Promising Oklahoma State walk-on receiver Obi Obialo announced on Twitter Thursday that he would transfer from the Cowboys.

Obialo was a three star receiver coming into Stillwater, but didn’t get to see a lot of the field last year. He had two catches for 11 yards in his freshman campaign.

Obiolo was a highly-sought after prospect, with offers from the likes of Iowa, Baylor, North Texas and San Diego State. It was the Aztecs he originally signed with, until a season-ending injury his senior year in high school killed his scholarship dreams. He then became a preferred walk-on with Mike Gundy’s team.

He did have a nice catch for a touchdown in the Spring Game.

With the depth at the wide receiver position that Oklahoma State has coming into the 2017-18 season, it isn’t that inconceivable that some of the second and third string receivers would transfer. You hate to lose anyone from the team, but we wish nothing but the best in the future to Obialo.
