Pines is an FCS national champ.

The transfer portal had been a one-way street for the Cowboys this offseason, but not anymore.

Prince Pines, an offensive line transfer from Sam Houston, announced a commitment to Oklahoma State on Monday, becoming the third lineman in the past two days to commit to OSU. Listed at 6-foot-5, 340 pounds, Pines was an All-American at the FCS level in 2021, according to Phil Steele. He was a member of the Bearkats’ 2020-21 national championship team, as well.

Pines started his college career at Baylor. A member of the 2018 recruiting class, Pines picked Baylor over offers from Arkansas, Texas Tech, TCU, Ole Miss, Missouri, Mississippi State and others. After redshirting in 2018, Pines played in all 14 of the Bears’ 2019 games before transferring to Sam Houston and starting every game available at left guard.

After entering the transfer portal, Pines announced offers from OSU, Mississippi State, Colorado and others.

OSU lost starting left guard Josh Sills and starting center Danny Godlevske to graduation. Four scholarship linemen have also entered the portal, making the Cowboys thin along the offensive line this offseason. Pines should certainly help with that.

Pines is part of a group of transfers set to help shore up things along OSU’s offensive front. USC transfer Casey Collier and Vanderbilt transfer Jason Brooks committed to OSU on Sunday.
