Oklahoma State Defensive Tackle Brendon Evers Announces Return for 2022

January 14, 2022

STILLWATER – Oklahoma State got a solid piece on the defensive line back for next season as defensive lineman Brendon Evers took to Twitter to announce he's returning for the 2022 season.

"Cowboy nation, these last few years have been some of the best of my life and I want to thank every single person who has had a hand in this journey," Evers’ graphic posted to Twitter read. "But I'm not ready for this journey to end just yet... After much consideration, I feel that there is still some unfinished business left in Stillwater for me. That being said... I will be back for the 2022 season! Go Pokes!"

Evers was a a redshirt senior this past season as a member of the 2017 signing class, but due to COVID rules, he still has one year of eligibility remaining.

While he didn’t post the best numbers on the team, Evers was an integral part of the 2021 defensive unit. He played in all 14 games this past season and recorded 21 total tackles, seven of which were solo stops, 6.0 tackles for loss, 3.0 sacks, one quarterback hurry and one pass break up.

This announcement of Evers returning is huge for the Pokes as he’ll join fellow class of 2017 defensive lineman, Brock Martin, next season. The Cowboys lost interior lineman Jayden Jernigan to Missouri through the transfer portal and senior tackle Israel Antwine declared for the NFL Draft earlier this week.

Evers is a tough guy that has played through a myriad of injuries and has had shoulder surgery. He is a player that commands a lot of respect from his teammates and is definitely a leader within the team.
