The rich get richer as Oklahoma State has shored up two of its greatest weaknesses in the last two days, with yesterday’s addition of Clemson graduate transfer CB Adrian Baker, and now Cal grad transfer OL Aaron Cochran.
Glad to say that I'll be continuing my collegiate football career at Oklahoma State University! #GoPokes— Aaron Cochran (@Cochran_Aaron) April 12, 2017
Cochran is a monster, measuring up at 6-8, 351 lbs. He started 16 games for the Golden Bears, and as a graduate transfer, is eligible to play immediately. He will presumably take over the starting left tackle spot, which was originally thought to belong to redshirt freshman Dylan Galloway.
Cochran on picking Oklahoma State: “I loved the environment, loved the school. I like what’s going on there. I want to be a part of it."— Jake Trotter (@Jake_Trotter) April 12, 2017
Cochran chose Oklahoma State over offers from Auburn and Texas Tech, according to Trotter.
He will be expected to contribute immediately, and with his size and experience, he should be a much-needed anchor for the Cowboy offensive line.
