A former Columbia prep football standout is looking for a new collegiate home.

Tolton Class of 2020 graduate and Oklahoma State offensive lineman Monroe Mills has entered the transfer portal and will depart Stillwater after two seasons with the Cowboys.

"After careful consideration, I have decided to explore my options in the transfer portal for my remaining four years of eligibility," Mills wrote in a statement on social media. "I appreciate the support the Cowboys fans have given me."

Mills began gaining traction as a Division I prospect in 2018 as he helped lead Tolton to a 4-7 record.

"I would like to thank the Oklahoma State family for the time I've had with them," Mills wrote. "I have made the best relationships and will be forever grateful."

Mills was a three-star prospect who committed to Oklahoma State in August 2019. He picked the Cowboys over his final preferred choices of Missouri, Indiana and Kansas.
