Jalen McCleskey will be transferring from Oklahoma State. The former Cowboy recorded 167 receptions for 1,865 yards and 17 touchdowns during his time in Stillwater.
Mike Gundy broke the news this afternoon that McCleskey would be redshirting this season and transferring for his senior year. McCleskey is able to do so because of the new redshirt rule which allows players to play in up to four games before burning their redshirt for the year. McCleskey didn’t feel as if he were getting enough touches, according to Gundy.
Gundy says McCleskey didn't feel like he was getting the ball enough. McCleskey will play at another school in 2019. #okstate— Nathan Ruiz (@NathanSRuiz) September 24, 2018
Jalen will be remembered as one of the better wide receivers the Pokes have had, and a big part of three straight 10-win seasons in Stillwater. His numbers saw a small dip this season with the emergence of Tylan Wallace. McCleskey will end his career at Oklahoma State near the top of the record books for receiving stats.
Jalen McCleskey was quietly a top-10 receiver in #okstate history. Sixth in receptions, ninth in touchdowns and 10th in 100-yard games.— Nathan Ruiz (@NathanSRuiz) September 24, 2018
We wish Jalen nothing but the best wherever he may end up next season.
