’s offers include Texas Tech, UCF, UAB, Eastern Carolina, Western Kentucky, Liberty and nearby Sacramento State. No major recruiting service has yet reported an Oklahoma State offer.

In the Rankings

Jarrad is not yet ranked by any of the major recruiting services. But his size and growing offer list are sure to see that change over his final year in the junior college ranks.

OSU Will Be Looking for TEs

Jelani Woods, the QB-turned-Cowboy Back that is expected to top OSU’s depth chart in 2020, is set to exhaust his eligibility in 2021. Perhaps Jarrad can do enough during his first year in Stillwater to push for reps and into the front of the line to replace Woods in 2022. OSU has yet to land a tight end commitment for the 2021 class

His Highlights

A look at Jarrad’s film reveals an effective blocker who can offer run support and pass protection who can also run a route or two and pick you up the occasion first down. A quick first look recalls Year 2 Blake Jarwin. Given the development he’ll gain from one final year at ARC and Jarrad could step right into Woods’ absence in two years.
