Oklahoma State football: Denton Guyer product Jimmy Bean joins J.W. Walsh, Josh Stewart as promising Cowboys

So OSU redshirted him, allowing his knee time to completely heal. And it started to feel full strength, Bean said, right after the bowl game, giving him time to train for spring ball.

It has showed, not just in Saturday's game.

“He's had a good offseason,” OSU coach Mike Gundy said. “He has a long way to go, but he has a good frame, a good motor and his attitude is really good.”

And as long as he stays healthy, the former three-star lineman should have a chance to make a big impact.

Bean is a lanky 6-foot-5, tall for a defensive end, and 245 pounds, describing his style with one word: “I'm just speed, a speed rusher. Speed, that's all it is.”

And that rare skill set gives him a chance to continue the Denton Guyer legacy in 2013, adding a sprinkle of North Texas to the defensive side of the ball.

“In the beginning, it was tough,” Bean said of watching his former high school teammates play well without him last year. “But now it just motivates me to come out and shine with them, be part of the three.”
