Former Millwood defensive tackle Israel Antwine had nearly twenty scholarship offers coming out of high school, including one from Oklahoma State. The Cowboys thought they had him locked up until a twelfth-hour coup stole him to Colorado. Now, due to defensive coaching changes made by the Buffs, Antwine is once more heading for Stillwater.
The 6-foot-4, 290-pound Antwine started all but one game, primarily as a defensive end, at Colorado as a true freshman this past season. Because of the major overhaul of the coaching and support staff at Colorado, OSU has informed Antwine that he could possibly be granted a hardship waiver from the NCAA to be eligible immediately, rather than having to sit out a season, as required with a typical transfer. – NewsOK
As first reported by The Oklahoman, not only is Antwine transferring to Oklahoma State, he’s already on campus in Stillwater. With the ability to play any position along the defensive line, being granted a hardship waver would be crucial to Oklahoma State in 2019. As of right now the Cowboy would enter the season thin at the defensive end position.
