Oklahoma State DB Thomas Harper Lands With Notre Dame

NCAA Football: Big 12 Football Championship-Baylor vs Oklahoma State

Oklahoma State’s season of departures has been in full swing with players entering the transfer portal. Today, one former cowboy has found a home at Notre Dame.

Oklahoma State defensive back, Thomas Harper announced via Twitter that he would be transferring to Notre Dame to play football. Harper announced his decision to enter alongside multiple other Oklahoma State defenders which left the DB group a little thin.


The announcement comes from Harper via Twitter with a caption that simply reads, ‘#goirish.’

Harper joins a Notre Dame team that finished off the season at 9-4 and his impact should help the Fighting Irish defense with a veteran presence.

The Cowboys have seen several key pieces leave Stillwater this offseason, including 16 scholarship players and several contributors on both sides of the football.

The team’s leading tackler (Mason Cobb) and a key piece of the defensive line (Trace Ford) are both gone now, and Harper makes just the latest starter to find a home elsewhere.

While Harper isn’t the first to leave the Cowboys, his departure makes things a little tougher on Head Coach Mike Gundy and the rest of his defense.
