OSU football: Landon Wolf steps up in Tylan Wallace's absence
STILLWATER — With the loss of star receiver Tylan Wallace, Oklahoma State’s receivers have adjusted.
Dillon Stoner is now Spencer Sanders’ top target the past two games. But another slot receiver has stepped up as well — Landon Wolf.
The former walk-on has six catches for 34 yards the past two games. It’s nothing necessarily flashy, but it’s crucial to the offense.
“You have to make some changes, other guys have to make changes that they’re a little bit uncustom and Dillon’s done a great job,” OSU coach Mike Gundy said. “Wolf’s been in there and obviously Landon has given us a threat at the other side of the ball. And then the other guys are playing their role.”

Wolf caught four passes Saturday against Kansas, equaling his season high. He also caught four passes at Oregon State.
He’s up to 20 receptions and 157 yards, with Iowa State being the lone game he did not catch a pass. It’s a steady output for the Tulsa East Central product.
“Wolf has a great backstory where he's fought back since he's gotten here and where he's at now,” Stoner said. “I think a lot of guys respect that guy.”
