‘Tis the season for departures, apparently.
The latest to suffer a negative personnel move is Oklahoma State, with Dominic Ramacher deciding to leave the Cowboys football program. Not only is the linebacker leaving the team, but he’s leaving the sport entirely.
Ramacher revealed his decision on a post made to his Facebook page Friday.
“I have decided to leave OSU and football. My dreams and aspirations have changed and as a young man I need to make decisions for my own life, regardless of what others feel about it. my passion for the game is lost and it would be unfair to the coaches, the team, and myself to continue on with something I cannot fully buy into.”
Ramacher was a three-star member of OSU’s 2012 recruiting class, rated as the No. 42 player at any position in the state of Texas. After redshirting as a true freshman, Ramacher played sparingly on both sides of the ball and mainly saw the field on special teams (12 games).
As The Oklahoman wrote, however, “Ramacher figured to be in the mix for playing time in a desperately thin OSU linebacking corps.”
