Don't be surprised to see some role reversal in Oklahoma State's new offense this season.

Receivers Josh Cooper and Justin Blackmon are among those that new offensive coordinator Dana Holgorsen wants to get the ball. The duo might be lethal weapons on misdirection plays and reverses.

"I'd expect a couple of those guys to get involved in the run game with reverses, fly sweeps and stuff like that," Holgorsen said. "Josh Cooper does some of that stuff, and Justin Blackmon, he doesn't have the body type, (normally) you think of a running back-type-guy, 5-9, fast and shifty. But we did some stuff like that with him in the spring."

Solid Chelf

Receiver Colton Chelf might be a contributor for the Cowboys as a walk-on this season. The senior didn't see any action a year ago but worked his way into the Pokes' two-deep depth chart heading into fall practice.

"He's made some plays in practice," OSU coach Mike Gundy said. "He's played much better in the last three practices than he did in the spring. He's a guy that needs to help us and make a few catches."

Chelf is the older brother of redshirt freshman quarterback Clint Chelf.
