The Cowboys got a new scholarship player, but he came straight from the roster.

Oklahoma State on Wednesday announced Parker Robertson, formerly a walk-on safety, was put on scholarship heading into his redshirt-junior season. OSU did so with a cool video that featured safeties coach Dan Hammerschmidt and Mike Gundy.

Robertson was voted a team captain for the Cowboys’ 2023 squad. He was a core part to the Cowboys’ special teams efforts, finishing the year with 12 tackles and a huge fumble recovery that flipped the Cowboys’ fortunes in Morgantown. OSU trailed the Mountaineers 24-20 heading into the fourth quarter last season before Robertson was quick to react and get ahold of a muffed punt. That sprung the Cowboys to outscoring WVU 28-10 in the fourth quarter to secure the win.

Robertson joined the program as a walk-on ahead of the 2021 season out of Dallas Christian. He redshirted as the Cowboys won the Fiesta Bowl before taking part in 12 of OSU’s 13 games in 2022, finishing the year with seven tackles.
