OSU Football: Cowboys Lose Junior Safety To Transfer

Posted: Updated:

Junior safety Deric Robertson announced his plans to transfer from Oklahoma State on Twitter Thursday. In a sincere and articulate note Robertson thanked Mike Gundy, Glen Spencer and the rest of the Cowboy staff for the past two years but said it was time to transfer schools.

“At the end of the day my ultimate goal is still to get my degree, reach the NFL and play at a high level. I appreciate everyone I have come across in my time here, from the teammates to the people over in academics and the fans I've come across. As I start this new chapter in my life, I ask for nothing but support. And once again, thank you Stillwater. You guys will always have a place in my heart.”

Robertson looked to be competing for a backup safety spot in 2015. As a freshman in 2013 he played in eight games but didn't see much action on defense last season. He was part of the kick coverage unit in 2014.

The Oklahoma State secondary is loaded with experience and with both starting safeties (Sterns/Flowers) returning, Robertson was in a battle to make the two-deep this Fall. New safeties coach Dan Hammerschmidt will have sophomore Dylan Harding and redshirt freshmen Tre Roberts and Matthew Newsome along with incoming freshmen Kevin Henry, Kenneth McGruder, Za'Carrius Green and Bryce Balous to work with.
