Oklahoma State wide receiver Tylan Wallace, a 2018 All-American whose 2019 season was cut short by an ACL tear, announced Wednesday he will return to school.

“We are building something special in Stillwater and I’m not ready to leave because this is where I belong,” he wrote in a social media post. “God has a plan for my life and I believe he places every roadblock for me to overcome.

“I want to give back to my family, my teammates, and the entire OSU community because I am beyond thankful. I’m after a Big 12 championship in 2020 and believe we have the team to do it.”

Wallace, who will be a senior next season, made 53 receptions for 903 yards and eight touchdowns in eight games this year before suffering the ACL injury in practice.

He was one of three finalists for the 2018 Biletnikoff Award, given to the nation’s top receiver. He caught 86 passes for 1,491 yards and 12 scores that season.

Oklahoma State went 8-5 this year, losing 24-21 to Texas A&M in the Texas Bowl.
