Wide receiver Michael Harrison had been a candidate to earn a starting job on the Oklahoma State offense in 2012 but was suspended for the season in February. Now it seems that Harrison has decided since he can't play football in 2012, he doesn't want to play football in 2013 or any other year.
Harrison told head coach Mike Gundy he was leaving the Oklahoma State program last week.
“The NCAA suspended him,” Gundy told The Oklahoman. “I never suspended him, and then he chose to not play football. He made that choice himself. My recommendation to him was to finish school, because that's what you have to do. You can't go anywhere at this particular time…and then if he chooses to (leave), that's his call.
“I don't know what he wants to do. I just know that he's decided he does not want to play football anymore.”
Harrison caught 20 passes for 255 yards and 3 touchdowns for the Cowboys last season.
