Oklahoma State announced on Friday that they will be holding Jeffrey Carroll out of competition pending a review of the program.

Carroll averaged 17.5 points last season and was one of the lone bright spots for the Cowboys entering this year. Mike Boynton’s team will also be without Davon Dillard and Zack Dawson tonight against Pepperdine.

Carroll was not named in the FBI’s complaint, but it was not difficult to connect the dots and assume that he was the player that former assistant coach Lamont Evans was allegedly bribed to steer to financial advisors. Carroll joins Collin Sexton of Alabama and Danjel Purifoy and Austin Wiley of Auburn as players that are officially being held out of competition due to the FBI probe into corruption in college basketball.
