Veteran College Quarterback Entering Transfer Portal

Oklahoma State QB Spencer Sanders

Dallas native Spencer Sanders has had a prolonged journey through his college football career, and it isn't done yet.

The 22-year-old redshirted in 2018, started over the following four seasons for the Oklahoma State Cowboys, and is now taking advantage of his remaining eligibility by transferring elsewhere.

In an announcement posted to social media on Monday, Sanders confirmed his time at Oklahoma State had come to a close. 

"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.

"I appreciate all that Cowboy fans and the Oklahoma State family have given to my family and me in these memory-filled five years. The relationships, education and endless support are something that will stay with me forever. I hope that everyone will respect this massive decision and support me In my next chapter of life. Again, thank you" he concluded. 

Rated a four-star recruit out of high school, Sanders' collegiate offers ranged from vaunted programs such as Penn State, Colorado, Ole Miss, and several others

Sanders landed with Oklahoma State, though, and proved his mettle as a four-year starter including two MVP performances in bowl games. Now, one would assume he's giving himself the best chance at moving to the next level by having one last standout season. 

Understandably, some teams will be deterred by Sanders' age. However, on the flipside, Sanders' experience could lend an otherwise fledgling program instant credibility. 

If early tweets from the college football community are any indication, Sanders will garner interest in the transfer portal.
