Oklahoma State has bolstered its offensive line unit for 2021 with some immediate help. On Monday, graduate transfer center Danny Godlevske announced he will use his last year of eligibility at OSU.
Everything happens for a reason! After conversations with my family and those close too me, I have decided to grad transfer for my last year of eligibility to Oklahoma State University!! #GoPokes pic.twitter.com/sRY5NX2voe— Danny Godlevske (@Danny_G11) December 21, 2020
Godlevske comes to Stillwater via Miami (Ohio). He had planned to sit out the Redhawks’ 2020 season, announcing (in a now-deleted tweet) back in August that he would instead begin preparing for the 2020 NFL Draft. But when the MAC came back, Godlevske reversed course and started in the Redhawks’ three games.
The six-foot-three, 296 lb. lineman was Miami’s starting center in 37 games during the 2016, 2018, and 2019.seasons. Godlevske suffered an injury in the 2017 season opener and missed the rest of that season.
He was named a member of the all-MAC third-team in 2018 and 2019.
Out of high school, Godlevske was a three-star prospect from Indianapolis and rated as the No. 11 player at his position in the 2016 class.
It’s unknown whether or not senior center Ry Schneider will return to Oklahoma State for the extra season being allotted by the NCAA due to COVID. Whether he does or not, adding a player with 37-games of starting experience never hurts, especially for an offensive line that dealt with the level of attrition that OSU’s did this season.
Godlevske will likely take up one of the two remaining scholarships available for the 2021 class. He joins an offensive line group consisting of three-star JUCO tackle Caleb Ettiene, three-star tackle Logan Nobles, and three-star tackle Silas Barr.
