Oklahoma State Safety Kolby Harvell-Peel Announces Return for 2021 Season

NCAA Football: Texas Christian at Oklahoma State

After declaring for the 2021 NFL Draft just last week, Oklahoma State safety Kolby Harvell-Peel announced on Monday that he will return to Stillwater for another season.

“Upon further consideration, I feel as though it is best that I withdraw my name from this year’s NFL Draft pool,” Harvell-Peel said in his Twitter post. “That said, I’d like to announce I will be returning in 2021 for my senior year at Oklahoma State University.”

Harvell-Peel finished the 2020 season with 44 total tackles, two tackles for loss, one sack, two interceptions and four passes defensed. The 6-foot, 210-pound defensive back was named All-Big 12 Second Team by the league’s coaches. Harvell-Peel missed one game due to injury.


Harvell-Peel is a three-year starter in the Oklahoma State secondary, seeing significant playing time as a true freshman in 2018. He had a breakout sophomore season in 2019, recording 71 total tackles, three tackles for loss, one sack, five interceptions and 13 pass breakups, which tied for ninth most in a single season in program history. He was named first-team All-Big 12 by both the Associated Press and league coaches.

He was a key part in the Oklahoma State defensive turnaround this past season under defensive coordinator Jim Knowles. The Cowboys will not only return Kolby Harvell-Peel in the secondary but Tre Sterling as well for the 2021 season.
