It looks like Hawaii graduate transfer Dru Brown has an official destination.
On Saturday, Brown announced that he intended to transfer to Oklahoma State.
As a graduate transfer, Brown should be eligible immediately next season.
With Oklahoma State set to lose all-time leading passer Mason Rudolph to the NFL Draft, they could really use some Brown to at least create some competition among their other quarterbacks. With four-star quarterback Spencer Sanders coming in next season, Brown could also help the young freshman get acclimated to the college game if Sanders is really going to be Oklahoma State’s quarterback of the future.
The stop-gap could be an essential piece for head coach Mike Gundy, who has turned Oklahoma State into a perennial contender under his tutelage. Since 2010, Oklahoma State has had six 10-win seasons, including a No. 3 overall finish in 2011 after a 12-1 season. Gundy’s success at the school has been largely thanks to high-profile passing offenses, and Brown could prove to be “the guy” in 2018 as Oklahoma State makes another run at a Big 12 title next season.
Brown was the starter for Hawaii over the past two seasons after originally being a two-star JUCO transfer. Brown threw for over 2,000 yards each year at Hawaii, and he had a particularly good statistical performance in the 2017 season, throwing for 2,765 yards and 18 touchdowns against just eight interceptions.
