Breaking news out of Stillwater: Oklahoma State's starting tight end, Jamal Mosley, has left the team.
Mosley was part of what was expected to be a committee at tight end as the Cowboys hope to replace the production of Brandon Pettigrew.
It's not yet known why Mosley left the team, but according to The Oklahoman, some legal problems could have played a part.
According to documents on the Oklahoma State Courts Network, Mosley was presented with a a restraining order on Thursday that was filed in Payne County court by Kayla Starks. It is unknown whether that situation and Mosley's departure from the team are related.
"Jamal Mosley is leaving our football team for personal reasons," OSU coach Mike Gundy said in a statement. "He has been a good teammate and we wish him the best. We will have no further comment on this matter."
This is the second incident of an Oklahoma State player running into legal trouble in the past 24 hours. It was reported yesterday that starting cornerback Perrish Cox was arrested for driving on a suspended license.
So, let's see... tons of preseason hype, highest ranking in school history, off-field legal problems, talented offense but questionable defense, SI cover jinx... it's almost scary how similar Okie State is to last year's Georgia team.
