Collin Clay doesn’t know if he’ll be eligible to play football this fall for Oklahoma State.

Clay, who transferred from Arkansas to OSU in late December, is waiting to hear about his eligibility for the upcoming 2020 season.

Cowboys coach Mike Gundy said during a weekly Zoom press conference that it’s a “wait and see game” about the true sophomore’s status. If Clay is granted a waiver he’ll provide more depth and size (6-foot-3, 295 pounds) to OSU’s defensive line for coordinator Jim Knowles.

“He seems to be doing well,” Gundy said about Clay’s performance during practices, according to 247Sports. “He’s on a defensive line where we have quite a bit of depth so he rotates in and he stays fresh, which is an advantage for all those big guys. I like his attitude, I like his work ethic at this time. Hopefully his waiver will get approved at some point and he can be a part of our team on game day.”

Clay, a former four-star recruit from Putnam City in Oklahoma City, had 15 total tackles in 11 games for Arkansas in 2019.
