The Cowboys picked up their first transfer portal commitment of the 2023 cycle Wednesday, and it was a big one.

Justin Wright, a 6-foot-2, 244-pound linebacker from Tulsa, announced his commitment to Oklahoma State after leading the Golden Hurricane in tackles this past season.

As a senior in 2022, Wright had 101 tackles, 10.5 tackles for loss, two sacks, two interceptions, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery. He had a quartet of double-digit tackle games, including 13-tackle performances against Wyoming, Navy and Memphis. He was named an All-AAC Second Team selection.

In 39 games in his Tulsa career, Wright had 254 tackles, 27.5 tackles for loss, 7.5 sacks and four interceptions.

Originally out of Abilene, Texas, Wright was a two-star prospect in the 2018 class. He chose to play at Tulsa over offers from Texas State, UTEP, Louisiana-Monroe and Nevada.

This is big news for the Pokes, as Wright could slot right in as a starter in Stillwater with Mason Cobb, the Cowboys’ leading tackler in 2022, entering the transfer portal. OSU also lost scholarship LB Na’Drian Dizadare to the portal this week.
