Oklahoma State’s defensive line is replacing six players who were on its two-deep depth chart next season. Friday night, the Cowboys found out a former Oklahoma high school star will transfer to help add depth.

Israel Antwine, a former Millwood High School standout and Colorado defensive end, will transfer to OSU, per The Oklahoman‘s Scott Wright.¬†Antwine is on campus and will begin classes Monday, per Wright’s report.

Antwine was committed to OSU until the final day before the early signing period last season, when he flipped to the Buffaloes. As a true freshman, he started all but one game at defensive end. At 6-foot-4, 290 pounds, he could play across the defensive line.

Because of the major overhaul of the coaching and support staff at Colorado, OSU has informed Antwine he may be granted a hardship waiver from the NCAA to be eligible immediately, rather than having to sit out a season, per Wright’s report.

If he has to sit out a year, he would still have three years of eligibility remaining starting in 2020.

Antwine racked up 16 tackles and one sack in his freshman season.
