Cowboys Lose Thompson to Transfer Portal

May 3, 2022

STILLWATER – Oklahoma State is losing a player in the transfer portal that has never played a snap in a real game. Now, normally that would not be big news, but fourth-team quarterback Peyton Thompson has been a major controbutor to the Cowboys success the past two seasons. Thompson has served as the primary scout team (demonstration team) quarterback for the Oklahoma State defense. Thompson has taken that role very serious and done a great job with it. 

Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy has complimented Thompson for his work and had said that Thompson had asked Gundy if he could start his coaching career as a graduate assistant at Oklahoma State after his playing days. That was something Gundy was completely agreeable to.

A University Studies and Sports Management major, Thompson was his district’s Offensive Player of the Year and All-State, All-Conference, and All-District in high school at Tulsa Union. He threw for over 5,700-yards and 66 touchdowns while leading Tulsa Union to a 22-4 record as a starting quarterback. He was also an honor roll student in the National Honor Society with a 4.27 gpa. 

Thompson is 6-1, 210-pounds and there is no doubt that he can play and start for many FCS, Division II, and Division II programs. He is a talented quarterback. His father, Rich Thompson, was a starting punter at Oklahoma State.

Thompson’s departure leaves Oklahoma State with three quarterbacks on the roster in three-year starter Spencer Sanders, red-shirt freshman Gunnar Gundy, and true freshman that went through spring in Garret Rangel. The Cowboys will need to look for a scout team quarterback before the fall.
