Kye Staley Planning Comeback?

We all know that Oklahoma State football is getting a boost with the added participation in spring football of six new team members. Junior college transfers Michael Bowie (OL), Ryan Robinson (DE), and Maurice Hayes (DT) have been added, and head coach Mike Gundy and his staff will also have youngsters Kris Catlin (WLB), Travis Cross (OL), and J.W. Walsh (QB) to work with.

Catlin, a 2010 signee, held out last fall and will get a chance to make an impact at the weakside linebacker, while Cross and Walsh will get their feet wet early coming straight from high school.

An old face may also be back on the field in uniform in Guthrie (Okla.) High School great Kye Staley. Staley, who suffered a very serious knee injury as a redshirt freshman at OSU in 2009, tried to make it back last season but struggled. He has never left the program having served all season as a student assistant coach and continuing to work on his knee and get stronger and better conditioned.

It appears Staley may be back this spring working as a fullback. Whatever Kye Staley does, we at Go Pokes are backing him. He is a tremendous asset to Oklahoma State and the football program.

Other changes include deep snapper Marc Yerry not returning and the uncertain medical situation of Andrew Hudson, who has been plagued by back issues and last season was the victim of that brutal hit by Nebraska's Eric Martin.
