Oklahoma State fullback Braden Cassity officially declared for the 2024 NFL Draft on Monday evening, ending his four-year career as a fan favorite in the Big 12.
The senior utility player spent four seasons in Stillwater, racking up 14 catches for 140 yards while totaling two tackles on defense.
In his announcement post, Cassity thanked his family, coaches, teammates, and Oklahoma State fans for their support and impact on his life.
“I would first like to thank my family for being my largest supports throughout my athletic career, I cannot express my appreciation enough that I have y’all during this journey,” Cassity said in the statement.
“Secondly, I would like to thank my teammates and friends that I made during my time in Stillwater. Thank y’all for welcoming a Texas kid with open arms. To my coaches and the OSU staff, thank you for not only developing me into a better player but a better man. Y’all taught me life lessons that I will carry with me forever.”
“Lastly, I’d like to say how grateful I am for the Cowboy fans and the entire Stillwater community. Your kindness has never been overlooked and you make Stillwater a very special place. From a Fiesta Bowl victory to Bedlam wins, I am sad to say my career as a Cowboy is over. With that being said, I am preparing to continue my athletic career by declaring for the NFL Draft. Go Pokes!”
In total, Cassity leaves Stillwater as a four-time First-Team Academic All-Big 12 player, an All-Big 12 honorable mention, and a team captain in 2022.
