Former three-star recruit Tyler Brown has left the Oklahoma State football program. The news of Brown’s departure was first reported by Pistols Firing Blog, and confirmed by the Oklahoman. Brown was a prized in-state recruit in 2016.
Brown is a 6 foot 6, 300 pound mauler from Lexington, OK who was a consensus top 5 prospect in the state of Oklahoma last year. Brown was originally committed to TCU before decommitting and choosing OSU last fall. It’s a blow to the depth of the offensive line, but not necessarily for the 2016 season. Brown would’ve been sure to contribute in the future, but not necessarily soon.
As most now know, 2016 OL signee Tramonda Moore will not be on campus in the fall. Moore signed with OSU in February but apparently had academic issues that caused him to go the junior college route. Moore will be enrolling at Independence Community College, but more importantly, it appears that he will be choosing a long term home this year.
Moore has reclassified to a 2017 prospect, and could still end up in Stillwater. After a year of junior college, Moore is eligible to sign wherever he wants. Also according to Kyle Boone, Tramonda Moore was apparently on campus this last weekend.
Tramonda Moore is on the #okstate campus, per source. Now a 2017 prospect -- signed with OSU in February.— Oklahoma State (@TheOkiePokie) July 17, 2016
This is good news for OSU fans and Greg Adkins. It would appear that Moore still has interest in joining Oklahoma State, albeit a year later than expected.
