Oklahoma State wide receiver Tylan Wallace will return for his senior season rather than enter the 2020 NFL Draft.

Wallace made the announcement Wednesday via Twitter saying, “We are building something special in Stillwater and I’m not ready to leave because this is where I belong.”

Wallace missed the final four games of the season after he sustained a torn ACL during practice Oct. 30. He had surgery to repair his ACL on Nov. 6. He caught 53 passes for 903 yards, including four 100-yard games, and eight touchdowns in eight games. The Cowboys went 3-2 the rest of the season without Wallace to finish 8-5.

Wallace, who was a 2018 Biletnikoff Award finalist as the best wide receiver in the country, ranks sixth in program history with 2,512 receiving yards and is tied for sixth with 20 receiving touchdowns.

The 6-foot, 185-pound wide receiver was considered a top-20 prospect at his position for the NFL Draft, according to ESPN.
