The Cowboys oversigned by two in their latest recruiting class. Post player Torin Walker, who spent his freshman season at OSU, transferred to Middle Tennessee State. And Sidorakis, a scholarship player during his first three seasons, solved the numbers problem by surrendering his scholarship.
"Nick kind of brought it up," said Ford when asked how the arrangement was reached. "It's the ultimate sacrifice and commitment to a program, what he is doing."
Ford said Sidorakis expressed a willingness to do whatever he could to help the program. Ford described it as an "incredible gesture" by Sidorakis and his family. Sidorakis father is the general manager at Southern Hills Country Club.
