STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) -- Michael Bowie, a senior who was a potential starter at left tackle, has decided to transfer from Oklahoma State.
Coach Mike Gundy said Wednesday that Bowie had violated team rules and decided to leave the program. Gundy wasn't sure where Bowie intended to play.
Bowie started five games for the Cowboys last season and figured to be a starter this season after the departure of Levy Adcock, the only offensive tackle to start every game a year ago.
Gundy says redshirt freshman Devin Davis may now be the leading candidate to start at left tackle, but he believes Oklahoma State has enough depth to absorb the loss of Bowie.
