STILLWATER — Four Oklahoma State football players will not remain with the team, sources close to the program told The Oklahoman Wednesday.
Receivers Damian Davis and Artrell Woods, backup offensive lineman Trent Perkins and backup defensive lineman Jeremy Gray will not be back with the team for various reasons.
Davis, a 6-foot-5, 185-pound sophomore who was the third-leading receiver last season, has been dismissed for violating unspecified team rules. Davis’ transgressions were not related to any legal trouble, sources said.
Woods, a sophomore whose career had been slowed by a weight-lifting accident in 2007 that left him with a cracked vertebrae, is expected to transfer and will not participate in spring practice.
Perkins, a sophomore left tackle, will not return for unknown reasons and Gray, a redshirt freshman defensive tackle, has decided not to pursue a football career.
