Spring Practice: Changes To The Roster

There were some changes to the Oklahoma State football roster announced Monday. OSU released the official spring roster, and it includes some changes from our spring football previews.

Let's start with deletions or players no longer with the team.

You knew about wide receiver RaShaad Samples and now you can officially add Blake Webb to that list. Webb has not been with the team in several weeks.

Junior college transfer Matt Kellerman went home a couple of weeks ago and despite the efforts of several coaches he has stayed there. He is done for now and likely for good.

Daxx Garman, as previously discussed, has decided to graduate in May and then look for a school where he would have a chance to start at quarterback.

Devin Davis was still trying during the offseason but he is no longer listed on the roster and is likely taking a medical scholarship and won't play anymore.

In case you missed it, linebacker Demarcus Sherod is taking a medical scholarship as well after another shoulder injury. The same for Victor Irokansi as the defensive end suffered a knee injury in the Bedlam game and he will go on medical scholarship.

As for additions, the only two that we saw of significance are at running back.

Mark Brown is a transfer from Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas. Brown is a 5-10, 185-pound freshman transfer that will have to sit out. He is from Katy (Seven Lakes), Texas and is listed as having run a 4.34 in the forty in high school. That time was listed on his high school Hudl page.

Keegan Metcalf was at Oklahoma State in the fall. A transfer from Oklahoma Baptist after playing running back and linebacker in high school at Elk City, Metcalf played linebacker in 2013 at OBU and had 46 tackles (23 unassisted), six tackles for 23 yards in losses, a sack, and a fumble recovery.

In the fall he played running back on the scout team and was credited with making the defense a lot better. He runs hard and is a very strong runner at 5-10, 210 pounds. I would not go to sleep on him and would not be surprised to see him playing and at the least making an impression on special teams.

Now for position changes, there are not many. In fact, Gundy said there would not be much experimenting of moving players during spring. Caleb Muncrief is back at running back after spending last season at slot receiver. Blake Jarwin will also play fullback along with tight end like Jeremy Seaton.
