PORTAL TRACKER

It has been a crazy few weeks for college football with the transfer portal opening and then overflowing with players looking for greener pastures.

Oklahoma State, like just about every other program around the country, is having to deal with the effects of some of its players looking to go elsewhere, but the Cowboys have also sent out a few earlier offers. Oklahoma State was active in the transfer market before the portal officially opened Dec. 5 — sending out offers to a pair of Tulsa defenders and a pair of Ivy Leaguers — but here is a look at guys who have announced offers after the Dec. 5 opening. This list will be updated as more offers come out.

Arland Bruce IV

Position: WR
School: Iowa
Hometown: Olathe, Kansas

A four-star prospect in the 2021 recruiting class, Arland Bruce caught 44 passes for 396 yards and two touchdowns in two seasons with the Hawkeyes. He also ran the ball 21 times for 116 yards and four more scores.

Listed as a 5-foot-10, 198-pound sophomore on Iowa’s 2022 roster, Bruce played in 11 games this past season where he caught 19 passes for 187 yards and a touchdown.

Playing his high school senior season at Ankeny High School in Iowa, Bruce committed to Iowa as a high school junior over offers from Iowa State, Tulsa and Western Illinois.

Since entering the transfer portal, he also has reported offers to Fresno State and Tulane.

Tyrone Broden

Position: WR
School: Bowling Green
Hometown: Detroit, Michigan

Listed at a towering 6-foot-7, 210 pounds, Broden has 1,102 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns across the past two seasons for Bowling Green. He had two 100-yard receiving games as a redshirt sophomore in 2021, catching four passes for 111 yards and two touchdowns against Akron and four passes for 110 yards and two touchdowns against Buffalo.

Out of West Bloomfield High School, Broden was a three-star prospect in the 2019 class with offers from Iowa State, Indiana, Purdue, Syracuse and others before going to Bowling Green.

Since hitting the portal, Broden also has offers from Oklahoma, Texas A&M, Houston, Arkansas, West Virginia, Colorado, Washington State, Syracuse and Pitt.

Josiah Johnson (COMMITTED TO OKLAHOMA STATE)

Position: TE
School: UMass
Hometown: Jacksonville, Florida

Across the past four seasons with the Minutemen, Johnson has caught 50 passes for 465 yards and five touchdowns while also running for a pair of scores. He has also spent time as a quarterback with UMass. Against Arkansas State this past season, Johnson caught eight passes for 58 yards, both career highs.

Johnson hasn’t announced any other portal offers as of writing.

Marcellus Johnson (COMMITTED TO MISSOURI)

Position: OL
School: Eastern Michigan
Hometown: Normal, Illinois

Johnson has one year of eligibility remaining after appearing in every game over the last four seasons for Eastern Michigan and starting every game at left tackle the last three. Would be a huge get for the Cowboys.

The 6-foot-4, 308-pound left tackle entered the transfer portal on Dec. 29 and has since announced a slew of Power Five offers that include BYU (almost), Cal, Louisville, Missouri, Kansas, Illinois and Wisconsin with the Cowboys throwing their hat in the ring Friday evening. Out of high school he held offers from Indiana State, North Dakota and Wyoming.

Justin Kirkland (COMMITTED TO OKLAHOMA STATE)

Position: DT
School: Utah Tech
Hometown: Roy, Utah

The Cowboys continue to try to fill some gaps along their defensive front. Kirkland, a 6-foot-4, 295-pound defensive tackle, hails from Utah Tech in the WAC where he’s been on the roster since 2020. Due to taking time on his LDS mission trip, he has three years of eligibility left. Utah Tech’s willingness to hold his offer while on that mission is what he credited for his decision. The school’s website bio states he was recruited by Utah, BYU, Utah State and others but Utah Tech was his only offer according to 247, likely due to his other obligations.

Kirkland has since tweeted out offers from fellow Big 12 schools Cincinnati and Kansas State. He announced an official visit to Stillwater next week.

Tez Johnson (COMMITTED TO OREGON)

Position: WR
School: Troy
Hometown: Pinson, Alabama

The 5-foot-10, 150-pound wideout plays bigger than his size indicates and he’s a big play waiting to happen. Johnson totaled 863 yards and four touchdowns on 56 catches. He’s been Troy’s leading receiver the last two seasons and played all 11 games as a true freshman the year before that. Thanks to the NCAA’s Covid-19 waiver, Johnson would have two years of eligibility remaining.

He is the No. 4-rated wide receiver this season according to Pro Football Focus, holding an offensive grade of 89.9. OSU’s highest-rated receiver this season has been Stephon Johnson Jr at a 60.4.

Johnson announced he was entering the transfer portal on Dec. 20. As of writing, Johnson has also received offers from Cincinnati, Penn State and Indiana. He is the adopted younger brother of Oregon (and former Auburn) quarterback Bo Nix.

Drae McCray (COMMITTED TO TEXAS TECH)

Position: WR
School: Austin Peay
Hometown: Tallahassee, Florida

A 5-foot-9, 177-pound sophomore, Drae McCray led Austin Peay this season with 76 catches for 1,021 yards and nine touchdowns. Austin Peay also used him as a runner from time to time, where he had 12 carries for 54 yards. McCray had four games with at least 100 receiving yards this season, including a 166-yard performance against Murray State and a 158-yard performance against Mississippi Valley State.

As a high school recruit, McCray was listed as a running back. A three-star prospect, McCray chose Austin Peay over offers from Buffalo, Coastal Carolina, Arkansas State, Georgia Southern and others. He finished his high school career with 4,358 all-purpose yards.
