OSU Football News And Notes

Oklahoma State will get back to practice Wednesday for the Fiesta Bowl. The Cowboys will have three more practices this week before breaking for Christmas and then traveling to Phoenix.

The team is meeting up on Monday, Dec. 26 for the first of six practices and a day before the game walk through in preparation for the game with Stanford. Wednesday and Thursday practices will be in the early afternoon, while Friday will be earlier to allow the players to get away earlier for home.

Garman Transfer

Former Jones, Okla., quarterback Daxx Garman is transferring from Arizona and there were reports that his destination might be Oklahoma State. That could still be true, but that story has quieted down. In checking with Oklahoma State sources we were told if Garman does wind up in Stillwater it will be without a scholarship and that he would be a walk-on for the spring.

Garman would also have to sit out a season as part of the transfer rule. Garman has played very little football since his junior season in high school at Jones. He was ruled ineligible after his junior season and for his senior season as a result. His parents tried to transfer him to Southlake Carroll in Texas, but he was ruled ineligible there after being the subject of a WFAA News 8 investigative report that revealed his father was still living in the family home in Choctaw and in violation of UIL transfer rules.

Lunt in Phoenix for Semper Fidelis All-America Bowl

One Oklahoma State commitment, a really important one, and a Cowboy recruit will play in Phoenix the night after the Cowboys meet Stanford in the Fiesta Bowl. Oklahoma State quarterback pledge Wes Lunt and Chandler, Ariz., wide receiver Javon Williams, who is scheduled to visit on Jan. 20, are both playing in the Semper Fidelis All-America Bowl. The players will be in Phoenix practicing the week of the Fiesta Bowl and will serve as the flag holders for the giant flag at the Fiesta Bowl.

The next night, Jan. 3, they will put their talents on display with a group of talented players from across the country in the game that will be played at Chase Field in downtown Phoenix. Lunt, the record-setting and two-time state champion at Rochester High School in Illinois, is playing on the East team and Williams on the West squad.
