Former Oklahoma State wide receiver Kevin Johnson has transferred to Lamar University, according to a text message Lamar coach Ray Woodard sent out to local media in Beaumont, Texas, on Friday.

The Beaumont Enterprise first reported the text message.

Oklahoma State spokesman Gavin Lang confirmed Friday that Johnson had been granted a release from his scholarship at OSU.

Johnson, who will be a redshirt sophomore in 2012, had no career catches at OSU but was listed as a backup at outside receiver on the spring depth chart. He had three catches for 95 yards and a touchdown in the Cowboys' spring finale last month.

Beaumont is about 85 miles east of Houston, where Johnson played high school football at Cypress Ridge. Lamar is a Football Championship Subdivision (formerly Division I-AA) school, meaning he will be able to play immediately.

Johnson is the second Cowboy receiver who was once projected to be on the 2012 roster to leave the program. Michael Harrison decided to stop playing football just before spring practice began.
