Incoming freshman OL Greg Brantley leaves Oklahoma State for ‘personal reasons’

Oklahoma State updated its roster Thursday in preparation for the first day of fall camp, and the most noticeable omission was incoming freshman offensive lineman Greg Brantley.

An OSU spokesperson said Thursday evening that Brantley left the team for “personal reasons.”

It’s another hit to the depth of the Cowboy offensive line, though not as big as Wednesday’s news that projected starting left tackle Michael Bowie was no longer with the program after violating team rules.

Brantley, a 6-6, 310-pound lineman from Carthage, Texas, was rated a three-star prospect by Rivals.

Other offensive linemen in OSU’s 2012 signing class include freshmen Michael Wilson, Zac Veatch and Paul Lewis and junior college transfer Chris Grisbhy. They are all expected to begin practicing with the Cowboys Friday morning.
