Oklahoma State Football Adds Two Transfers
STILLWATER – Oklahoma State head football coach Mike Gundy has announced the signing of two student-athletes to National Letters of Intent.
Joining the OSU program are Jones County (Miss.) Community College defensive end Ryan Robinson and Navarro Community College offensive lineman Michael Bowie. Both of the newcomers will begin class at Oklahoma State in January and participate in spring drills.
“Both Ryan and Michael are quality people and they are excited about being part of the Oklahoma State football program,” Gundy said. “We are excited about them as well and we expect both of them to improve our team on the field next season.”
Robinson and Bowie both originally signed with OSU in February of 2009.
Bowie is a local product. He attended Charles Page High School in Sand Springs. He was one of seven signees from the state of Oklahoma in 2009. He was an all-district, all-metro and all-state selection as a prepster and was listed as the nation’s 30th best offensive tackle by Rivals.com as a senior. He allowed just two sacks over his final two years of high school. During his senior season, the Sandites averaged 433 yards of total offense.
He was a high school teammate of current Cowboy quarterback Johnny Deaton.
At Navarro, Bowie played on a national championship team that just completed an 11-1 season. He is rated as the 32nd best junior college player in the country, regardless of position.
Robinson is from Buford, Ga. He attended Mill Creek High School and was an all-region and all-county selection in Georgia’s largest classification. His senior season statistics included 85 tackles, including 14 behind the line of scrimmage.
At Jones County, Robinson was 10th in the country with 10.5 quarterback sacks as a freshman. He was an all-region selection as a sophomore with 64 tackles, 13 tackles for loss and eight sacks in nine games. He was named the most valuable defensive lineman in the MACJC South Division.
