Rangel joins Gunnar Gundy and Peyton Thompson in OSU quarterback depth as the Cowboys seek Sanders’ backup in 2022.
McKinney, a 6-foot-1 defensive back from Colleyville, Texas, saw the OSU secondary decimated in its first few weeks on campus with five Opening Day starters choosing to either transfer or heading to the NFL Draft.
Tyler Junior College linebacker Xavier Benson and New Mexico Military Institute offensive tackle Tyrone Webber represent the Cowboys’ junior college transfer pair.
Benson, who played 12 games at Texas Tech in 2019, should bring maturity to a linebacking lineup that includes both Malcolm Rodriguez and Devin Harper. Speaking of Webber, the fourth junior college recruit ranked by 247Sports, Gundy emphasized fundamentals and athleticism.
“We feel like once he’s here and he’s been with (strength coach Rob) Glass for six months, he’s going to completely change his body and his strength levels, just like us. ‘we did with (Jaylen Warren) when he came along,’ Gundy said in December.
With this group already on campus and Gordon set to follow, the remaining members of OSU’s Class of 2022 – Braylin Presley, DeSean Brown, Cameron Epps, Mason Gilkey, Landon Dean, Austin Kawecki, Jaleel Johnson, Gabe Brown and Calvin Harvey – are ready to arrive in the summer.
