The Oklahoma State football program received fantastic news on Wednesday afternoon as standout wide receiver Tylan Wallace announced that he would be returning for his senior season in the fall.
Wallace finished the year with 53 catches for 903 yards and 8 touchdowns in just 8 games before he tore his ACL and was forced to miss the final 5 games of the season, including the Texas Bowl. Prior to the injury, he was considered the favorite to win the Biletnikoff Award, which is given to the nation’s best receiver, and he will likely be the preseason favorite to win it next year.
Wallace’s decision could have further implications as it could sway sophomore running back Chuba Hubbard to come back next season as well. Hubbard is expected to make his decision in the next week, and if he does does in fact come back, the Cowboy offense will have a lot of experience at the skill positions, allowing quarterback Spencer Sanders to continue to grow at a healthy pace.
