Incoming Oklahoma State quarterback Dru Brown would be in Stillwater, Okla., if he could.
The former Hawaii signal-caller must wait to finish his degree, however, with two months of classes still hanging over his transfer.
The wait isn’t ideal, but Brown is doing everything he can to be ready when he arrives at Oklahoma State in late July, according to The Oklahoman’s Scott Wright.
“I’ve basically been doing everything I can within the rules to make sure I’m as prepared as I can be when I get there,” Brown told The Oklahoman. “I can’t get there fast enough. The hardest part about this whole thing is being patient with it.”
Brown left Hawaii as a graduate transfer to pursue a different FBS opportunity. He landed with the Cowboys, and he expects to compete for the starting job with one year of eligibility remaining.
Senior quarterback Taylor Cornelius has a major advantage to replace Mason Rudolph as a veteran in Oklahoma State’s program. Incoming freshman Spencer Sanders also expects to compete for the starting job as one of the top high school quarterback prospects in the 2018 recruiting class.
Nothing will be easy on Brown, who will have a shorter time frame to prove himself as Oklahoma State’s starter.
Brown has the most FBS experience, however, of the starting quarterback candidates.
He accumulated 5,273 yards passing, 37 touchdowns and 15 interceptions in two seasons as Hawaii’s quarterback.
That’s more than Cornelius and Sanders can say.
That experience and Oklahoma State’s interest in making room for a graduate transfer quarterback has to make Brown somewhat confident he can step into the starting role in Stillwater.
