Welcome to the Thursday edition of our Oklahoma State DieHards morning roundup, where we take you through the biggest headlines around Oklahoma State athletics.

Oklahoma State readies for pro day

A group of familiar faces will represent Oklahoma State football one more time at the program’s pro day on Thursday. The likes of Mason Rudolph, James Washington and Tre Flowers will be in Stillwater to perform in front of 45 NFL scouts, coaches, general managers and front office personnel. Cowboys guard Larry Williams is tabbed to participate as well. He could return to Stillwater in the fall, however, if he’s granted a medical redshirt.

For the full list of Oklahoma State pro day participants, go here. The next event after the pro day for the Cowboys is its annual spring scrimmage, which is scheduled for April 28 at Boone Pickens Stadium.

The game on Monday will mark Oklahoma State and Stanford’s first meeting since Nov. 23, 2011. The Cardinal won that game 82-67 at Gallagher-Iba Arena. The winner of Oklahoma State-Stanford will face the winner of Southern Cal-Western Kentucky in the NIT quarterfinals,  scheduled for March 20-21.
