Oklahoma State receiver Patrick McKaufman announced in a Twitter post Friday that he will be transferring.

“I’d like to thank coach (Mike) Gundy and coach (Kasey) Dunn for giving me the opportunity to play at such a high level of competition,” McKaufman said in his tweet. “I’ve made many relationships and connections during my time here and will forever be grateful for them.”

McKaufman is a 6-foot-6, 200-pound athlete who appeared in five games as a redshirt junior this year but didn’t record any stats. The former Oklahoma City Douglass standout was injured in the 2018 preseason, which kept him out that entire season.

McKaufman is leaving Stillwater, but the Cowboys’ top wide receiver, Tylan Wallace, has announced he will return next year. OSU also will have Dillon Stoner and Braydon Johnson, both of whom stepped up in Wallace’s absence.
