Top receiver Dez Bryant ruled ineligible

Oklahoma State junior wide receiver Dez Bryant has been declared ineligible by the school. The rule violation was for an improper interaction with a former NFL player.

In an issue released by the university, Bryant apologized to coaches, teammates and fans saying he "made a mistake by not being entirely truthful when meeting with the NCAA."

Oklahoma State has already began to reapplication process with the NCAA.

"We are certainly disappointed, but we are moving forward as we would with any challenge during the season," Cowboys head coach Mike Gundy told reporters today.

Bryant is considered the top draft-eligible wide receiver in college football.On the season, he has 17 catches for 323 yards and four touchdowns in three games. Last season, he caught 87 passes for 1,480 yards and 19 touchdowns.

Many, including myself, expect Bryant to be in the 2010 NFL Draft.
