Oklahoma State freshman Stevie Clark has been suspended from the Cowboys basketball team, and his future with the squad appears up in the air.

Clark did not play in Monday night's 93-67 win at South Florida and was not with the team in Tampa. His status as the team moves on to Kissimmee for the Old Spice Classic remains uncertain, as OSU coach Travis Ford has only confirmed his suspension and offered no further comment.

Amid internet speculation that Clark has either has been kicked off the squad or has quit, The Oklahoman has confirmed that the player remains a part of the squad.

Clark's mother, Dorshell Clark, told The Oklahoman early Monday that her son was still on the team and reiterated that stance on Facebook later:

“He IS NOT LEAVING the team nor has he been kicked off.”

Still, the matter is considered serious. And Clark's activity on Twitter Monday was curious, including these posts over the course of a six-minute period:

“Wounded.”

“Giving it up wasn’t an option, but walking away from it all gone make me better. Gotta find another alternative.”

“Packed and ready to go it’s gone be a long trip.”

Clark, a freshman out of Douglass High, has been a key player off the bench for the Cowboys, averaging 9.8 points with a team-high 20 assists through four games. A two-time state player of the year pick by The Oklahoman, Clark has also relieved on Marcus Smart at the point guard spot.
