Other scholarship players in Oklahoma State football who have entered the gate since the beginning of December include Defensive Intervention Jayden Jerniganrunning back Desmond Jackson, safety Tanner McAllisterwide future Matt Polk.

Jernigan and McCalister have since announced their relocation destinations and will not return to Oklahoma.

The NCAA introduced the transfer portal on October 15, 2018, providing athletes with a path to explore their options. Players do not need to ask permission from their coaching staff in order to move. They only need to request compliance by entering their name. Usually, it takes 24 to 48 hours for a player to appear at their request. Schools are free to contact the player without restrictions once their name appears in the portal.

While a player entering his name into the transfer portal means that he intends to explore his options, this does not necessarily mean that he will leave. The player is free to withdraw his name at any time. However, schools are not obligated to keep the player in the scholarship once they enter the portal.

There were 2,646 FBS players entered the transfer portal during the 2020-2021 transfer cycle, per source. This is up from 1,692 in 2019-20 and 1,717 in 2018-19.

This increase can be attributed at least in part to a new NCAA policy that allows student-athletes to transition once in their careers without having to sit for a year in residence. This means that all players who enter the transfer portal for the first time will be immediately eligible at their new school as long as they meet the NCAA deadline for entry.
