Two More Transfers Likely For Cowboys

It appears that Oklahoma State will have two more transfers in the football program. Go Pokes has learned that one new addition is already on the Oklahoma State campus and another is on the way soon.

Tight end Christian Morgan is on campus and enrolled in school. Morgan was an early enrollee in the spring of 2013 at Ole Miss, coming out of Prestonwood Christian Academy in Plano, Texas.

Meanwhile, Xavier Smith is a graduated senior at Missouri that will fit under the NCAA graduated senior transfer rule. The 5-11, 190-pound Smith is originally from Edmond North High School and was an All-District and All-Big City cornerback.

Smith, who graduated in communications at Missouri, did not show any defensive stats from last season. During the 2012 season he played in nine games and had four tackles. He also played in nine games in 2011 and finished with three tackles. Smith chose Missouri over TCU, Colorado State, Washington State, and Tulsa.

Morgan will be a freshman and is also likely to be eligible immediately. The 6-4, 255-pound former high school offensive lineman turned tight end enrolled early at Ole Miss before suffering a knee injury during spring practice. He was committed at one point to Florida State.

He sat out last season and is now at Oklahoma State. His senior season in high school he caught 31 passes for 497 yards and 5 touchdowns. He had 16 receptions for 226 yards as a junior.

The expectation is both athletes will work out with the team over the summer and prepare for practice in August.
