Oklahoma State football notebook: Clint Chelf, J.W. Walsh in same backfield new to Cowboys coach Mike Gundy

“It felt real good to put on the game uniform again and get back out there,” he said. “It felt good to be out there with my friends and teammates. I'm ready to play a real game now.”

YOUNG WRS IMPRESS

The white team had the deeper quarterback pairing with Walsh and Lunt, but less-experienced receivers. Yet it gave Jhajuan Seales and Brandon Sheperd a chance to shine.

Seales, a 6-foot-2, 185-pound redshirt freshman, had a team-high six catches for 49 yards, and 6-foot-1, 195-pound sophomore Sheperd had five catches for 43 yards.

SCARE FOR GLIDDEN

Another young receiver who got plenty of action was sophomore David Glidden. Having battled injuries throughout his career, Glidden got a scare on his first catch of the day, when he appeared to suffer a lower leg injury.

He eventually walked off on his own power and seemed to be back at full speed when he returned. The Mustang product finished with four catches for 28 yards. He could factor in as a slot receiver and punt returner.

VEATCH MOVES INSIDE

When OSU landed Zac Veatch from Broken Arrow in the 2012 recruiting class, it appeared to be a boost for the tight end corps.

Now listed at 290 pounds, the 6-foot-4 redshirt freshman finds himself at center, where he started for the orange team Saturday and can help add depth at a key position.
