Oklahoma State RB J.D. King to Transfer

NCAA Football: Oklahoma State at Central Michigan

Mike Gundy is having another player transfer. Oklahoma State running back J.D. King announced on Twitter he would be transferring. King is a sophomore who will have two years of eligibility remaining.

Here is what King had to say on Twitter.

King has had a very quiet season for the Cowboys playing behind Justice Hill, arguably the best running back in the Big 12, along with freshman Chuba Hubbard, who has come on strong in recent weeks.

King was a three-star prospect from Georgia and has played sparingly this season. He’s received 43 carries, which is fourth on the team, but has only rushed for 153 yards, which ranks 5th on the team. His numbers have decreased significantly from his freshman season, when he piled up 469 rushing yards on 99 carries, good for 4.7 ypc, with four touchdowns. King has yet to find the end zone this season.

The Cowboys are in good shape in the backfield with Hill, Hubbard and LD Brown, who has missed some time this season, but he’s averaged over 10 ypc when playing. But it remains to be seen as to whether or not Hill will return for his senior season in Stillwater or go off to the NFL.

Oklahoma State closes out its season Saturday against TCU. The Cowboys became bowl eligible with their win over West Virginia last weekend.
