Former OSU quarterback Bobby Reid may have had second thoughts about entering the NFL draft or he may be looking for a fresh start.
Former OSU quarterback Bobby Reid may have had second thoughts about entering the NFL draft or he may be looking for a fresh start. Reid said he will transfer to Texas Southern for his final season rather than keep himself eligible for the NFL draft.
Reid, who decided to leave the Cowboys after a junior season in which he was benched after two games, made the decision on Friday just hours after the NCAA granted him a waiver to transfer to a Championship Subdivision school.
Reid's decision was first reported by Houston television station KRIV.
"I think this is the best route to take,'' Reid told KRIV.
Reid entered last season as the Cowboys' starter, having held the job since midway through his freshman season. He left a September 8th game against Florida Atlantic with an injury, opening the door for Zac Robinson, who started OSU's last 11 games.
Reid, who went to high school at Galena Park North Shore in suburban Houston, received little playing time after his demotion.
Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy's much-publicized tirade directed at a newspaper columnist last season was about a story critical of Reid.
Texas Southern went 0-11 last season.
