OSU Offensive Lineman Caleb Etienne Transferring to BYU

Etienne finds a new home, and quickly.

In the words of the great Ron Burgundy: that escalated quickly.

Days after hitting the transfer portal, OSU offensive lineman Caleb Etienne, who started every game last season for the Cowboys at left tackle, announced on Monday he has already found a new home and committed to BYU. Etienne announced the news on Twitter with the caption “HOME.”

Etienne likely figured to be a key piece of depth for an OSU offensive line that is returning a lot of experience, but it appears as if OSU was no longer a good fit for him. That may have been, at least according to Mike Gundy, because his role could have been diminished in 2023.

“He felt like he got beat out, so he left,” said Gundy on Monday to the media. “But that’s his choice.”

Gundy added that he’s “not a big fan” of the portal in the spring because it’s “extremely difficult to replace roster numbers.” But despite that, OSU was able to do exactly that this weekend, landing a commitment from junior college tackle Jarrett Henry to fill in as a depth piece and hopefully as a challenger to push for playing time at tackle.
