Report: Shane Illingworth Has Entered the Transfer Portal

January 24, 2022

STILLWATER – Another Oklahoma State player has entered the transfer portal, this time back on the offensive side of the ball. According to a report from Max Olson of The Athletic, quarterback Shane Illingworth has entered his name into the portal.

Illingworth, who has been the primary backup, would be entering his third season in Stillwater this fall. He becomes the 12th OSU player to enter the portal in this cycle.

This past season, the 6-6 quarterback out of Norco, played in three games, starting in the season opener against Missouri State as Spencer Sanders was dealing with COVID issues. Illingworth went 22-of-40 for 315 yards and one touchdown. He also saw action against Kansas and Notre Dame, going 6-of-10 against the Jayhawks for 70 yards and two touchdowns.

Illingworth played an expanded role during the 2020 season as he was thrown into the fire in the season opener against Tulsa following an injury to Sanders. Illingworth went 4-for-5 against Tulsa for 79 yards. On the season, he played in four games, going 41-of-70 for 554 yards and four touchdowns.

This news shouldn’t come as too big of a surprise as it was kind of expected to happen with Sanders returning for his senior season in the fall. Along with Sanders, freshman Garret Rangel is already on campus, along with Gunnar Gundy and Peyton Thompson.
