Tylan Wallace Will Skip NFL Draft, Return to Oklahoma State in 2020

NCAA Football: Texas at Oklahoma State

I don’t think the New Year could get off to a better start than this for Oklahoma State fans.

On Wednesday, Oklahoma State star wide receiver Tylan Wallace announced on Twitter he would be returning to Stillwater for his senior season in 2020, in part saying, “We are building something special in Stillwater and I’m not ready to leave because this is where I belong.”


Wallace had his breakout season in 2018 when he was a Biletnikoff Award finalist and was named a First-Team All-American. He had 86 catches for 1,491 yards and 12 touchdowns during the 2018 campaign.

Expectations were sky high this season and despite working with a freshman quarterback in Spencer Sanders, Wallace caught 53 passes for 903 yards and eight touchdowns in eight games this season. But in an October practice, Wallace torn his ACL and would miss the rest of the season.

Not only does Oklahoma State get a huge boost by this in 2020, it may not be the worst move for Wallace’s draft stock, as it’s expected to be a deep class at wide receiver in the 2020 NFL Draft with CeeDee Lamb, Jerry Jeudy, Tee Higgins, Jalen Reagor, and Henry Ruggs, amongst others, in the draft or expected to declare.
