I saw Russell Okung at the Cowgirls win over Colorado in Gallagher-Iba Arena on Wednesday night. I know he was at the football meeting on Monday afternoon and has been going to class.

I didn't get the chance to speak to him, but spoke to several teammates and OSU staff and all said they felt he was going to continue to be an Oklahoma State student-athlete.

This is not surprising as Okung has always talked of how important it was for him to get his college degree as it was something he had promised his mother and something she very much wanted him to do.

Okung had been offered the opportunity to have a news conference, but has not taken up the Sports Information office on that option.
