Mike Gundy announces two key offensive players plan to sit out against Missouri in Liberty Bowl
Oklahoma State will be without two key offensive players when the Cowboys suit up against Missouri in the Liberty Bowl.
Coach Mike Gundy said RB Justice Hill, the team’s leading rusher, and offensive guard Larry Williams will not play in the postseason. Gundy said they would “pursue future endeavors.”
Williams is a veteran presence on the offensive line after the JUCO transfer started his collegiate career at East Carolina. Injuries cut short his 2016 and 2017 seasons at Oklahoma State. He started 20 games over three seasons, including all 12 this year.
Hill has 930 yards and nine TDs, but didn’t play the last two games after he left the Oklahoma game with an injury. Hill himself said he would enter the NFL Draft.
Justice Hill and Larry Williams will not participate in the bowl game to pursue future endeavors. We wish both young men the best moving forward. #okstate
