Here's a "whatever happened to them" item that isn't good for a former Big 12 player.

KRIV-TV in Houston reports that former Oklahoma State quarterback Bobby Reid underwent season-ending knee surgery Monday for an injury suffered earlier in the season at his new school, Texas Southern.

Reid transferred from Oklahoma State after last season when he was beaten out for the Cowboys' starting job by Zac Robinson.

The surgery was performed by Houston Texans team physician Walter Lowe, who told the television station that he repaired Reid's anterior cruciate ligament and lateral meniscus on the right knee.

"The surgery went great," Lowe told KRIV. "The prognosis is real good. I expect him to make a full recovery. Bobby will be ready by training camp."

Reid showed flashes after his transfer that made him one of the most heralded recruits to ever pick Oklahoma State. He passed for 1,790 yards and 12 touchdowns and rushing for 223 yards and nine touchdowns for the Tigers this season.

Reid's goal remains to receive a shot at the NFL and he is hopeful he will get drafted in April.

"That's the only thing that's disappointing," Reid told KRIV. "It kind of happened at a bad time. I've got a bump in the road that I need to climb over. All I need is for one person to like me and that's all you need."
