Oklahoma State loses another major piece


According to the Oklahoma State beat writers at the Tulsa World Herald, safety Lyndell Johnson is no longer at Oklahoma State. This is a major loss for a team that already lost 14 starters and 8 second-stringers to graduation and/or the NFL draft. "Johnson, a native of Plano, Texas, was a key member of the Cowboys' defense last season after moving from linebacker to safety to see more playing time. He started three games because of injuries and was expected to move into the starting lineup with the departures of seniors Daytawion Lowe and Shamiel Gary and reserve Zack Craig. Now, sophomores Deric Robertson and Jordan Sterns are likely candidates to become starters. Senior Larry Stephens also returns after a season-ending injury in Week 1 of last season." FSU opens with Oklahoma State in Dallas on Labor Day weekend. Update: Oklahoma State's returning starter at Center is also gone.
