Australian center Gorjok Gak, who played for Victory Rock Prep (Bradenton, Fla.) has received his release from Oklahoma State days after Brad Underwood was hired as coach, he announced on Twitter. He will reopen his recruitment with the spring signing period set to start in two weeks.
Underwood, who led Stephen F. Austin for three seasons, replaced Travis Ford, who was fired this month after eight seasons with the Cowboys. Victory Rock coach Loren Nelson told The Tulsa World last week Gak was likely to look elsewhere following Ford’s firing.
He had considered UConn, Florida, Missouri and Nebraska, according to Rivals.com, before signing with Oklahoma State in November.
The 6-11 Gak is ranked as the No. 10 player in the state of Florida by ESPN.com. He was a key part of a Victory Rock team that won The Grind Session National Championships event last weekend.
