STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) Oklahoma State might be on the verge of something special.
Quarterback Mason Rudolph chose to return for his senior season, and the school is pushing him as a Heisman contender. James Washington also could have left for the NFL, but he stayed and should be a leading candidate for the Biletnikoff Award as the nation's top receiver.
Then, there are the transfers. Tyron Johnson, a receiver who left LSU and sat out last season, already has established himself as one of Rudolph's favorite targets this spring. Former Clemson cornerback Adrian Baker is coming to Oklahoma State as a graduate transfer. And Aaron Cochran, a 6-foot-8, 350-pound left tackle who started for California, has announced he intends to join the Cowboys as a graduate transfer. All should be in the mix for starting jobs.
