Former Kansas CB Tyler Patmon transfers to Oklahoma State, eligible immediately

Oklahoma State’s cornerback depth got a boost Monday when the school announced former Kansas starter Tyler Patmon has transferred to OSU for his final season of eligibility.

Patmon has graduated from Kansas, which made him eligible to transfer to any school and play immediately as long as he enrolled in a graduate program not offered at Kansas.

Patmon was a three-year starter at Kansas, recording six interceptions, 22 pass breakups and 142 tackles (11.5 for loss) during his Jayhawk career. That means he will likely challenge immediately for the starting cornerback job opposite Justin Gilbert, a spot sophomores Kevin Peterson and Ashton Lampkin battled for during the spring after Brodrick Brown finished his eligibility in 2012.

The Cowboys had just four scholarship cornerbacks participate in spring football in Gilbert, Peterson, Lampkin and Miketavious Jones, after Jonovan Griffin left the program in December and Devin Hedgepeth called it a career after tearing his Achilles tendon three times in less than a year.

OSU also officially announced Monday that offensive lineman Colby Hegwood has transferred to the school from Pearl River Community College in Mississippi.
