OSU star WR likely for draft after losing appeal

Friday, November 6, 2009 - 10:09am

All-America receiver Dez Bryant has lost his final appeal to be reinstated by the NCAA this season.

Bryant has sat out the last five games for No. 18 Oklahoma State (6-2, 3-1 Big 12) after the school ruled him ineligible for lying to an NCAA investigator looking into Bryant's offseason meeting with former NFL player Deion Sanders.

The NCAA decided last week that Bryant should be suspended until next September, and OSU appealed to the NCAA's Student-Athlete Reinstatement Committee.
