STILLWATER, Okla. After his first spring practice today, Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy said he wanted his team to do a better job of catching the ball and making big plays.
One problem: His two playmaking pass catchers weren't there.
D'Juan Woods was gone after completing his senior season and Adarius Bowman was off with the basketball team. That left the Cowboys without a single wide receiver who caught more than four passes last season.
One of only two Cowboys selected to the A-P All-Big 12 team last season, Bowman led Oklahoma State with 60 catches for one-thousand-181 yards and 12 touchdowns last season.
His 300 yards receiving against Kansas were a Big 12 record. Woods was second on the team with 41 receptions for 647 yards last season.
The rest of Oklahoma State's team combined for 73 catches for 795 yards.
