Oklahoma State starting quarterback Spencer Sanders has entered the transfer portal after an All-Big 12 career with the Cowboys, the redshirt senior announced Monday at the start of the portal window. Sanders will have one year of eligibility remaining at his next stop thanks to the NCAA-granted pandemic waiver. 

"It is with a very heavy heart that I am announcing my decision to enter the transfer portal today, and in the spirit of the 'Cowboy Culture,' I wanted everyone to hear it directly from me," Sanders wrote in a statement. "I appreciate all that Cowboys fans and the Oklahoma State family have given to my family and me in these memory-filled five years." 

Sanders's career at Oklahoma State followed an award-winning run at Denton (Texas) Ryan High School that ended with him as touted four-star prospect. His time in Stillwater was successful, but also a bit of a mixed bag.
