impressed coaches as an end in the fall, and for a while they considered using him as a true freshman. Now, he’s ready to contribute, adding both depth and versatility.

→Offensive line: There could be as many as three openings on the offensive line, and that’s a big deal, considering that the starting five played virtually every meaningful snap this season.

After playing as a true freshman, center Grant Garner was able to redshirt this year, so he still has three years of eligibility. Tackle Andrew Mitchell continues to develop after coming in from junior college. Guard Jonathan Rush has made perhaps the most growth of any of the backups.

→Wide receiver: None of OSU’s current players graduate, but Jeremy Broadway was dismissed two weeks ago, and it’s hard to project how William Cole will perform in his return from ACL surgery. So the Cowboys could use some more depth. Ardmore product Justin Blackmon has stood out during the year. Both Isaiah Anderson and Adrian Richards have grown up, too.
