The injury hits keep coming for Oklahoma State.
Coach Mike Gundy revealed the latest blow Monday, announcing that freshman wide receiver C.J. Curry is out for the season with a shoulder injury.
Curry, one of the gems of the 2012 recruiting class, played in two games for the Cowboys this season and recorded two catches for 25 yards. He was rated a four-star recruit coming out of Flowery Branch (Ga.) High School.
Curry will likely receive a medical redshirt.
The OSU receiving corps is already missing starters Tracy Moore (ankle) and Isaiah Anderson (finger), as well as backup John Goodlett (undisclosed injury). On this week's depth chart, Blake Webb and Nick Rockwell moved from inside receiver to the outside, while Jhajuan Seales, a true freshman who hasn't played yet this season, is listed as a possible backup.
TCU NOT A NEW OPPONENT ON RECRUITING TRAIL
Though TCU is a new Big 12 opponent for OSU, the Cowboy coaching staff has been going head-to-head with the Horned Frogs for years — on the recruiting trail.
Because of TCU's location in the Dallas Metroplex, a high school football hotbed, Gundy and TCU coach Gary Patterson often find themselves scouting the same teams.
“Coach Patterson's cordial to me, and I'm cordial to him,” Gundy said. “We're trying to watch guys, and I'm not telling him who I'm looking at, and he's not telling me who he's looking at. Because sometimes we look at players other schools don't.”
Players on OSU's current roster who also had interest from TCU, according to the OSU media guide, include receiver Torrance Carr, linebackers Alex Elkins, Lyndell Johnson and Caleb Lavey, cornerbacks Justin Gilbert and Devin Hedgepeth, center Jake Jenkins and running back Desmond Roland.
Perhaps the most notable recruiting battle between OSU and TCU was for running back Kendall Hunter, who chose the Cowboys in 2007 and went on to become the school's fourth-all-time leading rusher.
TCU RECEIVER SKYE DAWSON A VERSATILE THREAT
TCU wide receiver Skye Dawson will likely be all over the field Saturday against OSU, as reflected by the weekly Paul Hornung Award for the nation's most versatile player he picked up Monday.
Dawson tallied 248 all-purpose yards in the Horned Frogs' thrilling triple-overtime loss to Texas Tech last week, including 154 yards on a career-high 10 catches, 60 yards on four punt returns and 34 yards on two kickoff returns.
Dawson currently ranks 39th in the nation in all-purpose yards, averaging 129.33 per game.
