This is how we feel lately, with grad transfer after grad transfer committing to Oklahoma State across all the sports.
This time, it is Cal State Northridge guard Kendall Smith who announced his commitment to play for Coach Boynton and the Cowboys.

Smith is 6-3, 190 lbs, which is a welcome addition to the position. It’s nice to get some height and length at the position.
This will be the third team in Smith’s career, first playing for the UNLV Rebels for two years before transferring to CSUN. His freshman year for the Rebels he was the Mountain West Freshman of the Year.
Last season, Smith averaged 16.7 points, 4.0 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 1.3 steals per game in the 33.4 minutes per game for the Matadors. He shot 44.8 percent from the floor, 37.5 percent from beyond the 3-point arc and 76.2 percent from the free throw line. His career year earned him a spot on the All-Big West Second Team last season.
As a grad transfer, Smith is immediately eligible to suit up for the Cowboys, unlike Michael Weathers, who will have to sit out a year.
With three true point guards now on the roster, you have to wonder if someone will transfer. Sophopmore Brandon Averette and incoming freshman Zack Dawson are the other two true PGs on the OSU roster. Both have stated their commitment to OSU, but the new addition may change something. Guess we will have to wait and see.
