Oklahoma State center Evan Epstein earns scholarship
Evan Epstein, Oklahoma State’s projected starting center heading into 2012, has been put on scholarship, an OSU spokesman told The Oklahoman on Wednesday.
Epstein, a senior, walked on at OSU in 2009 after spending one season at Air Force. He sat out his first season in Stillwater due to NCAA transfer rules, then played sparingly in 2010 and 2011 during Grant Garner’s time as OSU’s starting center. Epstein mostly saw action on special teams and took the occasional snap at right guard.
Epstein beat out sophomore Jake Jenkins to top the depth chart at center entering fall camp.
“I want to be the smartest center, I want to be the strongest center and the most physical and the most in shape,” Epstein said during spring practice. “There are so many different aspects that I personally want to strive to succeed. Every day, I come out here and I try to focus on one thing at a time, but I want it to culminate into something special.”
