Sophomore Justin Gilbert made a name for himself as a kick returner during his freshman season at Oklahoma State.
This spring, the Cowboys are hoping Gilbert begins making a name for himself as a cornerback. At 6-foot, 193 pounds, Gilbert has the size and the elite speed which defensive coordinators covet nationwide.
A offensive standout at Huntsville (Texas) High School, Gilbert made the transition from quarterback to cornerback last season. Gilbert saw spot duty on defense during his true freshman season.
“When he first got here he was a quarterback, he’d played on the offensive side of the ball,” cornerbacks coach Jason Jones said. “It took some time to get adjusted, learn techniques and the defense.”
