The Oklahoma State receiving corps is different in its threat than Texas football in multiple aspects. But the main one is the fact that a lot of the Pokes wide receivers aren’t as experienced, highly touted, or proven as that of Texas. There’s a lot more depth in the receiving corps for the Longhorns whereas the Pokes are top heavy at the position.

However, one experienced and proven threat for the Pokes at wide receiver is redshirt senior (who feels like a ninth year senior) Dillon Stoner. Thus far this season, Stoner has 13 touches for 100 total yards from scrimmage and no touchdowns. He’s come close a few times to nabbing his first touchdown of the season.

Stoner can be a threat to the Longhorns both on offense and on special teams. He’s become more reliable in the punt return game this season, but Oklahoma State hasn’t even come close to returning one kick or punt for a touchdown despite all of their explosive skill position weapons.

Gundy and Gleeson like to use Stoner through any number of looks off the line of scrimmage. He’s also gashed Herman and the Longhorns in the past. Two of the time Stoner faced Texas, former head coach Charlie Strong was still at the helm. That’s how long Stoner has been around in Stillwater for.
