— Last season, Joseph Randle continued his assault of the Oklahoma State record books, climbing into the top 10 in school history in rushing yards, rushing touchdowns and scoring before leaving for the NFL.

A group of Cowboys — led by the receiving duo of Josh Stewart and Tracy Moore and kick return dynamo Justin Gilbert — have a chance to make a similar mark in 2013.

Here's a breakdown:

Josh Stewart

The scoop

Pretty remarkable when the numbers are laid out there, huh?

Stewart's breakout 2012 season vaulted him into elite company, already becoming one of the top 10 receivers at a school that has produced some truly outstanding pass-catchers.

Ideally, OSU would like to use Stewart less this coming season, because there is plenty of talent surrounding him and coaches would like to keep their top target fresh. Still, Stewart can be used in such a variety of ways that he's likely to continue to rapidly climb those charts.

Tracy Moore

Receiving yards

2011 total: 672

Career total: 1,326

Current place in record books: 16th, ahead of Bobby Riley (1,229) and behind Alonzo Mays (1,372)

If matches 2011 production, updated career total: 1,998

Projected spot in record books: Eighth, ahead of Hermann Eben (1,973) and behind Adarius Bowman (2,187)
