High Noon Highlights(5/14): Duncan Demuth to transfer to Vermont

Welcome to High Noon Highlights a place to catch up on everything you missed in Oklahoma State Athletics.

It’s high noon…

Duncan Demuth announces he’ll transfer to Vermont:

After announcing that he entered his name in the transfer portal last month, we now know where Demuth will land. He will transfer to Vermont. He made the announcement on Twitter last night.

“After the thoughts and consideration of my my parents, Coach Thorpe and I have decided what the next step in my career will be,” Demuth said. “I will be continuing my academic and basketball career at the University of Vermont.”

Best case and worst case scenarios for Oklahoma State football in 2019:

Heartland College sports wrote a great article on the worst things that could happen and the best things that could happen for Mike Gundy and Co. in 2019.

The Oklahoma State Cowboys open up the season against Oregon State, which would’ve been a decent game during the Mike Riley era. Now, it’s a Beavers team that is 3-21 the past two seasons. Oklahoma State has some questions entering the season, but they roll through the non-conference, which includes McNeese State and Tulsa with a 3-0 record. A road trip to Texas follows, which is the Big 12 opener, and the Longhorns are eager to exact revenge on last season’s stunning upset in Stillwater on Homecoming Weekend, plus OSU’s new quarterback (whoever Gundy goes with) hasn’t seen a defense like Texas’ in his life. The Cowboys drop the game in Austin, but are 3-1 and able to bounce back with a win over a Kansas State team still trying to find its footing under new head coach Chris Klieman. That’s followed by three games in four weeks: at Texas Tech, vs. Baylor and at Iowa State. The latter two are hoping to be party crashers in the Big 12 this fall. If the Cowboys can get through this stretch with a 2-1 record they should be happy. That would make the Pokes 6-2 on the season.{Heartland College Sports}
