OSU football: Arkansas transfer Collin Clay picks Cowboys

STILLWATER — Oklahoma State added to its recruiting class with Arkansas transfer defensive end Collin Clay, who announced his decision on Twitter Monday afternoon.

Clay was a four-star recruit out of Putnam City High School a year ago, with OSU among his final choices. He also had offers from Georgia, Florida, Oregon, Michigan and others.

The 6-foot-5, 285-pound Clay played in 11 of 12 games for Arkansas as a true freshman. He had 17 tackles, playing 324 total snaps.

Unless Clay is granted a waiver, he will have to sit out next season because of NCAA transfer rules. At that point, Clay would have three years of eligibility beginning in the 2021 season.

He joins a defensive line that had only one senior this season, defensive end Mike Scott.
