Oklahoma State knew they were losing two starting offensive linemen in Victor Salako and Michael Wilson to graduation this year. Now it looks like they’ll lose a back-up as well.
Redshirt junior offensive lineman Brandon Pertile announced on Twitter that he will graduate this year and seek a tranfer from OSU.

Pertile tweeted out, “After talking with Coach Gundy, I have decided to grad-transfer from Oklahoma State to play my fifth year elsewhere while pursuing a law degree. I thank everyone who has supported me and I will always be a Cowboy!”
Pertile has served as a back-up lineman since transferring from Mesa Community College two years ago. He spent most of his time behind right tackle Zach Crabtree. The move from Oklahoma State should provide Pertile with more playing time in his fifth and final season of eligibility.
