Report: Harrison Leaving OSU

According to a report from KOTV News on 6 in Tulsa, Oklahoma State wide receiver Michael Harrison is leaving the program. This is not a surprise as Harrison was suspended by the NCAA as the result of an action at the Fiesta Bowl and the NCAA penalty is a season long suspension.

That would mean that Harrison would have to sit a full year and retain his eligibility in order to play one final season in 2013.

One option Harrison has to continue playing football this fall is to either enroll at an NAIA school where he would be eligible or to apply for the NFL supplemental draft, which would take place in the summer. Either way, from reports Tuesday, Harrison won't be staying in Stillwater at Oklahoma State.

Harrison caught 20 passes for 255 yards and three touchdowns during the 2011 season.

The Cowboys begin the process of finding receivers that will step up and help in the face of losing the likes of Justin Blackmon, Josh Cooper and Harrison when they begin spring football practice on Monday.
