De’Zhaun Stribling is doing the reverse Dez Bryant.

Oklahoma State updated its football roster for this upcoming spring, meaning we now know what numbers newcomers will be wearing. The update also revealed some returners switching digits, with the most notable being Stribling going from No. 88 (the number Bryant wore with the Dallas Cowboys) to No. 1 (the number Bryant wore in Stillwater).

Other number changes include redshirt freshman running back Sesi Vailahi going from No. 20 to No. 3 and emerging walk-on safety Parker Robertson trading in No. 39 for No. 8.

Here is at OSU’s scholarship newcomers — whether that be from high school or via the transfer portal:

No. Name Position Class Height Weight
4 AJ Green RB Sr 5-10 210
8 Maealiuaki Smith QB Fr 6-4 200
14 Landyn Cleveland S Fr 6-0 185
16 Tre Griffiths WR Fr 6-3 200
16 Willie Nelson S Fr 5-8 170
18 Kobe Hylton S R-Sr 6-0 210
37 David Kabongo S Fr 5-10 185
40 Josh Ford TE Fr 6-6 240
46 Temerrick Johnson LB Fr 6-3 195
72 Isaia Glass OL R-Jr 6-4 305
86 Tyler Foster TE R-Sr 6-6 245
92 Obi Ezeigbo DE R-Sr 6-2 245
94 Armstrong Nnodim DE Fr 6-2 270

The standouts from this list start with quarterback Maealuiaki Smith rocking No. 8. He wore No. 7 at Junipero Serra, but Alan Bowman currently has that number locked down.

From a measurements standpoint, freshman wide receiver Tre Griffiths stands out. Back on signing day I tabbed Griffiths as my favorite of the class, and he comes in listed among the biggest receivers on OSU’s roster at 6-foot-3, 200 pounds. Griffiths and Mason Gilkey are the only OSU receivers listed at 6-3 or taller, but Griffiths has 30 pounds on Gilkey, according to the spring roster. Now, there are receiver bigger than Griffiths — Rashod Owens, for example, is listed at 6-2, 230 (what a tank). But with how physically imposing Stribling looked on the outside last season, Griffiths is listed at the same weight and an inch taller.

Freshman defensive end Armstrong Nnodim also has some unique measurements at 6-2, 270. Comparing Nnodim to Kody Walterscheid, Walterscheid is listed at 275, but he is five inches taller than Nnodim. DeSean Brown played quite a bit last season, he is listed at 6-2 like Nnodim, but 20 pounds lighter at 250.

The Feels Like 45 guys did an awesome thread about some of the differences between last season’s roster and this season’s roster on Twitter, which you should totally check out. But here are some of the notable differences:

Kendal Daniels was listed at 213 pounds last season. He’s listed at 230 heading into 2024. That’s one large safety.

There are also some freshmen from last season up big numbers after a year in Rob Glass’ weight room. Tywon Wray Jr. is up 25 pounds to 215, Jalen Pope is up 20 pounds to 205 and Jaedon Foreman is up 30 pounds to 280. That’s a lot of weight to pack on.
