Oklahoma State Cowboys quarterback Spencer Sanders has expressed his intent to enter the transfer portal in the upcoming offseason.

Sanders has been a four-year starter for the Cowboys, but thanks to the extra year of eligibility given to all student athletes who played during the 2020 COVID-impacted season, he’ll have one remaining year left as a graduate transfer.

Sanders’ 2021 season was his strongest as he led the Cowboys to the Big 12 Championship game, falling to Baylor but overcoming a halftime deficit in the Fiesta Bowl to beat Notre Dame. Over four years as a starter, Sanders averaged 2,388 passing yards per season and 489 rushing yards.

The transfer portal is creating quite the carousel for quarterbacks this year. Sanders is just one in a group of high-profile names looking for new destinations. As a four-year starter, he’ll be looking to start somewhere right off the jump. Sanders was 31-13 as a starter at Oklahoma State.
