On Saturday, Oklahoma State returns home to face Baylor — the school that Cowboys defensive tackle DeQuinton Osborne initially signed with in 2016.
Osborne has been a terror for the Pokes this season as a redshirt senior, racking up a team-leading 6 tackles for loss and 3 sacks. He’s also recorded 15 tackles and recovered a fumble for the 4-1 Cowboys.
The transfer from Kilgore Junior College originally had his eyes set on Waco, Texas, however, before Baylor’s sexual assault scandal made him rethink his decision and request a release.
During an Oklahoma State practice, The Oklahoman’s John Helsley reports fellow defensive lineman Darrion Daniels asked Osborne why he wasn’t with the Bears.
“We were getting ready for practice and I was like, ‘DQ, weren’t you supposed to go to Baylor?’” Daniels told The Oklahoman. “He said, ‘I signed there, but with all that stuff going on, I didn’t want to be associated with it.’
“That’s cool. I feel like he’s happy here.”
Osborne wouldn’t go into major detail about the decision, but reiterated to The Oklahoman, he’s happy to have found a home in Stillwater, Oklahoma.
He’s been a bright spot for the Cowboys defense and has emerged as one of the best at his position in the conference.
All of his efforts would surely be welcome by a winless Baylor team right now, but fortunately for coach Mike Gundy’s defense, Osborne is a Cowboy.
