Patrick Casey Transfers to Oklahoma
MSU Junior Patrick Casey has announced that he will be transfering to the University of Oklahoma. Patrick has continually impressed over his last two years with PR's of 1:47, 3:41, 3:54 (mile-altitude converted) and 8:09 for 3k. Patrick has especially shined in the indoor mile where he has been able to run sub 4 at Bozman's altitude of 4793 feet. Casey earned all-american honors finishing 3rd in mile indoors in 2010 as a redshirt freshman and 8th in the 1500 at the 2011 NCAA Outdoor Championships.
Casey, who is currently a redshirt Junior, will join an everly increasingly deep Sooner Mid Distance squad, which also includes University of Maine transfer Riley Masters. Masters confirmed his transfer to Oklahoma a little less than a month ago on December 15th. All of a sudden Oklahoma looks pretty strong in that DMR for indoors!
