Former Oklahoma State wide receiver transfers to Vanderbilt

After losing freshman wide receiver C.J. Bolar to the transfer portal last week, Vanderbilt head coach Derek Mason has added a player who could have an immediate impact.

Graduate transfer Tyrell Alexander announced on Sunday that he would be leaving Oklahoma State after spending the last three years with the Cowboys.

The 6 foot 1 wideout was relegated to playing special teams in his time in Stillwater and managed just two catches for 68 yards despite appearing in 26 games.

Alexander was a three-star recruit in the class of 2016 but never managed to break into the deep receiving corps formed by head coach Mike Gundy.

With so much uncertainty heading into the fall and after another average recruiting class, Vandy needs all the help they can get. It's still unknown who the starting quarterback will be when the season gets started in September, but it will be very nice to have a tall, athletic weapon on the outside in Tyrell Alexander.
