Oklahoma State will enter the 2020 college football season as one of the most experienced teams in the Big 12 at both the running back and receiver positions. They won’t be behind many teams at the quarterback position either.
Star receiver Tylan Wallace set the wheels in motion for the Cowboys to be one of the most dangerous offensive teams in 2020 when he announced on January 1st that he’d be returning. His presence will give OSU a three-year starter, in 2020, with 20 touchdowns during his three seasons and a career average of 17.1 yards per reception.
Passing to Wallace will be redshirt sophomore Spencer Sanders who completed 62.8% of his passes in 2019. As a youngster, Sanders showed the promise of potential during his first season at the help of the Oklahoma State offense. His primary area of improvement this offseason needs to be in the area of ball security (11 interceptions in 2019) but experience also helps with that struggle, and that’s something he’ll have in 2020.
On Monday Oklahoma State announced that long time assistant Kasey Dunn had been promoted to offensive coordinator. Thought initially to be heading to UNLV, to join former Cowboy assistant Marcus Arroyo, Dunn decided to remain in Stillwater where is is the most experienced of the OSU assistant coaches.
The promotion of Dunn prompted the much anticipated announcement of Chuba Hubbard’s return. Sure to be a 2020 preseason Heisman Candidate, Hubbard was the offensive workhorse for the Cowboys in 2019, carrying the ball 328 times for 2,094 yards and 21 touchdowns.
OSU is also looking to return three of five starters along the offensive line which guarantees experience across the board on the offensive side of the ball. That not only makes them one of the most experienced Big 12 teams this fall but also one of the most dangerous.
