High Noon Highlights(1/21): Thabo Mwaniki to transfer to Houston

Welcome to High Noon Highlights, a place to catch up on everything you missed in Oklahoma State Athletics.

NCAA Football: Oklahoma at Oklahoma State Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

It’s high noon...

Thabo Mwaniki is headed to the University of Houston:

Former Oklahoma State safety Thabo Mwaniki is headed to join Dana Holgerson on the University of Houston Cougars. Mwaniki annouced two months ago that he would be leaving OSU.

At Houston, Mwaniki becomes one of the early players to join new head coach Dana Holgorsen, who left West Virginia to take the Cougars gig this offseason. Holgorsen previously served as an offensive coordinator at Oklahoma State before taking the Mountaineers gig.

Mwaniki committed to OSU out of Denton Guyer High School over more than a dozen scholarship offers from the likes Baylor, Colorado, TCU, UCLA and others in 2017. Per NCAA rules, he will be required to sit the upcoming football season and be eligible for two seasons beginning in 2020. {Pistols Firing}

Oklahoma State wins Throwback Uniforms of the Year from UniSwag:

There’s no doubt that the Barry Sanders anniversary uniforms the Cowboys rolled out for Homecoming last season were some of the best they wore this year — or ever for that matter. Well.. They’ve been recognized by UniSwag as the throwback uniforms if they year. This is pretty awesome and well deserved! Let’s hope they become a regular part of the rotation.

Rickie Fowler talks about his switch to TaylorMade:

Fowler has made a big switch in his golf game this season. He is now using TaylorMade balls instead of Titleist. The golfer took time to talk Golfworld about why he made the switch.

I got a little bit of time with the golf ball during the season and did some initial testing to see if it was a road worth going down. Then I played with DJ [Dustin Johnson] at the Ryder Cup and I would play his ball some in Foursomes, so I got to see it in tournament conditions and I was impressed. It was mostly driving the ball where he was hitting the approach shot, so I really waited until after the season to get time in with the golf ball. It’s been impressive.{Golfworld}

Thomas Dziagwa and Mike Boynton bond over love of reading:

This is a fantastic interview with Dizzy and Allison Gappa where he talks about something that him and coach Boynton have in common; a love of reading. When Thomas saw Craig Sager’s book on coach’s self he asked if he could borrow it. He talked with Gappa about how the book impacted him in this interview.
