Oklahoma State Football Loses Two Starters [Updated]

Richard Rowe-USA TODAY Sports

Welp, It's officially the football off-season.

Lyndell Johnson was expected to do big things things in the secondary. Last season he recorded 54 tackles, including 4 for a loss. Gundy said in the press conference that Johnson left for personal reasons.  He his still enrolled at Oklahoma State.

Jake Jenkins has graduated from Oklahoma State and will not return to the football team.  It's another tough loss, and new O-line coach Bob Connelly has his work cut out to replace him.

It was also reported that Oklahoma State will be without backup center Travis Cross. Cross has also graduated and has decided to pursue other endeavors.

"We need that practice." -Coach Gundy

That leaves Paul Lewis, a red-shirt freshman last season, as the likely replacement to Jenkins.

It could be worse. At least Connelly will have the entire spring and fall to prepare Cross before going to Jerry World to face defending National Champion Florida State.

"We need that practice." Gundy said about changing up the spring game.
