Redshirt sophomore H-back Dane Saltarelli revealed his commitment to Western Kentucky via Twitter Wednesday after announcing his transfer from OU on Monday.
Truly Blessed to announce that I will be continuing my education and football career at Western Kentucky University. Thankful to God, my family, friends and teammates who supported me. Thank you @Coach_Helton, @BryanEllisWKU, and @CoachZLankford for this amazing opportunity.#WIT pic.twitter.com/ovsh9lPk6h— Dane Saltarelli (@dane_saltarelli) January 6, 2021
Saltarelli played in just two games for OU in the last two seasons after coming to Norman from Florida's IMG Academy as a walk-on. He never registered any stats for the Sooners and was mired in a deep room of contributors in sophomore Austin Stogner, junior Brayden Willis, redshirt junior Jeremiah Hall and freshman Mikey Henderson.
Now, despite a plethora of departures via the NCAA portal, Saltarelli is just the third former Oklahoma player to find a new home this offseason, after quarterbacks Tanner Mordecai and Chandler Morris committed to SMU and TCU, respectively.
