Cowboy back Jelani Woods has entered the transfer portal according to Cody Nagel of 247sports.
Woods was recruited to Oklahoma State as a quarterback, but switched to tight end / fullback hybrid known in the OSU offense as the “Cowboy back” after one season. Woods caught 31 passes for 361 yards and five touchdowns in three years of action.
Many OSU fans have been clamoring for Woods to be a bigger part of the offense for quite a while. At 6-7 and 275 pounds, Woods has the size to be one of the nation’s top red zone and short-yardage threats. Unfortunately, the former three-star recruit wasn’t used much on offense; his most receptions in a season was 16 in 2019 and he set a career-high for receiving yards in a season this year with just 129 yards.
Just to evidence a little of the displeasure some Cowboy fans feel...
Wonder what would happen if we THREW HIM THE DAMN BALL https://t.co/bUY0bPG0yf— Barstool Pokes (@BarstoolOKST) December 21, 2020
Woods is a redshirt junior who will have two years of eligibility left if he wants them, given that this season did not count toward the eligibility of any player.
