Huge news for Oklahoma State football tonight.

According to Jake Trotter of ESPN, Clemson graduate transfer cornerback Adrian Baker will play his final season of college football in Stillwater.

He told Trotter his decision was based on expectations for the Cowboys.

"I think they have an opportunity to compete for a national championship, I'm hoping I can come in there and help."

Baker chose Oklahoma State over Central Florida and Houston.

Mike Gundy made the news “official” with his traditional “pistols firing” tweet.

There’s a good chance Baker will get a starting spot next season. That’s huge for OSU’s most concerning position. The Cowboys’ most experienced corner, Ramon Richards, was moved to free safety this offseason. Baker will come in as the only cornerback with starting experience.

The 6-foot-1, 180-pound CB missed the 2016 after tearing his ACL last March. In 2015, he started three games for the Tigers. In his 253 snaps he totaled 15 tackles and two interceptions.

Cowboy fans will get their first chance to see the team this Saturday at the Spring game.
