Former OSU player’s come to defense of university



Former OSU offensive lineman Russell Okung, who played at OSU from 2006 to 2010 and was a first-round draft pick of the Seattle Seahawks who is still plays for, questioned the credibility of many of the sources within the story, tweeting “Sad that players making wrong decisions such as multiple drug use and detrimental conduct have been deemed credible sources.”

Brad Girtman, who was suspended for the final two games of the 2004 season, was dismissed from the Oklahoma State program for violating team policies in January 2005. Reports during his time on the Stillwater campus surfaced that he was late for team meetings and missed classes.
