Six Oklahoma State players enter the transfer portal after a regional loss

After losing to the Florida Gators on Monday, June 3, Oklahoma State’s season came to an end again in the first round of the NCAA tournament.

Despite a Big 12 Tournament championship, a 42-win season and another NCAA Regional in Stillwater, six players from the Cowboys 2024 roster have already entered the transfer portal, according to D1Baseball’s transfer portal tracker.

Freshman right-handers Bryce McCain And Tate Smithfreshman infielder Addison Smithjunior outfielder Max Galvinfreshman outfielder Austin Lemon and freshman first baseman Cole Johnson have all reportedly entered the transfer portal.

Each of the six players was a newcomer to Stillwater in 2024 and left after just one season under Josh Holliday and company.

McCain came to OSU from Aledo, Texas, where he was a standout on the mound and in the batter’s box at Aledo High School. At 6-foot-4 and 198 pounds, McCain didn’t record any stats in his lone season with the Cowboys.

Hailing from Greeley, CO, Tate Smith also didn’t log any stats as a true freshman at Stillwater. The 6-foot-1 right-hander from Eaton (CO) finished with an 18-1 career record in high school and helped lead the Reds to three consecutive state titles.

As a junior, Smith struck out 12 on the mound and went 3-for-4 at home in the state championship game.

Addison Smith, an infielder from Liberty, MO, also left the program after just one year in Stillwater. Unlike the two players mentioned above, Smith actually managed to earn time on the field this season, going 0-for-3 in the batter’s box and drawing one walk.

Still, Smith managed to score four points as a true freshman. In the field, the former Cowboys infielder made mistakes against Wichita State and TCU.

Galvin played his high school ball at IMG Academy and spent two years at Miami Dade College before transferring to Oklahoma State. The Coral Gables, FL, product recorded no stats in his lone season at OSU.

Lemon, a local recruit out of Heritage Hall in Oklahoma City, and Johnson, a former Lake Travis (TX) standout, both opted to enter the transfer portal after not keeping stats as true freshmen.
