WR Davis dismissed; three others leave teamFour 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 next season 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, a source said. Woods, whose career had been slowed by a weight-lifting accident that left him with a cracked vertebrae, is expected to transfer and will not participate in spring practice. Perkins is also expected to transfer, and Gray has decided not to pursue a football career.
