Oklahoma State defensive tackle Calvin Barnett was named the Big 12 Defensive Newcomer of the Year in a vote by the league’s coaches.

Barnett was a consistent difference-maker on the interior for OSU this season, tallying 29 tackles (7.5 for loss), one sack, four quarterback hurries and one pass break-up.

Barnett, a Tulsa Washington product who transferred from Navarro Junior College, is the first OSU player to earn the conference’s Big 12 Defensive Newcomer of the Year honor.
